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.
besso ceramique
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).
