I want to apply a brush splash to the central petals of the flower. But clipping mask doesn't work. It says object is too complex. The only way I found to resolve this problem is using shape builder tool and cut every single petal in order to avoid outlines overlapping. Then make a copy of petals with fill and place a brush splash between outlines and fill layer. I wonder is there any less time consuming solution ? The main problem is outlines, they overlapping each other without a fill. Opacity mask doesn't adress my problem, because I don't want the outlines to be covered by a brush splash. The brush splash have to be inside of each petal. Thank you ! enter image description here

  • I realize the duplicate link may not seem like a duplicate. However, you need an Opacity Mask, not a clipping mask. and the duplicate explains how to create an opacity mask in Illustrator. So, while technically not a duplicate, it will solve your problem.

  • It didn't help or i did something wrong . I need a splash to be placed UNDER the outlines, it shouldn't cover outlines. But opacity mask placing it on the top of everything. Please see the screenshot updated in the first post. And I need to be able to change the colour of the splash

  • Okay reopened. I still feel an opacity mask is warranted, but you may need to configure the artwork for the mask to work as you desire.

    or you could set the layer structure so the keyline (black) is above other objects.
