As you properly know the redscale film is made by turning the color negative film “around” so the light gets through the film from the back side.
And that made me think, can you do the same with a slide film?

Has anyone ever tried it?
Or am I missing something obvious, that indicates that it doesn’t work?

Well as always, the internet can help you out, I did a quick search on Rescale/slide film, and found this rather old post on Lomography’s website – https://www.lomography.com/magazine/10372-make-x-pro-redscale

I also found a flickr gallery with slide/redscale photos, made from a Velvia 50 film – https://www.flickr.com/photos/35591183@N02/3512820180/in/album-72157621033389282/

So apparently it’s doable, maybe I should try it out for myself one day…

NB: the post photo is just a normal redscale photo.
