How did old hand-drawn animation achieve such consistent color?


Mainly wondering how they avoided discoloration or the presence of brushstrokes. Thanks!

My godfather actually worked as a color specialist in a small animation studio in Lithuania during 80s. He told me the stories how he spent countless days mixing paint so it would be consistent. Writing down the exact numbers of how much of every color he used to create one or another shade of required color. Also he did mess up couple of times, just by adding couple drops more than needed. He said that in hand drawn animation it’s VERY easy to notice even the slightest change in the shade of the colour when watching the final result
