I am desperately trying to make a spiral (see picture below) narrowing out at the end. The line should be thick at the beginning and become very thin at the end. It should be a very smooth transition. I tried brushes, which works well but it does unfortunately NOT work with a gradient. And I need to apply a gradient on my object. The width tool does not work as well (see pictures below), as it seems to work only between anchor points (although I have joined the pathes...). How can I reach my goal to have a tapered spiral with a gradient applied on it?
Many thanks for your much appreciated comments.
Best regards, Silvan
