I'm completely new to blender and have been following CG Boost's beginner tutorials.

I'm at the part where he is painting the knife blade, I already painted the handle of the knife. Unfortunately, when I select the knife blade and then switch from "Object Mode" to "Texture Paint", the UV islands I created for the knife blade don't show up in the left hand paint viewport like they do in the tutorial.

Here's a comparison:

Tutorial Screen

Notice how in the tutorial screenshot that the UV islands appear above the texture paint image in dark gray. What am I doing wrong?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
