The Cartoon Color Company Inc

Riding back to Superfad from lunch in Culver City I noticed this awesome anachronism. I went in to visit, and sure enough, the Cartoon Colour Co. still makes paints to use on acetate cels for animation. ¬†They started in 1947 making different shades of grey. Naturally they then moved on to colour. In the understatement of the year, Van explains “there’s a fair few less customers now”.¬†Their paints are still used to restore cels from old animations and by a bunch of cel paint devotees / obsessive weirdos (hi matt).
