random designs

It’s also worth bearing in mind that if you intend to use border tiles as part of a random
colour pattern, this is by far the easiest way to work out how many of each colour you will
need.

These are ready-made, random designs, 12 tiles long, that can safely be duplicated again
and again - you simply need to plug in your own choice of colours. It is hard to make a
design look random with too few colours, so the examples below are for selections of 5, 6
or 7 colours - 5 really is the minimum. For each there are 2 designs - one using roughly
equal numbers of all the colours and another using 2 of the colours as contrasts. There are
brushwork and brick versions too, so something for everyone. Again, don’t take any notice
of the colours in this section - it’s the layout that’s important.

Tile colours and numbers here
are the same as for the square
tiles above (excluding the half-
brick ends).
