…If you want to go beyond the materials that…come with SketchUp, you can certainly edit those existing materials.…So we can still do that in the materials editor.…So let's go into Window>Materials, and let's go…ahead and just look at what's in my model.…We can do that by hitting the home key here.…Or by scrolling into this window and just going In Model.…And these are the textures I have in my model.…So if I want, I can highlight these,…or if I want, I can eyedropper to select them.…So let's say I wanted to play with the walls of the house.…
All I have to do is eyedropper that, and…we'll see, in this model, it's called Color Each Ten.…Now, if I want, I can edit that material, so I…go to the Edit tab, and I can make changes to it.…Now, the first thing I can do, is I can select the color.…We have a color picker here, we can do a color wheel.…HLS,…HSB, this maybe a little bit different on OS X.…And so we've got a number of different color pickers.…I'm going to go to HSB here, and all we have to do…is just dial in the new color or the new base color here.…
