Note: If we were to continue drawing other items, we’d find that the effect below would follow. To stop the effect replicating itself onto
other shapes, click on the arrow and select Reduce to Basic Appearance. You can also create a basic appearance piece and use the
Eyedropper tool and click on the effect text to replicate it onto the piece and then turn around, select individual stroke layers and change
their appearance and transparency as in the sample below the text shows.
