For an art project we are trying to make the emulsion of a color print "melt". The idea is to have at least part of the image run off the page as if it were watercolor. I have soaked the print for four days and the emulsion dissolved completely. We boiled the print for over an hour and while the emusion got very soft it stayed on the base. Any ideas? Could be inkjet also, haven't tried that yet.

Welcome! Inkjet will run very easily and probably the easiest way to do what you want.

Fuji instant color negatives are quite easy to destruct with chemicals.

If you use glossy paper, you can use solvents like Xylene or other mineral spirits. However, I don't know how much it will reduce the life of the print.

Oops, sorry,

Solvents will make the ink run. It won't mimic melting emulsion
