Hola!!!

Estoy traduciendo un texto sobre imaginería religiosa y me aparece la clasificación "imágenes de tela encolada". ¿Alguien sabe cómo se podría traducir? De antemano, un millón de gracias.

glued cloth
Explanation:
Para la realización de cortinas y techos de cobertizos, se pueden utilizar telas. Por suave y amoldable que sea la tela empleada resulta prácticamente imposible conseguir una caída natural en al que las arrugas y pliegues sean los deseados. Para darles la apariencia de caída natural, se emplea la tela encolada o empapada en escayola bastante líquida. Elegiremos una tela que tenga cuerpo (un trozo de muselina). Cortaremos un trozo de una longitud superior en 2 ó 3 cm. a la altura del vano a cubrir y cuya anchura será aproximadamente el doble de la del hueco.
