    how do you create a engraved effect in illustrator cs4?


      say for example, i want to make a metal object look like it has text engraved/chisled into it. what is the fastest (but most realistic) way of getting this effect without drawing all of the secondary 3d looking paths by hand based on copies of the flattened text? or am i missing something somewhere?


      I wish negative values were available in the extrude depth (extrude & bevel)


      any ideas?
