Introduction: A-Maze-ing Fun With Truchet Tiles
Maze-like designs like this are easy to make whether you chose to create them for real or in Photoshop.
They are a variation on something called Truchet Tiles.
Step 1: Design Your Tiles
Design some tiles for yourself that visually connect to each other regardless of how they are placed. In this example I made sure my tiles all had 'gates' in the center of each edge, and 'roadways' that connected those 4 gates in one way or another.
Make the tiles from rubber stamps, clay, carved wood, or any other material you like. I leave those details to you.
Or follow the procedure presented in the video in step 3 and print the resulting design. If you know any Photoshop I think you'll enjoy the video.
Step 2: Randomly Place Your Tiles
If you are making a pattern like this using real materials then all you need to do is choose your next tile and its orientation from a bag, according to the throw of a dice, or by whatever random means you like.
Step 3: Don't Miss the Video - It's Kind of Cool
If you are here for the video and the Photoshop workflow, I hope you enjoy it. I think it's fairly novel and may stimulate in you other ideas along these lines.
