    $\begingroup$ Selecting a material from the Material Slot list doesn't actually apply it to faces $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jul 17 '17 at 19:30
  • $\begingroup$ @DuarteFarrajotaRamos Don't see how it's a duplicate. This is about 1 material, not about multiple materials. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Jul 17 '17 at 19:34
  • $\begingroup$ The procedure is the same... the material has to be assigned. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jul 17 '17 at 19:44

    $\begingroup$ @RayMairlot I understand it is not the same thing, but the OP is clearly confused what materials slots are and how materials are applied, and that answer explains both, and hopefully provides some insight on the proper workflow $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jul 18 '17 at 0:00

Having a material as part of the list of materials for an object does not mean that it is applied to it.

In edit mode, select the material you want to use, then select the faces where you want the material to be and press Assign
