I hate you polaroid....

sigh, i use polaroid film for some of my art work. take for instance the art below....


Well Polaroid has stated they are going to stop making the film soon. they have made enough to last through 2009. That bites the big one. Because i have nothing i can use now. You got to remember the film never hits a camera i just use my fingers or what ever is at hand to manipulate the developer up on to the plastic then let it dry. The developer then gets colored. Since the developer goes up in diffrent thiknesses it comes out in diffrent shapes and usually makes the colors go weird. I have nothing i can use to the stuff the way i do it other than instamatic film from polaroid. So when they stop its over.

Ok i can use transperace film. (clear plastic sheets that can be used in a printer) but it will not be the same because i would have to find a diffrent thing to squish up on to it so i can create diffrent tectures that i can color and creat smooth pictures with.

Not to mention gus uses polaroid film to get pictures with people. Crap this sucks....

Aww, man. :( I hope you find a replacement that works. Or buy up the 2009 production run. Digital cameras really did kill Polaroid's market.
