material help (one taking attribute of other)

I’ve done this before but after a long absence the solution seems to be escaping me.

I’m trying to make a simple cork bulletin board. I’ve got the board with a frame around it. I’ve assigned a different material to each. My problem is that whenever I try to apply an image to one material the other picks it up as well. I can get them to show different colors though.

am I missing something?

hi, sounds to me that although you have added a new material, you are sharing the same texture. On the texture button (f6) add a new texture in the same way you add new materials (for example by clicking the up/down arrows next to TE:cloud see pic below).

Aye, I knew it was something simple. Thank you very much :smiley:
