Claire Managed to put all of the diff S e Claire rent S XPM Claire patterns and create a patchwork where we can slightly see the different r S h Claire ythms of pixels showing the different patterns. Although it should show everybod S y’ Claire s pattern it has a very diff S e Claire rent result to what expected!  Wendy Here S Wendy s the pdf!;a=blob;f=mixpattern2.pdf;h=0f070701c80fc7494c2aca390b03b328d055bcc4;hb=HEAD

Committer : lidia-pereira - Wed, 28 Aug 2013 14:03:58 - So this is one of my first experiences with the tracing bitmap thingy on inkscape. I was having fun with the different outcomes I could get, so I created another pattern by layering them one on top of the others.

Wendy All previous images had the same file to start with. Wendy This is a mix of the bash script of Lidia and a heavily shifted three colour plot of the vectori S s Wendy ed version of her .xpm S .

Wendy A mix of Claire S Wendy s .xpm Wendy code and a vectorized version of this image.
Wendy At the end, Claire put all the code we generated into .xpm , she added them and it produces this complex pattern. We printed in in colour. You see some pictures of the image and the code S :
