I'm new to Blender, and I started with the donut tutorial. It was indeed quite easy until I got to the "texture paint" part.

I went on a lot of topics and tutorials to try to figure out what went wrong with what I did, but I never found out. Only, I guess, there is a lot of ways that things can go wrong.

Absolutely nothing happens when I try to paint nor on the left or the right side.

  • $\begingroup$ Your brush uses a texture but the texture is not set and empty. So the brush does not work. Remove the texture to fix it. Click the X $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


Your brush is using an empty Texture.

This is easy to fix:

Go to the panel on the right where all the brush settings are displayed.


Scroll down to the Texture option and open it up.


Click the X next to Texture.


That should do it!
