I used the blob brush to paint me this cool graffiti text and now I am wondering how can I join those paths into just one. I only want one component, not one that consists of many brush strokes.
Also when try to fill some areas black with the Live paint bucket it shows those little lines that don't get the black color when using for example red background color.
What should/can I do to fix my problems?
Thank yall for help <3!
To join those shapes, just use Pathfinder > Unite (from the Pathfinder panel)
The thin white lines might just be artifacts from rendering 100K in CMYK color mode. How will you reproduce and use the drawing?
Select the brush strokes and from the Object menu choose Expand appearance. Then do as Monika suggested.
It's already a live paint group.
So is there anyting I can do to get rid of those overlapping parts?
Please show the outline view. The blob brush can automatically unite strokes if set up that way.
I checked the outline view and it looks like that in some spots it has automatically done its job.

You need to unite them before creating the live paint group.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
I have used Illustrator so little that even these types of easy tasks give me headache. But now I released the Live paint group and all works for now.
Much love ❤️
