This paper explores methods for colouring Truchet-like tiles, with an emphasis on the resulting visual patterns and designs. The methods are extended to non-square tilings that allow Truchet-like patterns of noticeably different character. Underlying parity issues are briefly discussed and solutions presented for parity problems that arise for tiles with odd numbers of sides. A new tile design called the arch tile is introduced and its artistic use demonstrated.
