Trompe L'Oeil

Trompe L'Oeil

by JanLeeJohnson (Author)


"Trompe l'oeil" is an artistic attempt at illusionism within optical space, that makes it difficult to tell whether or not a painted surface is real. This is a step-by-step guide to the art of painting fakes! Learn the skills and techniques and create some individual decorations to brighten up your home. There are instructions on how to create wood grain, stonework and lace effects, using household paint, a brush and a sponge. Projects include: a mosaic toilet seat; a terracotta tiled table; a memo board; a stone window frame and view; and a provencal-style mural.
