You can apply shadow effect to your text in WPF with the help of DropShadowEffect object. It allows you to create a variety of drop shadow effects for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) objects. See the below example which shows a drop shadow effect applied to text. In the following example, the shadow is a soft shadow, which means the shadow color blurs.

The following code example shows how to create a shadow effect.

<Window x:Class="Window1"
    Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300">
       <TextBlock Margin="3,0,3,13" FontSize="40" FontWeight="Bold">
     <TextBlock.Text>Welcome to vbdotnetheaven</TextBlock.Text>
      <DropShadowBitmapEffect ShadowDepth="20" Color="lightgreen" Softness="0"></DropShadowBitmapEffect>

Text after Shadow effect


Note:   You can control the width of a shadow by setting the ShadowDepth property and the softness, or blur, of a shadow by modifying the BlurRadius property whereas a value of 5.0 indicates a shadow width of 5 pixels and value of 0.0 indicates no blurring.
