    I’ve never done it but at a guess, put wet plaster on and mould it bith the back of a wet spoon, or put it on wait till it dries then sand it to shape you want.

    Yes,use plaster-apply with a very flexible pallete knife and you can put (for example) mountains , valleys etc . As long as you have a general idea of the scene you want to portray , do a rough “sketch” in the plaster . O.K.?

    I think what you are looking for is called: Gesso, or a light molding paste.It is used on canvas to give the raised and textured affect. Can be purchased from any art supply.
