Chapter 8. Blending Shapes and Colors > Blending intermediate steps

Blending intermediate steps

Now you’ll create a series of blended shapes among three different-colored shapes on the outside of the bowl by specifying the number of steps in the blend and using the Blend tool to create the blend.

1.
Click away from the artwork to deselect it, and then double-click the Blend tool () to open the Blend Options dialog box.

2.
For Spacing, choose Specified Steps, type 6 for the number of steps, and click OK.

3.
Using the Blend tool, click the red diamond with the tool’s upper hollow square, and then click the green diamond to make a blend between them.

A new object is created that blends the shapes of the diamonds and their colors together in six steps.

4.
Now click the blue circle to complete the blended path.

Click objects with Blend tool to create a blend.

Result.

Note

To end the current path and continue blending other objects on a separate path, click the Blend tool in the toolbox first, and then click the other objects.
