Construction Negatives

Glass negatives are a lot of fun to work with.  They are very fragile and susceptible to fingerprints and other smudges.  The gel that is the photographic image is also quite willing to stick to about anything, including paper and other negatives.  Washing the negatives leaves distortions where the drops of water dry, and drying with a hair dryer softens the gel.
