Select the large red shape behind the neon letters and
in the Change Size Of Feather Region box (to the right
of the gallery buttons), drag the Feather slider to about
25 pixels in this example.
The final touch gives
a little dimension to
the neon. It probably
isn't photorealistic
but rather a very nice
illustrative touch. With
the Shadow Tool, drag
down and to the right on
the neon blend objects.
As you can see in
Figure 6-2, the shadow
lifts the tubing up and
accentuates the contrast
between the tubing and
the glow it produces.
F IGURE 6-2 Create neon, argon,
and other gaseous sources of
illumination by using the Blend
Tool trick.
