First, clone the two rectangles indicated above (Ctrl k). This increases the light and dark and adds more depth. Select the top inside rectangle with the Transparency Tool. Click and drag downward as indicated by the fill path arrow in the center. The end of the transparency should be 100% on the Transparency slider on the Infobar. Hold down the Alt key and click twice on the darker inside rectangle to select the original rectangle. Switch to the Photo Tool (P). Change the Photo Brightness setting to -80. This makes the inside rectangle (the back of the pendulum box) darker, but a bit lighter at the bottom. Select the pendulum shaft rectangle and apply a Linear fill using 80% Black and Black. Start and end the fill a little bit short of each side as shown in the enlargement. Zoom in close to the question mark hook shape (press 3 on the keyboard to zoom in 300%). Select the shape and from the Arrange menu, select Convert Line to Shape. Select the Shape Editor Tool (F4). Select the bottom control point and delete it. Apply a Flat fill to the top of the weight and the hook shape. Use the Color Editor > RGB Color Model  to edit the color. Clone the hook shape and change the fill to the lighter brass color. Apply a small amount of feathering using the Adjust Size of Feather Region slider on the top right area of the Infobar. Just enough to soften the edges. Move the feathered shape up and left a smidgen. NOTE: If your RGB values in the Color Editor are shown in percent (%) instead of 0-255, right click on the page, select Page Options... > Units and change the Color Units to 0-255. Select the large circle with the Fill Tool (F5). From the drop down list of Fill Types on the Infobar select Circular. Drag the center of the fill up to the top 1/3 of the circle. Double click on the fill path arrow to add a new color. Double click again to add a second color. Move these two colors down towards the bottom and arrange them close together. Apply the four colors shown (click on any of the small squares with the Fill Tool to select and edit that color). 2010 Gary W. Priester 2010 Gary W. Priester DOWNLOAD ZIPPED TUTORIAL
