Here are a few ideas how to use the natural symmetry of the pattern to color Geomegic patterns. This approach also works well for any repeatable patterns or mandalas.

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.
