Sorry I don't have much to offer in the way of Aerochrome at the moment, but I do have this!

INTRODUCING FLASH 120
SPECIAL FX FILM
In the absence of Aerochrome, I've been working with other types of aerial film. Some interesting stuff coming soon. My first project is FLASH 120. This is not an infrared film stock. It's a color negative aerial film that I have cut to medium format and pre-flashed. This is not a double exposure, but actually more like a rayograph. I use real-life objects and textures and flash their images directly onto the film in the darkroom. That's right folks! I am deliberately leaking light onto the film. It's something I've really enjoyed doing over the years, so I want to offer some to anyone interested. There is a Gold and a Red version. In the Red version, I am also flashing in some Aerochrome colors for a sort of simulated ir image. For those who see the beauty and the fun of this project, it's also a great opportunity for collaboration. I do the front end and you do the rest. Strictly experimental and loving it!
I'm sorry that I have not much to offer in the way of Aerochrome at the moment. My last acquisition was a large batch that turned out to be all bad. This unfortunate event set me back quite a bit, but I'm still on the search. I do have some very small odd sized scraps of Aerochrome. I don't know how someone would use them, but shoot me a mail, if you are interested.
BIG NEWS: Home-made Aerochrome
I've teamed up with some folks who are determined to create a home-made version of Aerochrome. The guys are getting closer and we could see a beta version as early as this autumn. I know that it's hard to believe. Please feel free to give me some feedback if you think you may be interested in this project.
