Creating a 3D shape with the Pen Tool

June 7, 2010

Using your Pen Tool create a simple Vase profile.  Like in the example below.  You can choose whatever color you would like.

Then with the Vase Profile selected go to Effect/3D and use Default Options.

you should get something similar to the image below

This also works great for Text.  However, with Text use the Extrude option.
