CSS Claymorphism

Hello Guyz today i am going to show you the beautiful claymorphism effect using CSS.

Lets get Started...

HTML - Here i have used Tailwind css to style the form components,
so add the tailwind either through npm or through cdn

   <div className="h-screen bg-indigo-100 flex justify-center items-center">
       <form className="w-blue-claymorphism w-full max-w-xs flex flex-col py-5 px-8" action="">
          <label className="text-gray-700 font-bold py-2" htmlFor="">Email</label>
          <input className="text-gray-700 shadow border rounded border-gray-300 focus:outline-none focus:shadow-outline py-1 px-3 mb-3" type="email" placeholder="Email"  />
          <label className="text-gray-700 font-bold py-2" htmlFor="">Password</label>
          <input className="text-gray-700 shadow border rounded border-gray-300 mb-3 py-1 px-3 focus:outline-none focus:shadow-outline" type="password" placeholder="********"  />
       <div className="grid grid-cols-2 gap-3 place-content-between my-4">
          <button className="bg-blue-500 hover:bg-blue-700 text-white font-bold rounded py-1 px-4 place-self-end" >
             Sign In
          </button>
      <div className="text-sm text-blue-600 hover:text-blue-800 font-bold place-self-end">
        Forgot Password?
      </div>
   </div>
     <div className="grid grid-cols-2 place-content-between my-4">
         <div className="text-slate-600 hover:text-blue-800 font-bold" >
         Dont have an Account?
      </div>
        <div className="place-self-end">
          <button className="bg-green-500 hover:bg-slate-700 text-white font-bold rounded py-1 px-3 text-white">
           Sign Up
            </button>
         </div>
       </div>
    </form> 
</div>

CSS Code -

/* Claymorphism */
.w-green-claymorphism,
.w-blue-claymorphism,
.w-red-claymorphism,
.w-purple-claymorphism {
    padding: 50px;
    border-radius: 50px;
}

.w-green-claymorphism {
    background-color: hsl(120deg, 20%, 95%);
    box-shadow:
        34px 34px 68px hsl(120deg, 10%, 50%),
        inset -8px -8px 16px hsl(120deg, 20%, 50%),
        inset 0px 14px 28px hsl(120deg, 20%, 95%);
}

.w-blue-claymorphism {
    background-color: hsl(190deg, 20%, 95%);
    box-shadow:
        34px 34px 68px hsl(190deg, 10%, 50%),
        inset -8px -8px 16px hsl(190deg, 20%, 50%),
        inset 0px 14px 28px hsl(120deg, 20%, 95%);
}

.w-red-claymorphism {
    background-color: hsl(10deg, 20%, 95%);
    box-shadow:
        34px 34px 68px hsl(10deg, 10%, 50%),
        inset -8px -8px 16px hsl(10deg, 20%, 50%),
        inset 0px 14px 28px hsl(120deg, 20%, 95%);
}

.w-purple-claymorphism {
    background-color: hsl(300deg, 20%, 95%);
    box-shadow:
        34px 34px 68px hsl(300deg, 10%, 50%),
        inset -8px -8px 16px hsl(300deg, 20%, 50%),
        inset 0px 14px 28px hsl(120deg, 20%, 95%);
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

We have used the box shadow property with hsl color scheme to provide the inset and shadow effect

HTML

 <form className="w-blue-claymorphism .....">
.
.
.
.
</form>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

We have applied the w-blue-claymorphishm class to the form element to apply the effect to the entire form

Claymorphism - definitely the "go to" style when you want your site to look like a Fisher Price kids' toy
