I even tried adding a \path [clip] through an extra parameter, but then nothing shows up after that first clip.

Yes, I tried that, but apparently the clipping doesn't hold outside of the command. Could you add an example?

Also, with your solution I'm able to name the node, cool! Extra question: How do I use the named nodes to clip a few ellipses and fill their intersection?

Nice! I had a version with the constant multiplier working as well. I did not know how to to use 'let', I like your solution. I ended up incorporating options in my solution with optional parameters. Thanks!
