How do I paint a texture onto an already textured object? How do I do that? I have human with a skin texture and I want to paint a lip texture on his lips.

  • $\begingroup$ Ill paint a texture onto the toenail of my person, then itll show up on the face, I erase it off the face and its gone from the toenails. $\endgroup$ Sep 6 '15 at 0:27
  • $\begingroup$ Sounds like UV overlapping. The toenail and face occupies the same UV space. Go into edit mode. Select all faces. In the menu to the right of the help menu at the top, select UV editing. Hit U and select "Smart UV project". No more overlapping. Now paint your toenail again. $\endgroup$

Repeated Image Mapping

The slot named Textures near the cursor in the Tool Tab is relative to the Brush

enter image description here

The slot in where you can choose which is the acticve texture to paint onto can be found in the Slot Tab in the Slot panel. The active texture is the one highlited with blue color.

enter image description here

As you can see on the right you are probably painting a texture with a brush that paint other textures, maybe sometime the same, and may be one of the causes you have repeating features spreading all around.

But the main cause of that relies on the Repeating settings of your Skin texture.

enter image description here

Those values alter how the texture is placed and sized on the UV space. You must set them to 1 an 1 to get the UV unwrapped island to stay in place.

If you want to paint just plain colors, remove Brush Texture by hitting the X button. If you want to paint texture from an image, be sure to use diffrent textures.

  • $\begingroup$ Remove the Brush Texture, check on which slot you are painting on and than you should be ready to paint. $\endgroup$
