Trompe L'oiel bird's nest in a hole in the wall??

NANCY_MASSFebruary 9, 2002

I have seen a picture of a trompe l'oeil effect of a bird's nest in a hole in the wall. It appears to be a broken wall and the bird has just nested in it. Does anyone know of where I could get a pattern for this because it just looks so neat. Thank you. Nancy

Nancy, if you can paint something from just looking at it, this may be what you want.http://colourfaux.com/blbirds.jpg
go to the right and click on the second one down, to enlarge it. Vique.

Here's an idea...

While I was doing a promotion for work I borrowed an overhead projector form DH's office (you could try the library)and projected it on to the wall/paper/sign material.

That way I could get all the little details and not worry about losing scale, or outlining it onto the wall first.

Just an idea.......
