Thanks guys for helping me find the Paint bucket tool.
All I have is a simple cartoon face that I have drawn, scanned and brought over and using Live Paint.
I can get the paint to fill the face area, but it won't let me do one of the ears. It gives me an X on the bottom of the paint bucket.
What can I do to get that X to go away and let me fill that ear with a colour?
Select the repsective object, convert it to a Live Paint group first from the Object menu. If that option is not available, you may need to expand the object first and release any clipping masks or nested compound paths.
