  • How to make a piece of assemblage art. 3 D Puzzle Photo - Step 1
    Step 1

    First use some kind of photo software to make a stencil type picture, you will need two of them for the 3 D effect. I used photoshop and the photocopy effect also my printer was low on ink but it didn't matter because I used marker to fill in the picture in colored areas. First part I did black.

    Second picture I did red, and if your wondering I did 2 5'7s on a page since I am going to be using an 8 by 10 frame and wanted to add a little more. Also I printed on a glossy photo paper.
