A scholar of New St. Andrews College, Idaho, claims to have successfully created an image very like the Shroud of Turin.

He did it with a combination of glass, paint, linen and sunlight - all available to a possible Mediaeval forger.



Wilson put fabric under a glass panel painted with a human face - using white paint - and left it in the sun for a few days.

Wilson found that when a positive image of a man's face was painted onto glass, and left over linen beneath the sun, a color inversion took place, creating a photo negative.

"Wherever light paint had been applied, the linen remained dark beneath, and wherever the darker shade of linen had been left bare, the image lightened. In this regard, the image produced is very similar to that of the Turin Shroud," Wilson told Discovery News.

In addition, the rising and setting of the sun - exposing the image from nearly one hundred and eighty degrees - encoded the image on the cloth three-dimensionally.

This is not to say that the Shroud of Turin definitely is a forgery, merely that the ingredients and knowledge required to create such an item did exist during the middle ages - the time frame when forgeries were widespread and 'pardoners' cashed in on the pious nature of pilgrims.

Wow, would you look at that. Miracles of technomology.
I agree, just because we can reproduce that effect does not make the shroud a forgery. I guess this is textbook material to some people on ebay. Gosh the things they sell!

Scientists have been trying for years to work out how the shroud was painted onto the linen, without success. Of particular interest was the '3D' effect of taking a negative of the original. This 'sun-bleaching' process is the closest anyone has got so far to replicating it.

I may give it a go in the Summer
