Wooden Frame Tutorial Part 2
An optional secondary portion of the Wooden Frame Tutorial that will help you make the edges cleaner.
What You’ll Be Making:
- Clipping Masks
- Effect Gallery
7. A. Select the left portion of the frame. And go to Edit>Copy or Cmd+V/Ctrl+V.
B. Then go to Edit>Paste in Front or Cmd+F/Ctrl+F.
8. A. Open the appearance window if you haven’t already. If lacking it, go to Window> Appearance. Select the object we pasted and go to the Appearance window and select the grain effect and delete it (don’t click on the blue text link).
B. Draw a selection box over the left portions so that you select both the object with the grain effect and the one without. Then right-click>Create Clipping Mask.
C. Now we have a clipping mask on the left portion.
9. A. Double-click the clipping mask to get inside it.
B. Increase the size of the frame portion so the that we can get rid of the unappealing edges. It won’t matter how large we make it since the mask will clip the size we set earlier.
10. The left side should look like this now.
11. Repeat the process for the other three portions and it should look like this in the end.
I hoped you enjoyed this tutorial and learned something new. An optional part 2 comes after this but feel free to skip it if you want.
