Hello. I shoot a lot of 35 mm infrared film, and I love the halo effect given by the lack of an anti-halation backing. I know that all standard black and white films have this feature, and I know that the backing is usually water soluble. This leads me to the question I have been dying to know the answer to. If I were to soak the film, prior to even loading it into my camera to shoot, would it remove the anti-halation backing? And would the film then be rendered useless from water damage, or could I dry it out, and have a roll of black and white film that would have the halo effect I so love with my IR film? If anybody has tried this or knows if it would work, let me know! Thanks everybody!
