# Environmental Barometer — The Frog!

A tessellation created inside a box of four different mirrors. I guess I like to challenge myself, if you take into account my distaste of symmetry methods that use multiple mirrors.

A new version of KaleidoPaint has arrived. Here you will find:

1. A link to the side by side comparison of the new features vs. previous
2. Jeff’s List of upgrades for V3.0
4. Skillshare classes on the different symmetry groups
5. Help files on previous versions
6. Drawing a tessellation in each symmetry group

Deciding which symmetry group to use for a specific design can be hit and miss. And try again. You can narrow it down Continue reading

# Symmetry Group Pm – alternating parallel mirrors

This symmetry group is the last one for me to tackle. It has been a year since I started tessellating again, since I found the KaleidoPaint iPad app. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P6m — Perfect Snowflakes

It’s been a year last week, since I started drawing with the KaleidoPaint iPad app. I was avoiding this P6m symmetry group because of the tight space for drawing within and the abundance of mirrors. Continue reading
