Just figure it out. Need to add RGB BW and do some math rules, but would be glad if someone will present more correct or convenient way of doing that enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Well, what I wanna do is to apply two materials on one object at specific places. Due to tabletop is quite high poly it's gonna be inconvenient to apply them using faces. So I decided I to paint a texture and apply material on places where texture is missing. $\endgroup$
