On Your Own

Remember that you blended two colored circles to create the main part of the candy and then you grouped all of the objects. To create a new color of candy, you need to change the color of the original two circles you created before you applied the blend. FreeHand will then create new colors for each step in the blend.

To change the color of the candy, first select the largest of the circles. If you created an eight-step blend, you will have eight circles. Use the Subselect tool, or (for an easier approach) hold down Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) and click the outside edge of the circle; change the color of that circle. Select the Fill property on the Object panel, and you’ll see a color chip with the color you just applied to the circle. Drag that color chip to the Tints panel. Now drag either the 80 or 90 percent color from the Tints panel to the middle of your candy. You should see a new candy color. Make as many different candy colors as you like. Convert each color to a new symbol. In the next task, you will use those candy symbols to create a graphic hose.
