Very many years ago I used to use  diazochrome film to create slides of 
scientific line drawings.  It produced white lines on a blue background.

Diazochrome film was used - was processed in ammonia.  But them came 
computers and powerpoint.  I doubt that anyone produces diazochrome film 
any longer.

Could you use glass instead of a plastic?
