A Guide to Stickers and Textures in Paint 3D


This icon opens our Stickers tab. Stickers are one of the revolutionary ways we are
making it easy to texture 3D models. Within the Stickers panel you will find 3 tabs. This tab contains a variety of fun pre-made
decals that will work exactly like a sticker. Tap anywhere to create your selected sticker.
Stickers can be applied on the canvas or wrapped
onto 3D models. Whilst your sticker has a bounding box, it can be
repositioned, rescaled or rotated. On the side of the bounding box is a stamp icon –
you can use this to apply multiple versions of
the sticker across your creations. If you have finished with your sticker you can
apply a single version by pressing the tick icon. Whenever you’re manipulating a sticker – you will
see additional options in the side panel. These include sticker opacity – which alters the
transparency of the sticker. Or material options which change the reflectivity
and shine of a sticker when being applied to a 3D
model. If you decide not to apply a sticker then simply
drag it off into an empty space or press the
escape key. You also have the option to ‘Make 3D’, which
transforms the sticker to a flat layer in 3D
space. In this tab you will find textures. These are stickers that specially designed to
give material texture to your models. They have a soft edge which makes them perfect
for layering and overlapping. If you cant find what you’re after, then there is
a tab is for custom stickers. Click the button to
add a new sticker from your computer. You can use any image or photo as a sticker. Try
searching for textures online or take photos of
textures that you find interesting. You can also turn images in your scene into
stickers. Try using Magic Select to pop out part of your
image and then hit Make Sticker to use it on a
model. Anything that you turn into a sticker will be
added into your custom sticker collection to use
again later in the session. To learn more ways to texture your 3D models,
check out the Brushes guide.
