Going Really Old School: Colour Photos from Black and Whites

"We love the ease of digital photography, but sometimes we get an itch for some experimentation. We want to feel like old school photography masters: mixing chemicals in darkrooms and watching images as they slowly develop. So, what did we do when we learned that some of the first color photographs were made almost 150 years ago, and they weren't made with color film?"
If you're feeling a need to do things differently, here's an old way of making colour photos using a black and white based process. It's a bit redundant in this day and age, but it's a good way of finding out how colour works. Experiment, and enjoy!
