Drawing Outside the Lines ... Just a Little

Creating wet edge effects in Macromedia Freehand MX
4. Now we'll add a new fill. This time I'm going to make it a tiled fill, one that I've created using a basic canvas texture, which I then traced to create a vector object within Freehand. The texture isn't necessary, but it does help to add some depth to the final effect. When you initially apply this new fill, you won't be able to see it. So, in the Object panel, manually drag it up to the top of the stacking order, just underneath the Group.

5. Now, with this tiled fill selected in the Object panel, apply another Sketch effect. This time you can leave the values at default.

6. Then select the Group in your Object panel, and apply another fill. Make it a Basic fill, and choose the color that will be your paint color. In my case, this will be red.

7. To this, add another Sketch effect, setting the Copies to 4 and the Amount to 15.

8. Then add the effect Basic Transparency (Add Effect > Transparency > Basic Transparency). Set the value to 30.
