I am trying to apply a texture to to my model, but it isn't working and I don't know what I am doing wrong.

I UV Mapped the model and colored my texture to fit to the model. When I am in Texture Paint mode the model looks fine, but when I switch to Object Mode the model becomes white, and I can't figure out why...

Here is Texture Paint Mode:

Texture Paint

Here is Object Mode:

Object Mode

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Textures aren't displayed in Solid view by default. You can either switch to a higher level shading view which displays textures, such as textured view (⎇ AltZ). Or you can enable Textured solid in 3D view > Properties region (N) > Shading:

enter image description here

Note that this doesn't affect the final render, only the viewport.

See the wiki for more information.

  • $\begingroup$ @RyanNaddy If you've assigned it as a texture in the texture panel then it should work. (It looks to me like you have, as it seems to be appearing in the render preview in the materials panel) $\endgroup$
