  2. Create a copy of the square and change the colour to white, make enough space between them for another 9
  3. Select both squares and open the ‘Object’ menu, go to ‘Blend’ and then select ‘Blend Option’;A_3
  4. In the ‘Spacing’ section chose ‘Specified Steps’ and inset ‘9’ as number of steps and click ‘OK’;A_4
  5. While squares are still selected go to ‘Object’ menu again and select ‘Make’ from ‘Blend’; andA_5_1A_5_2
  6. Expand the artwork and ungroup the objects to access each tint individually.A_6_1A_6_2A_6_3A_6_4
