I was just thinking about another DIY project and i'd like some ideas... would it be possible to make iron oxide emulsion, apply to the corner of s8 film (developed) and then record sound with a magnetic head, possible?

cheers

This was in fact done fifty years ago. The results are poor. Sound quality is far better with a magnetic tape cemented to the film. The tape has already a smooth surface which the rolled-on mass never had. I'd suggest to forget it.
