Anyone have any experience making holograms? Where would I buy the materials? Can I make a hologram out of a picture, or does the thing I'm turning into a hologram already have to be 3 dimensional?
The film was my main concern. Where do I get it? Is the film specifically for making holograms? Because if it is, where would I buy it? How often do people make their own holograms?Oh yeah, film... do they still make that?
So it was a daisy that was drawn onto something and the hologram was created from that?Come on think about it for a second... That picture is really 3d, it does have a front and back. I carried a hologram of a hand drawn Daisy for years, until the emulsion wore off the film. I also carried a "blank" hologram that is there was no object just the image of the 2 point sources main and reference beams. This in effect was a diffraction grating in my pocket, had lots of fun with it until... the emulsion wore off film.
There is a kit for making holograms: <http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/lights/7782/>.
That's cool. I'd get that if it wasn't so expensive. But I've done some searches and the holographic film isn't cheap. And I don't know where I'd buy it at a local place. What kind of store would sell that?
I could make it myself, but I'd probably end up poisoning myself. I'm no chemist.
