Method 2: Using Toolbar
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to use "Pucker Tool" and "Bloat Tool" in Adobe Illustrator CS6 in Windows 7.
- 7You can alter the "Fill" color.For more information, refer to our tutorial on how to use "Stroke" and "Fill" colors.
- 11Click and drag the "Width Tool" to the right.It's in the vertical toolbar. The icon is about halfway down. It looks somewhat like a strange compass. Select "Pucker Tool" from the expanded menu. The cursor has changed to a circle with a cross in the center. The size of the circle indicates the size of the pucker effect.
- 16Use the "Bloat Tool" in the same way as the "Pucker Tool".This is, by clicking and dragging the object. The effect will be different depending on the size and style of your brush. With the type of brush in the tutorial, you can get more of a cloud or flower effect. Other types of brushes, such as a charcoal-type brush, may give you a more realistic effect.
- 17As with any brush, you can change the size, style, and opacity in the horizontal menu across the top.Brush settings will affect the appearance of "Bloat Tool" or "Pucker Tool" effects. Also, keep in mind that these effects create new anchor points on your shape. Anchor points can be identified by the blue dots on the outline of your object.
- 18Wherever you click, you create a new anchor point that can be manipulated further by dragging.It's recommended to experiment with these tools and their settings, as they're very useful for creating dynamic shapes quickly.Advertisement
