The Walls are Growing Trees
A recent message thread on the Atrium, an online chapter of SALI that I belong to, got me looking at the work of Tom Moberg.
This man creates carved sculptural landscapes on walls using joint compound and plaster. I picked my favorites to show. These are the “simpler” looking ones. They discuss his process on this DIY web page. It would take a considerable amount of time to develop his skills, but I am thinking that you could get something reasonably good looking by starting with a thick plaster application through a heavy foliate stencil and start building and carving from there.
