Hi Folks, 

 

Newbie here with another silly question!

 

So following on from a previous post I finally managed to draw my descending ribbon using get even tool. I now need to fill it with colour but this is were it has all gone wrong. When I fill the ribbon shape with colour it does not follow the lines in the shape (Sorry this is hard to explain) 

The shape is made of of three fillable sections with each needing to be a slightly different colour so as not to blend in on itself, I will eventually be removing the thin black pen boarder line you see. When I fill the shape it seems to fill random sections and over fill the boarder line. I have attached the file for someone to have a look at. I'm clueless with this... I know someone out there knows exactly where I am going wrong.

 

Sorry if this is all a bit confusing but as I already said it's a hard one to explain.

 

Hope you can help me out... again!

Hi Mvdarbs, the main problem is that you are not able to control the fill in an open path.  Both paths really need to be closed.  The hard part then is to have the 3 paths be as close as possible.  The return curve on the lower object layer will be hidden behind the upper layer, so it can almost be ignored.

 

I hope that helps.

Hi Gear maker, 

 

Thank you for answering so quickly. Sorry to sound a bit daft but I really am a total newbie, could you explain your answer a little more as I don't quite understand.

 

Thanks and sorry

Mark

Ah.... in fact don't worry, I think I just figured it out. Makes sense now, sorry it is a Monday after all! Really appreciate the help with that.
