The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

How I did it - Dancer
« on: February 05, 2012, 02:28:41 PM »
In response to Carolyn's suggestion that we create little challenges to encourage broadening our knowledge of Inkscape I created this uncolored, unadorned file to practice with filters and patterns.

It is not a detailed step by step just the technoque I used to get the effects you see. There are tutorials in the Tutorial section on how to do clip/set.  The filter that makes the shadowing is from here along with a little tut.

TIP: it has been my experience that you cannot always remove a filter once applied.  I recommend that  you save your play file under a different name to preserve the original just in case you don't get it right the first time  :)


My finished project looks like this.

Nope PapaSue had some nice cooler pattern myself and just couldn't get it to fit the design, and yes I was looking at the tuts as well. Going to do the bit I know how to do.....May try later....
