I apologize in advance for failing to ask my question articulately. I'm pretty new to illustrator and following a tutorial where he/she at one point changes the colors of the outline of the mug seen here -->
For me, I have all these anchor points and guidelines and however I try to change the color of just the path, I either end up changing nothing or filling my objects. Is this because I expanded my ellipses?
Here's what my line looks -->
Hopefully one of you can translate what I just said into something meaningful.
