putting multiple gradients on a path (shadows)
on Sep 19, 2010 at 11:04:32 pm

Hi,
I have an object which is a path (a nose to be specific). Now I want both a linear gradient and a radial gradient to be added to the object. So these must be separate gradient objects I guess, and I can't find a way to add multiple separate gradients to a complete path so do I duplicate the object and then apply a new gradient to each object? And what would the layer transparency features look like? Would the 'normal' overlay of the layers work? I am afraid of multiple shadows creating double dark regions, but maybe that is as its supposed to be if you think in terms of classical art and draw shadows in terms of each light obstruction.
Thanks,
A. M.

Alex,

You can apply multiple fills to the same object via the Appearance Panel. Each fill can be manipulated separately while still being part of the same object.
