Correct Usage of Product Variants

I am learning OpenERP and I woul dlike a clarification on the Product Variant feature. I have downloaded Version 8. 

Let me first explain what I understand by product variants.

Product - "Men's Shorts.

This product can have two attributes IE

Size - XL & XXL

Color - Red & Blue

As a result the Product shorts should have a possible four variants as follows

Men's Shorts - XL, Blue

Men's Shorts - XL, Red

Men's Shorts - XLL, Blue

Men's Shorts - XLL, Red

I find that it is not possible for me to replicate this scenario. I have created the attributes (Sales->Configuration->Products Attributes & Colors->Attributes)  Size & Color. When I go to the variants tab in products and enter I am able to make only a single variant of the Product Men's Shorts - defeating the purpose of variants.

I hope I have been able to express my question clearly. 

Am I missing out on something?

What are product multi variants? 

How can I replicate the above mentioned example by adding a single product and adding multiple colors & sizes and creating product variants without having to create unique product names based on Product & Color & size

Thanks a ton in advance. Any help would be appreciated.

Create variants is a bit confusing. When you go to the variants tab in products and enter, you select first variant, stay in this field (Product Attribute Value) and start typing the name of the second, and durning typing, select it. This field is the type of tags, which you can select multiple. You can attribute values, in this field, typing as a new (create).
