Hello. Shading model question

Hello everyone, i just started using blender for fun stuff. Ive been through the snowman scene and the vase tutorial. I have a question, When i make a vase model, And make a plain below it, When i select the plain below the vase only and add a color to it. the whole thing turns that color. the vase and all. even though i only selected the vase. Ive tried in edit/object mode both. Any ideas here as to why its shading both models even though i have 1 selected? BY the way im a complete noob so if your awnser is complicated i won’t get it. Thanks

mgs251,

I think you have the same material applied to both objects. Color in this case is unique to the material, and so any object that uses that material will have the same color.

Best of Luck!
