What Are These Wall Panels Made Of?

Good Questions

Q: Help! I have painted dining room wall panels with a raised, textured pattern. The paint that covers them is awful and has to go. I cannot tell what the panels are, and whether I should try to restore them or have them removed to put something else in their place. I did strip a little paint from one corner — it seems to go on for layers and layers. Any ideas?
