I duplicated an object, but now when I try to adjust the color, or texture to one object, it automatically adjusts it's sister's color too. How do I disconnected that relation?

  • $\begingroup$ I went into Data properties, and there was no small number button next to the data name as the link above states. Only the letter F. How do I make it a "data single-user."...? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ This is related to blender's concept of Datablocks blender.org/manual/data_system/datablocks.html . Datablocks (such as meshes, materials, and animations) can be shared by multiple users. Object datablocks can be shared by multiple scenes. $\endgroup$

Go to the materials tab, and click on the number that appears next to the material's name. This will make it a single user, by duplicating the material, basically meaning that they can be edited separately.
