Past participles as adjectives

In the example soyez decus, the past participle operates as an adjective . Are there any restrictions on this use? Is it possible to use any past participle that fits the bill?

Bonjour Jennifer ! Yes indeed, just like in English, French past participles can be used as adjectives: "Les enfants sont fatiguÉS." -> The children are tirED. However, remember that as any French adjective, they need to agree in gender and number with the thing they refer to :) I hope that's helpful!
