The Mix material mixes any two material types, including other Mix materialsUsed to mix any two material types.. It accepts any two MaterialThe representation of the surface or volume properties of an object. nodes as inputs, and you control the mix amount by a value, color, or texture. In the following example, the Mix material mixes a red GlossyThe measure of how well light is reflected from a surface in the specular direction, the amount and way in which the light is spread around the specular direction, and the change in specular reflection as the specular angle changes. Used for shiny materials such as plastics or metals. material together with a SpecularAmount of specular reflection, or the mirror-like reflection of light photons at the same angle. Used for transparent materials such as glass and water. material using a Checks texture as the Mix Amount (Figure 1).
