In this movie, I'm going to show you how to make a mock lace brush.…I call it mock lace, because it's sort of a place holder lace that I use when I…haven't sourced the lace for a garment yet.…It's really fast, and a lot of fun to do. I use Type.…I'll grab my Type Tool, and start by typing in a letter, usually a lower case…g, or y. They seem to work out nicely, because they tend to have a lot of…little curls to them.…And for this particular one, I'm going to go with this font here, it's…Baskerville Old Face.…So, let's zoom in and take a closer look.…The first thing we need to do is turn the font into an object.…
So, if we go up to Type, and select Create Outlines, now it's a shape, and not a font anymore.…I'll rotate it just a little bit and then reflect it, double-click on Reflect,…Vertical, and select Copy.…And now I have an interesting little shape that I can play around with by…nudging one of the pieces over with my nudge arrow on the keyboard until I'm…happy with the shape I have, and I think that looks pretty interesting.…
