The One That Got Away
Art Effects paints murals using techniques in Trompe L'Oeil
and faux finishing while creating illusions and effects.
A Trompe L'Oeil Mural can be a unique addition to any room.
One of these mural effects does not have to take up a whole wall.
By using creative techniques with trompe l'oeil and faux finishes
a simple smaller mural can have a larger effect
then if a whole room mural had been painted.
In our "one that got away" trompe l'oeil mural we created an effect
to show off the trophy bass in the botton left corner.
This example shows many techniques with
faux wood, a mini mural, and a trompe l'oeil effect.
Another example of a Trompe L'Oeil Mural is our
"monkey with a bottle trompe l'oeil".
Here you see examples of a broken color glaze used for a faux finish
on the wall, a peeled back, torn look for the trompe l'oeil effect
and the mini monkey mural inside the picture.
Notice how, like in many of our murals, we brought the limb out into the room,
for an added trompe l'oeil effect.
