Cross processing experiments

I have been playing around with Cross processing.
I stumbled upon this when I worked at Avoncolor labs in the 90’s, much to the utter dismay of the company..

Cross processing happens when you develop C41 film (normal film) with E6 developing chemicals (E6 is used for transparencies). Or vis a vis, E6 to C41.
I done this by mistake and the company had to pay compensation to the client, which ran into the low thousands!! Not a great day at all.
However I loved the effect it produced, and I played around with cross processing a bit more.. but stopped it about two years later.
I am revisiting this process again.

(In an earlier post I mentioned about a new process i am working through, this is not it.. the other process involves lots of painted cardboard .. I will update more when i have it.)
