How to make a stroke that is separated from its object?
I want to make a stroke to be a little bit further than the object itself, so between object and stroke there will be a transparency.
By default, the stroke is touching the object. How can I achieve a stroke that is distant from the object in Illustrator?
Select your strokeless shape and seek out your
Appearance panel. In there, you'll find the option to
Add a new stroke, either in the options, or using the button:
- Add a new stroke by choosing either option
- Once you've added the new stroke, select it in the panel.
Effect > Path > Offset pathand choose a positive value.
