Colorize Hair

Hey folks,

I’m pretty new at Blender and for now I’m just trying some things and working on some crappy scenes, so nothing special. Currently I’m working on a small plane which has some grass on it. So far I “modeled” the plane with a bit fractal stuff on it and added some Hair with a particle system. I colorized the plane with a material to a dark brown color and the grass got dark too. When I hit the little + beside the Material name and give it a lighter color, the grass changes dark but the plane gets brighter. How can I like switch those to properties, so that the grass changes it’s color and the plane stays at it is?

Greets,

in the particle settings of the hair, go to the render tab and set the material index to 1, next add a new material to you plane, and make it the grass material.

Gotcha, thanks
