I didn’t make this Magic Eye (for that, you can thank http://www.colorstereo.com/), but I did saturate it to add a little pop to it.
Growing up, Magic Eye’s books of 3D designs like this were my absolute favorite. When I was building my dream home for a project in third grade, I told my classroom that I wanted all my walls to be painted with a Magic Eye design.
Can you just imagine this lovely art in my foyer?
Now that’s class.
If you can’t see it, Magic Eye offers this step by step suggestion on their site, to be used with the image on their page– but from countless hours of playground experience, I can tell you that only the first sentence can give you the results you seek– if you’re patient!
Hold the center of the printed image right up to your nose. It should be blurry. Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance. Very slowly move the image away from your face until the two squares above the image turn into three squares. If you see four squares, move the image farther away from your face until you see three squares. If you see one or two squares, start over!
When you clearly see three squares, hold the page still, and the hidden image will magically appear. Once you perceive the hidden image and depth, you can look around the entire 3D image. The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes. The farther away you hold the page, the deeper it becomes. Good Luck!
Can you see the image in the center? Do you miss Magic Eye? What’s the strangest thing in your dream house?
