    I'm curious to see how this project transpires.
    I'm not quite clear on your design ideas.
    Would you please document the process with pics so we can see how it progresses?

    Have you tried more than one box of film?
    Looking at the unexposed edges, there is fogging.
    My first thought is old, fogged or light-struck film.
    How is the film being processed?
