Wink Doing Trompe L'oeil

Before I did much stamping, I did lots of stenciling.

What was great was discovering that I could easily combine both to produce on of my fave looks--Trompe L'oeil (TLO).

French for "fool the eye", this technique gives the illusion of 3D on 2D items--like cards, walls, etc.

Although it employs such standard stamping techniques as masking, the real trick to a successful TLO piece is getting the cast shadows correct.

Here's a fan I made. And "Yes" it was very labor-intensive. But... It wasn't particularly difficult. Not saying it's a quick & easy, but stampers used to doing masking will often find they pick up the process more easily.

My second example was done in the same way as the fan.

Important to note. To be a true TLO, the piece must be done without piecing or layering.

I am the first to state that both of my examples could stand better work on the cast shadows.

They look pretty good to me.

So, it's done with sponging and masking, Daniel? I have done this type of thing on a very small scale. Do you have a tutorial fro making one of these pieces?

Nancy (& Susan). I'd love to offer tutorials. Alas. I'm not able to scan & load visuals these days. That greatly limits sharing the step-by-step that works best for many of us.

But I'll see if I can find an OOB way--just not right away.
