3 Dimensional Decoupage

This craft is the art of taking a number of identical art prints, cutting, shaping, moulding and mounting the cut pieces with silicon gel to give elevation and create a three dimensional effect. In Canada Australia and the US it is usually known as Paper Tole. In Japan it is known as shadow box.

What and where to cut is determined by careful study of the subject matter. The subject is divided into background, middle and foreground and the layers added so as to promote the foreground to prominence by using more layers.

This art is related to decoupage in that the base print is glued down to a backing board or onto a three dimensional object, and some of the same finishing techniques can be used. Decoupage however, normally uses selected parts from many different prints. A simple three dimensional project can be accomplished with as few as three or four identical prints, a highly detailed print can use any number depending on the effect required by the individual artist.

This craft is not new but has recently seen a strong upsurge in popularity. Virtually any art print can be used to make a three dimensional picture but those with hard edges and strong contrasts within the picture are the easiest to do as they offer the best cutting options. Flowers are the most popular subject by far. The most intricate are animals or birds. Specialist techniques have been developed to cope with the problems raised by fur and feathers. These techniques are extremely detailed and intricate taking intense concentration. The finished results however can be breathtaking.
