I am confused on how to manipulate the Material properties.
Let’s say that I just want to change the color of a portion of an object. I understand that I am supposed to hit Properties, and then Material. So far, so good.
But then what, please?
I get a drop-down menu giving me the choice of Use Layer Material, which doesn’t lead to anything; Use Object Parent, which again doesn’t lead to anything; or Default Material. If I click on that, then the choices are Custom, Gem, Glass, Metal, Paint, Picture, Plaster, Plastic. So I will choose one of those, and then I hit the color area. I can click on that and change the color.
But then, how do I get that color to show up on my object?
Thank you very much.
