This question already has an answer here:

I've unlinked all object data, materials and textures. The texture is assigned and visible when I'm in Object mode and Edit mode. But when I switch over to Texture paint mode, I can't see the texture that I want and I have to start from scratch. Thanks for any help you can give me!

  • $\begingroup$ Do things change if you press Alt+Z while in Texture Paint mode ? $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Feb 17 '16 at 16:22
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, the original object loses it's texture, but the duplicate stays the same. $\endgroup$ – Coolnumber Feb 17 '16 at 16:24
  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean "the same" that duplicate (as I understand the black one on the second image) remains being black ? $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Feb 17 '16 at 16:29
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, that's right. $\endgroup$ – Coolnumber Feb 17 '16 at 16:34
