It is an object of the invention to produce a ,
picture the scenic background of which is dis

A further object is to provide a picture of this
type which can be framed and then‘displayed
either by mounting it on suitable supports or by y
hanging it.
With the foregoing and other objects in view
which will appear as the description proceeds,
the invention resides in certain novel details of
construction and combinations of parts and cer
tain steps of the method hereinafter more fully
described and explained, it being understood that
changes may be made in the invention without
departing from the spirit thereof as claimed.
In the accompanying ‘drawing„the preferred
form of the invention has been illustrated.
In said drawing,
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the trough
containing the scenic background, said trough be

Figure 2 is a vertical section through the com
pleted picture.
Figure 3 is a front elevation thereof.
In producing a picture having the present im
provements, a trough of suitable proportions is
first prepared. This can be made of strong card
board or any other suitable material and pref- n
erably formed with segmental ends l joined by a
sheet of material 2 secured to and conforming
with the curvature of the arcuate edges of the
Also it can be utilized as a means for holding
portions of vegetation which, after being dried,
can be permanently colored.
Some of these ap
It is to be understood that all of the foreground
structure is located within the- trough and after
10 the contents of the trough are completely dried
following the assembly of all parts thereof, said
v trough is set into a frame 6.01- other holding
means containing a glass 'l or the like constitut
ing a protecting means.
In preparing the picture, it is preferred to use
a composition made up of papier-mâché, one part,
finely sifted sand, one part, and plaster of Paris,
two parts. These ingredients are thoroughly
mixed with a sufficient amount of glue to make a
pliable composition. It is While in the pliable
state that the plastic is placed in the trough
and moulded and it is also while in this state
thevvarious objects 5 which can represent vege
tation, rocks, etc. are inserted into the moulded
material so as to extend therefrom. The coloring
of the foreground is effected after the composi
tion has completely hardened and it is preferred
to use genuine oil colors in this iinal treatment
of the plastic and the parts supplied thereto.
What is claimed is:
A three dimensional picture including an elon_
gated trough of sheet material having segmental
ends and an open face, the inner surface of the
trough being provided with a scenic background,
» a plastic material partially filling the trough and
extending from end to end thereof, said filling
being extended backwardly to and merging into
