Flappers, Jesters, and Socket covers on Wainscotting

This a commission I am finishing. Originally I was using old images from Vanity Fair, but found it a bit to cluttered. The local lumber company gladly donated a generous quantity of scrap wainscotting to my cause. The material works so well for the base relief pieces, it is so sturdy....but must be roughed with a file to allow the adhesive to stick properly. The figures, were actually create by the client who commissioned the piece as well as the triangle inserts. They are scraps from wooden bowls they make in their woodshop.

A fellow art amigo often accuses me of throwing everything in but the kitchen sink.... so for this one I decided that the kitchen sink worked! Now the hard part of attaching the hardwire to hang, which means it is finished. Will post the finish product within the next few days.
