Chapter 15. Fills, Multi-Fills, and Fab ... > Applying Multi-Fills and Effects

Applying Multi-Fills and Effects

The idea of multiple fills sounds pretty strange right out of the gate. On the one hand, how can you put more than one fill in one object anyway? Isn't an object an object and that's that? On the other hand, if you're going to do something as crazy as putting in more than one, you'd never see one of them anyway, so what's the big deal?

The big deal is what happens if you do something to change the position of the second fill, or the nooks, or the crannies, or the whole shape of the fill. The distortion effects described in Chapter 19—Roughen, Twirl, Scribble, and so on—can move one fill so that it doesn't sit exactly on top of another. And suddenly multiple fills start to make sense. Suddenly you realize that you can create much more interesting looks than simple flat fills.
