enter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description hereenter image description hereGreeting to all, I have completed my donut with blender guru tutorial and it was looking great and I saved it but when I opened my saved donut file today its looking like this . I do not know why but the sprinkles seems to be somehow added inside the donut bun and it is not applying shading nodes properly nor the texture paint. please help I believe the problem is somewhere here I guess? In the highlighted part this is what it shows in texture paint As you can see clearly in this shading view image that how the sprinkles are indulged in the donut bun.

You are using an image called donut texture in an Image Texture node of your material. Open the Image Editor and look what is this image, it's nothing else than a render of your donut, so you're just projecting an image of your donut on your donut. You need to use another image (or paint over this image):

  • $\begingroup$ once you've switched to Texture Paint mode, make sure that you have a bit of Strength (top header menu or in the N panel > Brush Settings > Strength) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It's a bit hard to explain through Blender Stack Exchange, maybe follow some tutorials, example: youtube.com/watch?v=u9nE2Xg6Jgk $\endgroup$
