The layers are creating the Illusion Effect but we can do more with these layers to increase the effect of Illusion.

Similarly, rotate the other layers but remember the angle rotation will be increasing in each layer.
For instance, if you have set the angle of rotation for the second innermost layers at the value of 10o then the angle of rotation for the third innermost layers will be more than 10o and the angle of rotation will keep on increasing so on.
Step 3
After rotating each layer, the shape will look like this-
