I have a weird issue I can't quite figure out. I was able to texture the handle, no issue, but I didn't notice until I started texturing the blade that I think my UVs were off. So I went back and "re-seamed" the full knife. Now all the islands are in place and not overlapping (as they were).
Now, however, as I try to paint the handle again, the texture is painting on very dark. Is there something I should have reset when I unwrapped the UV for a second time?
I tried creating a new knife and handle in a different project, appended them to this one (since this is where the bulk of my work is. I have "unlinked data block" in the left window with the UV islands.
I have "unlinked the data block" in the texture slot" for the handle. Handle turns purple to confirm no texture attached.
I "unlocked the data block" for the texture image in the texture panel.
I have created a new image in the left window.
Now when I try to attach the knife image in the context area, I no longer have "texture" or even "brush" options. Kinda going insane here :O
Thank you a ton in advance!
