1:Describe two methods for creating a mesh.
A1: To create a mesh, you select the mesh tool and click an object; or you can select the object first, choose Object > Create Gradient Mesh, and specify the number of mesh lines and highlighting in the Create Gradient Mesh dialog box. Another way to create a mesh is to select a gradient-filled object, choose Object > Expand, and select the Mesh option in the Expand dialog box to expand the gradient.
2:How do you change a color on the mesh?
A2: To change a color on the mesh, use the direct-selection tool or the mesh tool to select the mesh point for the color, and then select a different color.
3:How do you add a mesh point to a mesh object? How do you add the mesh point without adding a color?
A3: To add a mesh point to a mesh object, click in a mesh patch or on a mesh line segment with the mesh tool. (You can also add anchor points to mesh lines using the add-anchor-point tool.) To add the mesh point without adding a color, hold down Shift as you click.
