Trompe L’oeil Using Stencils: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Three-Dimensional Effects for the Home
Lynda Mills. Trompe l’oeil is a French term which literally means ‘deceiving the eye’. It is used to describe any decorative art which imitates reality. In stenciling, this is usually accomplished by creating shape, volume, texture, shade & shadow. Stencils can now be precision-cut by lasers from fine, yet tough, flexible sheets, allowing pin-point accuracy for overlays & a greater potential for detail. Paint tech. means that it is now possible to stencil on virtually any surface. This beautifully illustrated guide features a variety of trompe l’oeil designs & ideas for your home. Over 150 step-by-step photos illustrate how to create beautiful stencilled effects. Basic skills are clearly explained, incl. ragging & colorwashing surfaces, creating form & building up 3-D images.
