Copy link to clipboard
does anyone know how to create an object that goes through something? i'm trying to create a keyring with keys. i've created the key but i want to make it go though a key ring like the picture
1) Copy the key(s and Pathfinder>Unite), then reduce the path to the part that i to be in front of the keyring, then switch to a black fill and no stroke;
2) Arrange the objects so that the black path from 1) is at the top, the keyring in the middle, and the key(s) at the bottom of the stacking order (see the expanded Layer in the Layers palette);
3) Select both the black path and the keyring and in the Transparency palette (flyout) tick Make (Opacity) Mask with both Clip and Invert Mask unticked (in the main Transparency window).
This will hide the part of the keyring to (appear to) go beind the key(s).
Here's an alternate method using clipping mask instead of transparency:
