Default Sheening effect in CorelDraw?

Hi, Does anyone know how to create a background with a touch of sheen to it in CorelDraw 12? Do I need additional software to achieve such an effect?


I've created a business card; half of the background is designed in copper, which I'd like to add some sheen to it.



Thanks in advance.

Google this:

tutorial gary priester

A lot of his recent stuff's on Xara but some of it may apply; he's done some on Draw as well.

Check the tutorials here too:

Steve, Thanks for your reply. I've just realized that CorelDRAW 12 includes Corel PHOTO-PAINT 12, which I should be able to create sheening objects. I am learning how to make objects with gradient overlay and etc.

Either one will create metallic or similar effects; if you prefer to work with PhotoPaint, you'll still want to look around the Unleashed site for tutorials. Then google "tom anzai" ... the guy's a wizard with Photo Paint
