Papier maché low relief on a wooden plate. This copy of John Bauer's famous painting measures about 12 inches wide by 13 inches high without frame. It represents Princess Tuvstarr gazing down into the dark waters of the forest tarn.

That is really beautiful. What type of paper mache or paper clay did you use?It looks nice and smooth.

Hi Ina, the technique I used is mainly layering on top of twisted newspaper, and then I apply a layer of homemade coating, which makes it look rather smooth. For the lower part, to accentuate the effect of reflection in the water, I admit having forced on the layers of varnish :)

Hi Phil. Very nice! You've done a most painterly job of creating the illusion of depth. I like to try to create the illusion of another world within/beyond using mixed paper/paint/? mediums, so I really like this dreamy scene of yours. The use of the varnish is a grand idea.
