I was digging through boxes, and found some more photos I thought you might like to see.
This is Windstone Editions in full swing when we were in California on Saticoy St. in North Hollywood. These show the paint department, and were probably taken around 1989.
(That is a guess, we really should of documented things better!)
The big blue tubes are exhaust vents for the airbrush booths. Each booth had a big wheel in the middle on which was set many small wheels for painting individual pieces. The painters worked on many pieces at once, using a whole arsenal of airbrushes that were all hooked up at the same time. We had around 20 airbrush booths and several more booths just for applying the metallic details that go on the dragons. It was pretty noisy, but there was lots of ventilation!
