a mesh connected to another mesh conflict help please...

whys is this happening? the i connected a hand mesh to my torso mesh but why does the hand mesh didnt have the same material as the parent mesh i connected to… sorry for my poor english…

When you join objects, the faces keep their original material settings. Just delete the material slot for the hand material or just apply the pink material to the faces of the hand.

many thanks sir… =) your always of help… i will try it later hope it works for me by the way i use blender 2.53beta
