Spectra image manipulation

greenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

Got a lot of questions so please bear with me. I just made some enlargements, of digital scans of images I made many years ago, on "manipulated" spectra film by rubbing he photo while developing with a blunt object, Prety much like the ones done on SX-70 film. I lke to create new images with that technique so I tried again with some Spectra film I got at eBay, all I can fo is scratch the surface plus the colors look incredibly dull. Has the Spectra film been changed in some way it can no longer be manipulated or did I get some bad film? Should I get an SX-7- camera instead and can this type of manipulation be done on 600 type of film like the one used in the polaroid 680 cmera?

I don't know if you'll read this. Your post is a few months old. But I have seen some manipulations done with 600 platinum film. Here is a link to a 600 manipulation (scroll down past the sx 70 manipulations). The one here looks pretty good.
