Original Robin Hood hand painted cartoon cel with certificate of authenticity. Cel animation is one of the most traditional forms of animation and involves objects - usually characters - being hand-drawn on clear celluloid sheets and placed over painted backgrounds. These are known as animated cels or animation cels. The practice of hand drawing individual frames of animation on sheets of thin, transparent plastic.
These animations were called animated cels and the technique, popularised by Disney from the late 1930s, became known as cel amination. The outline is drawn on one side and the colour added on the other and then the animated cel is placed over a pre-created background and photographed. Frame by frame cel drawing created animated cels that looked incredible - rich in detail, colour and depth.But the process itself was time consuming and drained resource. Limited animation was developed as a compromise.
Where possible, teams using limited animation techniques would re-use existing frames, only creating new animated cels when necessary. Wide scale lamination of animation production cels is something the Walt Disney Art Program resorted to as a commercial means to keep cel paint adhered to the acetate. Lamination was also something the Walt Disney Art Program did to their line of hand painted limited edition cels. Cel paintings were frequently laminated on both sides of the art- although this was not consistent as their art program also distributed art where lamination was done only to the back side of the cel paintings. With time Disney's lamination processes suffered from lamination failure of one sort or other.
That had a lot to do with inherant problems in the original materials. As in the case with the modern art program, there is the additional problem that the laminate chosen could not possibly adhere to the acetate cel sheets for any great length of time. Cels distributed from this art program often develop large canals of air pockets, which frequently intersect in the center of the cel sheet. Partial restoration and conservation of these cels paintings are possible.
