I'm drawing some illustrations and want to fill overlapping objects with a paper texture. I have done this using the Transparency window and placing a paper texture image over each object. The problem is that where the objects overlap to create the whole picture, they are quite transparent and so you get the effect of layers of tissue paper. I want each object to look completely opaque, but despite opacity being set to 100% on each object, they don't.
Is there a way to solve this?
I've tried filling the objects with lighter / darker paper texture images and tweaking the Transparency settings to Darker / Ligher / Soft or hard light, etc.
Opacity masks (whcih is what I assume you are using) use black to hide white to show. Depending upon your document color mode that black can vary. For a CMYK document black means 100C 100M 100Y and 100k. For RGB black means 0R 0G 0B. Anything other than these numbers will product a translucent or transparent area.
I assume your paper images are color images? This would mean it's unlikely that any area of the image has a solid 100% build of all teh colors and therefore no area would truly be opaque.
You will need to alter your paper images so that areas you want opaque use the values above.
