Again, turn on the lighting and gradient options.

Go ahead and choose an edge type, and give the edge a color.

Okay, now click on the light tool.

You'll notice you've already got one light.

To add another light, right click on the Canvas Window and choose Add Light.

Click on the light to make it active. 

Then right click on it and choose Light Type - Spot light from the contextual menu.
