    Cute. Except there are few people using Polaroids Instamatic cameras anymore. Not least because no new ones are being made, and the film is expensive

    HOWEVER, there are plenty of us using small "instant digital printers." I have a "ZIP PRINTER" that I use all the time which is pretty excellent. And it's pictures are smaller so they don't waste as much of what you started with...

    Thanks for your comment. In the tutorial I wanted to capture an artistic representation of a polaroid photograph, you don't necessarily have to use a photographic paper, you can use any type of cardboard to achieve the same result.
