    Very simple questions about brushes

      I have a couple of Illustrator questions that are driving me crazy. I'm sure there is a very simple answeer for these.

       

      1. When I draw a stroked path and then apply a textured charcoal brush effect to it, how do I colour it? It keeps giving me tint/shades or black options - not the specific full hue of what I'm trying to apply. Even when I tell it to use "None" in the colourization method...

       

      This is driving me crazy! But simple I'm sure of it.

       

      2. How do I adjust the tapering of a "tapered" brush stroke?

       

      3. How do I adjust the amount of texturing to the charcoal brushes?

       

       

      Thanks a million!

       

       

      Cheers,
