Details: Product Description Produce truly convincing fakes with an introduction to the skills, along with more than 400 color photographs and 100 templates and illustrations. Create the impression of woodgrain, stonework, grisaille, lace, fabric folds, and other 3-D effects. Build confidence, and sophistication, with projects large and small—including a permanent “checked tablecloth”; stone window frame and view; Etruscan fresco; and Provençal mural. Amazon.com Review The remarkable eye-fooling effects of trompe l'oeil painting can fully encompass entire rooms, but they can be equally stunning--and much easier to achieve--when applied to individual home décor items. Trompe L'oeil: Techniques & Projects by Jan Lee Johnson provides the necessary background and detailed step-by-step instructions to enable even the novice to convincingly portray stone, lace, grisaille, marble, fabric, and still-life scenes featuring realistic-looking imitation postcards, flower arrangements, and accessory-filled shelves. Try out the techniques on trays, plaques, cupboards, tabletops, and small wall areas; there's even a cool-looking toilet seat sporting an intricate faux mosaic design. Several of the 10 projects require a more experienced hand, but confident newcomers should be able to handle the easier ones after some practice and with Johnson's skillful guidance. Templates are included for all the design motifs. --Amy Handy
