The darkroom technique of solarisation is fairly simple and easy to do. It just needs a little bit of patience and experimentation. Made famous by the Photographer & Artist Man Ray. Select a negative, place in the enlarger, expose the photographic paper normally (under red darkroom safe lights). Then turn on the main room light for just a few seconds (to expose the photographic paper and print) Then develop, stop and fix as per a normal print. Then wash and dry the print as normal.
