gunky film/negative separation

greenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

i had one fabulously successful run with a pack of 669 film - all was beautiful and had worked they way id expected from what i've read. then disaster arrived. every time (with three more packs of film) i try to separate the print from the negative - 10-15 seconds worked well for the first pack - i get nothing but black gunk. waiting longer (up to about a minute) helped lower gunk factor but so much development makes the transfer very cyan and washed out. also had problems with bright spots in the same place with later packs. allowing the print to develop fully was ok, though, no spots, no problems. gunky/spotty problems were just with the early pulling apart necessary for doing transfers. any ideas? i'm stumped and so frustrated. thanks in advance, kim
