I am working in Illustrator with this clipart, and part of the hand is a clipping mask I cannot seem to turn into a "normal" shape:
When I release the Clipping Mask, I get:
This is what the Layers Panel looks like, the Clipping Mask gives the shape its form and then cuts through a skin-toned square":
I tried following this answer, but it didn't work. None of the Pathfinder or Expand actions produce the desired result.
The file is here.
How do I turn this element into a "normal" shape?
