Hand Painted and Hand Inked limited edition cels
Up until 1961 with the production of 101 Dalmations,  cels were hand inked
as well as being hand- painted. However from that year on, Ub Iwerks and
the Xerox Corporation began using a mechanical technique to transfer
the line work from drawings onto cels, thus bypassing the need for
hand- inking.
Yet at the Ink and Paint Department of Disney a dedicated
team still use the techniques of yesteryear by Hand-inking a small
selection of Limited Edition cels. Some of these stunning pieces of art
can be seen below.
