Sculptured decoupage, also known as paper tole, is a 3 Dimensional art form in which several copies of a picture are used to build up a layered version of the original. Sculpturing takes away the flat look and adds to the 3D effect. All layers are shaped to give extra depth as opposed to decoupage.

Sculptured decoupage is an interesting and creative hobby for an increasing number of people, providing an unusual and attractive wall decoration for homes, offices and classrooms. Finecraft is involved in all aspects of decoupage.
