    Why can't I use the mesh tool? - brand new illustrator user

    wilsonlaura Level 1

      I am trying to learn to use illustrator - I've been watching the online videos - which are very helpful, but there aren't any that I can find for the mesh tool.  I want to add some shading to the body of this acrobat but every time I try to use the mesh tool I get the not available symbol.  I can't figure out why or how to change it.  I started from a scanned drawing, did a live trace, and converted to live paint to fill in colors.  What should I do now to enable the mesh tool?  Please help!
