I am assuming you have read all of the help files within the KaleidoPaint iPad App. It’s not very complicated. Go read it. Continue reading
It’s so nice to share with your friends! Sometimes when I am drawing, Continue reading
This tessellation method uses 3 reflections in a 45/45/90 degree triangle. Continue reading
Symmetry Group P31M can easily be confused with P3M1 which has 3 different mirror reflections. I’ve made the mistake often Continue reading
Images formed in a 3 mirrored equilateral triangle kaleidoscopic shape. Here as well, bilateral symmetry is at play. Three figures reflected in their 3 different mirrors, all 3 lines joining in the middle of the Continue reading
Oh, so confusing. I still can’t quite wrap my eyeballs around these two sketches. They look so similar in topic and distribution across the surface. Their construction seems the same at first glance.
Symmetry group P3, or 3 rotations through 120 degrees. This is quite a versatile symmetry group, and easy to accomplish. Only two lines to draw the outline of your classic tessellation. Continue reading
Symmetry Group Cmm, a.k.a., C2mm for us nerds. This is a tessellation built within a 30 / 60 / 90 degree triangle. It has mirrors on the 2 short sides and a two-fold rotation on the hypotenuse.
Group Pmm is also known as P2mm in Peter S. Stevens’ Handbook of Regular Patterns. A four-sided mirrored box. Figures with bilateral symmetry work best in this type of group. Continue reading
