Hi Adobe Community

I am trying to add some shine to the lettering on my logo. I used the Rectangle Tool to create the shape of the shine and reduced its opacity to produce a glossy effect. However, as can be seen by the screenshot, there is excess shine [circled in red] affecting everything in the background. I would like to remove it from my logo, but I do not know how, except by imprecisely and painstakingly using the Eraser Tool. Any suggestions on how to remove it? Maybe by creating a mask? Also, a side note: the logo is a single layer comprising objects (not sublayers), and the shine is a separate layer.

 

Thanks and best regards

 

Alex

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Illustrator forum so that proper help can be offered.

Alex,

 

As I (mis)understand it, you can use Draw Inside, or copy the (black part of the) Chamelion Concealment bit on top of the rectangle and make a Clipping Mask.
