Imprinting an object, not text?

Hi There,

I'm designing a graphic and I need it to look like a footprint, as in the object in question has walked along and left an inprint in whatever it was walking on. Kind of like this:

only not text but an object (a paw print is the specific object I'm working on).

I swear I've searched everywhere but can only find answers for text. I have tried using extrude and bevel but I'm either doing it wrong or it doesn't give the desired look. It doesn't imprint as such vs turning the object to look more side on. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. My apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but I have been searching for a while now

If you can use a style for text, it's quite likely you can use it for any object. Here's a quick example of an appearance:

The Transform effect under each stroke is a slight offset in opposite directions.

Hi @Doug A Roberts,
Thanks a lot for those first elements of replies !
I have stumble upon that page, searching originally for the very same solutions to that matter of "pawprint" appearance.
I am tryine to decypher and reconstruct everything from the picture you posted above, but i am afraid i am missing points : could you please give us some more details instructions in order to get that appearance set up above ??
Thanks a lot and have a good One,
Damien
