Application August 29, 194‘5, Serial No. .613,324 1 Claim. 1 (C1. 41-24) . 2 - This invention relates to a three dimensional scenic background and can bersuitably colored. picture and to a method of producing the same. It is an object of the invention to produce a , picture the scenic background of which is dis played on the concave surface vof a trough WhileY various objects so that Ythey will extend from the foreground. Among those illustrated are minute the foreground portion of the picture comprises moulded material serving to support reproduc tions of Vegetation and other objects positioned plied objects have been indicated at 5. Y in proper proportions in front of portions of the . foreground. 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 ing employed as a form in the shaping of the foreground. 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 ` the background and depicting a scenic fore ground, objects seated in the plastic material and ends. Displayed on the concave surface of the 40 supported thereby iixedly for display in front of sheet 2 is a scenic background 3 produced in any the background, means joined t0 the edges of the manner desired.
