Cels stuck to pencil (Fri Sep 11 21:11:17 1998
Is there a consensus on dealing with cels which have become attached to the pencil? I have received conflicting advice on this topic. The well-known article by Curtis Hoffman (The Care and Handling of Animation Cels)suggests taking them to a gallery, which is not practical if the cost exceeds the value of the cel. In the same article, Robert Woodhead advises "gentle peeling" of the pencil (not the cel), working around the edges of the "stuck bit". I spoke to a couple of dealers at Expo 98, one advised using a hair dryer to generate heat, the other advised putting the cel in the fridge, to generate cold!
