Most places don't give you x-rays.  Instead they scrape off the image (?) and and reuse them.  If you have a pet, go to family vet and ask if they have any.  Our vet gave me a few puppies and guinea pigs once...

i am quite sure that reusing the developed negatives to these foils is impossible. you can compare that to an normal image, you cant scrape the color off your image and reuse it.

You might get a strong no if you walk into a hospital and ask straight away, but i am sure nearly everybody got a friend or at least a friend of a friend working at a hospital that could make a contact or ask for you.

Alex:

I was wondering how come your glasses appear to be colored when there done, but during the process look clear/normal?  Please explain.

Thanks!

The "colored" glasses are clear but filled with a colored beverage. :-D  Ya' gotta look really close!


hehe, yes thats true.

thats just "foodcolor" in hot water Smiley

yes, nasty trick, but it does look better and since their intended use is for cockails...

yes, finding that chemical was really really dificult i called every craft shop in my area, and everybody heard about it but nobody knew where to get it...
finally i found this manufacturer www.tgk.de and looked up the closest dealer.

The chemical for "frosted" is maybe the wrong one... i guess it means "satinieren" and is nothing more like a dull color you apply, but this chemical reallly burns in the glas.

I hope that helps,
Alex

Hi,

i called the german manufactor of the etching creme and they told me to put the plastik bottle into 60C water and wait a bit, i did that an the crystalines in my etching creme were not entirely all gone but a lot smaller then before.
This procedure is also recommended to reactivate the acid power, but this trick doesnt work too often.
i am not sure if my cream is chemical exact to yours oversea but i guess the main components will be the same.

and here is my etched glas:
