600 film won't work for the Polaroid Image Transfer process. You need 669 film (assuming same size) for the transfer. Although you could theoretically make a scan of your polaroid, convert it to a 35mm slide, and enlarge via Daylab to the 669 film, and then make an image transfer, it would definitely not be an inexpensive process. To learn more about the process, I recommend Kathleen Carr's book on the process "Polaroid Transfers: A Complete Visual Guide to Creating Image and Emulsion Transfers" --- and taking a class in the process (the book is great, but everyone I know who's tried to learn solely from the book has had a hard time of it - you really need someone to coach you through the process and help you troubleshoot).
