 Using Transparency in Illustrator

    In Illustrator, the opacity of any type of object can be changed at any
     time.

    This is done by using the Transparency panel.
+
 Blend Modes

    Blend Modes can also be applied via the Transparency Palette.

    Blending modes let you vary the ways that colours of objects blend
     with the colours of objects below them in the stacking order.

    When working with blend modes, remember these tips:
        The blend colour is the original colour of the selected object.
        The base colour is the underlying colour in the artwork.
        The resulting colour is the colour resulting from the blend.
+
 Knockout Group

    The Knockout Group option on the Transparency palette controls
     whether or not objects nested in a group or layer will show through
     each other where they overlap.

    It affects objects within the currently targeted group or layer.
+
 Transparency Grid

    When working with Transparent objects, you may wish to display the
     Transparency Grid.

    Edit the grid by choosing File > Document Setup, Transparency.

    Turn the Grid on by choosing View > Show Transparency Grid.

 Opacity Masks

    To create an Opacity Mask, place the object you wish to be masked

     both and choose “Make Opacity Mask” from the Transparency panel.
