I can think of several applications for this technique….I find it fascinating although I am not that keen on this subject.

Here is the link

What would you find it useful for Hattie?  I could live without the deer coming at me from my wall! big_laugh

I'll try that again!

I can see it used in a rather jokey take on various period decorative details; like,say, a piece of carving taken from a Chippendale mirror.

 

No, TA, personally I would not enjoy a stags head on my wall but you have to remember this link is from the USA where decorative hunting items are very popular....to each their own. smile 

Strangely enough many years ago I made a three-dimensional summer fireplace screen; I used  17th & 18th Century still life paintings of flowers in ceramic vasesas inspiration. I made cut outs of single flowers (from decorative wrapping papers) applied to foam board &  made a half pot by moulding it of papier-mache over a vase I had & covering the end result with a blue & white design from another wrapping paper. I assembled the flowers in the half pot & stood that against a large board (also covered in flowers as a background). I still have it to hide my wood-stove in the summer. If I can get my camera working I will take a photo. I am surprised it lasted so long....it has to be nearly 20 years old. I suppose years of prop-making in the theatre pays off at home.  laugh

I hope you do manage to find your camera, that sounds lovely.  Your expertise in the theatre must put you in good stead for crafts of that nature.

I'll try that again!

I made a 3D picture once, the picture was deconstructed from a card and then moulded on the back to round it off and then reassembled using foam sticky pads to arrange it. Can't show you a picture as I did it years ago and it is now at my mother's house cheers
