It's a far cry from Mr. Ed.

1876-77 Degas was threatened with court action because he took so long to finish this piece for a friend. He removed riders from the left of the frame and added the man with a hat at the right hand side before it was "complete"

Yes probably, you could scrape with a knife or spatula.

I'm still amazed by how accurate some of the painting is, knowing it would be projected at cinema screen size!

There was a neat trick backlighting the lightsabers frame by frame with a fluorescent tube and a scalpel. Painstaking though.

Matte paintings were used before the dawn of competent computer graphics to simulate a larger/more dramatic/exotic location than can be achieved in a film studio. Paint was directly applied to glass, which then sat between the camera and the actors (leaving a clear section to capture them).
