Damaged Backgrounds

Both of these backgrounds show the same type of damage. The acrylic paint that is used to paint cels is very sticky. If the cel is left in direct contact with the background they eventually stick together. If someone tries to separate the layers afterwards, paint gets pulled off of the watercolor background. In the case of the blue Last Unicorn background, I know they came apart during shipping. The seller stated that they were stuck together, but they were separated when they arrived.

The red background was already damaged when the seller was auctioning it. I have no idea how or when the damage occurred.
