Chapter 6. WORKING IN COLOR > Overprinting Colors

Overprinting Colors

Overprinting is a technique that allows you to set the color of one object to mix with any colors underneath. For instance, without overprinting, a yellow object placed over a blue background will print as yellow. But with overprinting turned on, the yellow object mixes with the blue background to create green.

Tip

You cannot see the effects of setting an object to overprint until you create film separations.
