Create a Mosaic Text Effect

By Discovery Center Team

The mosaic text effect in CorelDRAW lets you use other text or symbols as a fill when creating a unique and eye catching title. Use mosaic text to create a professional looking poster or use it for birthday cards, letterheads, and even watermarks. This simple text effect gives you one more tool at your side when creating the perfect look on your design project.

You will learn how to use:

  • The Text Tool.
  • The Fountain Fill tool.
  • The PowerClip tool.
