I'm trying to add texture to the path (squiggle) like the two Cs. When I try, it shows up like the second image. 
So I saved just the squiggle as an image and uploaded it separately. When I try to do a clipping mask like I do for font, it doesn't work. Is there any way to add texture to the squiggle?!Screen Shot 2023-01-07 at 3.15.17 PM.pngScreen Shot 2023-01-07 at 3.17.27 PM.pngScreen Shot 2023-01-07 at 3.18.30 PM.png

KW BD,

 

First Object>Path>Outline Stroke, then apply it as the clipping path for the clipping mask/set.

 

 

Edit: Hi Ton. We have had rain for a while here too.

For my part you are welcome, KW BD; Ton said it a few minutes before I did.

 

The reason for the need of outlining is that only the actual (spine of the) path can act as a clipping path.

 

 

It is possible to obtain the same appearance with the original stroked path if you use it for an Opacity Mask (through the Transparency panel) with both Clip and Invert Mask ticked (remember to select both the path and the textured object as with the clipping set).

 

In that way you can freely change the Stroke Weight and the shape of the (spine of the) path afterwards to adjust the appearance after the mak is made.
