  1. DO NOT MAKE SHAKERS OUT OF USED FILM CANISTERS. The emulsion rubs off on the plastic and is poisonous. As far as I understand, it cannot be washed off.

  2. @nillo,

    while silver halides do tend to be somewhat not-too-healthy and extremely insoluble in water, any trace amounts of them left in the canisters would hardly pose any threat. Otherwise we’d be handling films as hazmat. ;)

  3. Same as previous post, except 0.75$

    I have a pair in my camping gear. Got the empty canisters for free at my local pharmacy. I guess some people still bring some film in for processing.

    I have tremendous respect for modern art, but selling this more than 5$ for a pair is a total ripoff. Not exactly a revolutionnary idea either. What a swindle!

    Coming from experience working with traditional film.. it’s complete hazmat that’s been traditionally accepted.

    Very very dangerous chemicals… I would not use these as salt shakers. Plus the plastic itself is not food safe and has bisphenol A.
