Geomegic patterns are created with the help of a grid page. Triangle grid, for example, consists of equilateral triangles that also make up a hexagon shape if you put 6 triangles together. Knowing this, we can play around with a few different ways to color the patterns.


3 styles of coloring with 2 colors.

 

Style #1 – Alternate 2 colors

Color every other piece with a different color

Style #2 – Color half and half

Color the first half with one color and the second half with the other color.

Style #3 – Use different element as a starting point

On the examples above we were starting at the topmost piece and going counter-clockwise.
You can start coloring from any piece and go clockwise or counterclockwise.
