Multi-level clipping mask
on Oct 22, 2008 at 9:38:02 pm

I have a logo I am working on of a lady wearing an apron with stripes on it. I have 3 main layers:

1. Stripes
2. Apron
3. Body

What I need to do is make a clipping mask of the stripes on top of the apron, then do a clipping mask of both those layers on top of her body. You can see the images on this page to get an idea of what I'm working with.

The problem is that when I stack the layers and try to do the clipping masks, it uses the bottom layer for all of them. I understand that this is how Photoshop is supposed to work, but what is the work-around? I've tried to apply a clipping mask to a group (folder), but that won't work.

Also, I'm doing the logo using vector masks, so I can't just merge down the layers as you normally would. I need to maintain the ability to blow this thing up.

Any ideas?
