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?

This relates to:
De peur que + Le Subjonctif = For fear that -

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!
