:"Visual deception" can open up space, solve a decorating problem, or create exciting objets d'art to enliven your home. With just a few tricks of perspective, shadow, and color, anyone can use trompe l'oeil to change the appearance of furniture, ceilings, walls, or an entire room! It's easy, and you don't have to be a skilled painter to get fabulous effects; this basic primer guides you through all the materials; preparing surfaces; mixing colors; and the laws of perspective from background to mid-distance to foreground--even an aerial view. Beautiful projects include a projection of a window overlooking a park, extremely suitable for beginners; painted stones; decorative panels; and classical forms like arches and columns. You won't believe how fast you can get great results!
