    Colouring in text with pencil tool

    DVDdisk

      I am using a typeface in which the glyphs are not totally solid, and the background colour shows through. I have tried to hand colour these, using a new layer, but all I get is a bunch of points and wriggly lines - in black (and I am drawing in white).

       

      After that didn't work I tried exporting to PhotoShop where I could colour in easily - but the text had to be rasterised and now is very pixellated. This happened even when I used a new layer for the painting and then merged the two layers so it could be replaced in InDesign.

       

      Is there any way to simply fill in the dots with a tool of some sort?

       

      Any help gratefully received.
