How can I paint only in one side of the mesh?

Hi folks! I imported an OBJ with a correct UV in the Zbrush and when I start to paint it on the external part, the Zbrush paints the both sides of the mesh . There is some way to "say" to Zbrush to paint only in the external side (vice-versa) ?

Here is the exemple. This is the shoe that I'm painting on, in this case I have painted only the external part, but the internal part was also affected.

If that mesh has no actual geometry thickness, it can't be helped.

If it has thickness, go to > Brush > Auto Masking > turn on BackFaceMas button

Thumbs up

vincent1 thank you very much again. It worked! (yes, the mesh has thickness).
I hope I can help you some day too!
Best regards.
