Teejay's Stained Glass Tutorial - Help, please! :)
« on: October 18, 2021, 10:44:39 AM »
Hello all,

Well, I took some time to try the stained glass tutorial and I seem to be having some issues. :)

I used the pen tool and was able to trace around the inside lines, but when I went to turn off the template, I noticed the outside border wasn't complete.

So, I tried to draw a box around the border and converted it to curves.
I then tried to "ADD" it to the other lines (which I had already added).

What I got was a solid black rectangle.

I'm hoping somebody can offer some help, as I'd really like to see if I can do this. :)

Thanks so much!

Hello tedology,

Did you do "Expand Stroke" on the box before adding it to the lines?

Hi Rege!

You know what? That probably is it. Thanks so much! :)

I feel foolish.
