How to make an object sharing a material have it's OWN instance of that material?

I have two objects I want to have the same exact material visually, but in Blender space, I need them to have their own instance OF that material.

I have done things in past, can’t remember how…can somebody refresh me?

thanks!

in the material tab for one of the objects there should be a number (if there are two objects sharing the same it will be two). Click on it and it will make it another instance but with the same settings. Just have to remember if you change it on one it will no longer effect the other. :slight_smile:
