Paint on 3D objects | Learning Microsoft Paint 3D from LinkedIn Learning


– [Instructor] There are
many times when we’ll need to add additional color and
texture to our 3D objects. And for that we can use our art tools to paint on a 3D object. So let’s go ahead and get started. We’re going to go into our 3D menu and let’s go ahead and draw a simple dog. So then we go ahead and left click and drag and drag out the dog. Now this dog comes in, in
this case as a gray object. But let’s say we wanted
to change his color, we can do that using the art tools. So I’m going to select my art tools and let’s go ahead and
just flood fill the dog. So I’m going to select my
paint tool, my fill tool and let’s go ahead and
select a color of brown. Now for this to work, I
have to hover my cursor over the dog. If I were to fill this, I would
fill the background canvas, but I want to actually
fill the dog itself. So I’m going to go ahead
and hover over the dog and left click to fill. Now whenever you use an art tool, you will get this little tumble icon and this allows you to move
the dog however you want and then when you’re done,
you can hit this little X and what happens is it snaps back to the original position. So this is a great way to kind of tweak the positioning of your
model while you paint without actually destroying
where the object is in space. Now we can change tools
say to the marker tool and paint details on the dog. Now if I wanted to paint
something like the nose, I might not be able to work with it in this orientation so again, I can just tumble that around and then paint a little bit of a nose on the dog. And I can certainly use
my fill tool to fill that and if I wanted to I
could use my marker tool to for example paint some
simple eyes on the dog. And if I wanted to, I
could choose another color, maybe reduce my thickness a little bit and put a highlight on the nose. Now if we wanted to we could
use other tools as well, but I’m going to go ahead
and click out of this and as you can see, it snaps back. Now another way to work is
to actually select the object so I’m going to go to my select tool here and then just rotate with snapping. Now notice when I go to the bottom here how it snaps and then sometimes that makes it easier to paint. So I’m going to look at
the bottom of this dog, and let’s go ahead and paint
his belly a white color. So I’m going to go ahead and
maybe select my watercolor, turn up my opacity a
bit to about 90 or so, and let’s go ahead and start painting. So what I could now is
just paint the belly of this dog the color that I want. And if I want I can still tumble. If I want to I can paint the tail. Let’s say he wants a
white tip on the tail. Now notice when I paint
it using the brush, how if I flip this
around, it doesn’t show up on the other side. So if you’re using the brush tools, you will need to paint
all of the surfaces. So you want to make sure
that you get all of that. And there we go. So now that I’ve got this
back in the orientation, I can use my select tool
and then just rotate him back the way I want. And as you can see, if
I go into view in 3D, you can see that now we have a dog with a white belly and a white tail. So these are very simple
ways to create texture and color on 3D objects.
