Here are a few ideas how to use the natural symmetry of the pattern to color Geomegic patterns with just 2 colors.
Using natural symmetry of the pattern
to create beautiful coloring designs
Part 1 – Coloring With 2 Colors
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.
Put it all together
So when coloring a full pattern you can mix and match these coloring styles and come up with the different design every time. Isn’t that fun?!
