    I do have a shop,
    I am building it up slowly. I am in the process of photographing my finished models for the shop. I would like to limit some pieces to certain materials. I am not clear on how to control my preferences. When I tried I lost the options to use the materials I wanted to use. Any advice or direction on where to look is appreciated.

  2. On your product page, at the right-hand side, near the bottom, you should find a drop-down menu which allows you to select all the materials you DON'T want your model to be available in. You just select them one by one till all the ones you want have been restricted. If there aren't many materials you want available, you can opt to select all of them in one click, and just deselect the ones you do want to sell.

    At no point is it set in stone, so if there's a material you realise you've made unavailable that you want to use, then you can just click the trash can next to the name and it'll be back on the usable list.

    Hope that makes sense.

    your explanation helps, I guess I just need to get used to it.
