I am trying to use the Texture Paint feature in Blender, but for some reason, the Clouds texture has black where there should not be color painted. How do I fix this?

Weird black clouds

I see 2 problems. I believe you are following Blender Guru's doughnut tutorial. That was the first one I followed as well.

  1. Make sure to use a "Texture Mask"

  2. In the drop-down titled "Brush", choose "Brush Mask - Texture"enter image description here

After these adjustments your brush should match Blender Guru's brush.

EDIT: Here is a screenshot of most of my screen: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Also in your screenshot I see you have used a very high strength. For better quality in sculpting and texture painting, usually using a smaller strength is much better. $\endgroup$ Jun 29, 2020 at 5:09
