A Rainbow Dodecahedron, Made of Hexagons
Software credit: see http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php to try or buy the software I used to make this. It’s called Stella 4d.
On the Varieties of Water

ThreeColor Tessellation: A Modification of the Tiling of the Plane with Regular Hexagons
In each case, modifications along hexagonedges were made using equilateral triangles. Every segment in this tessellation has equal length, also, which required trisection of the original hexagons’ sides.
Pentagonal Mandala III
I suspect that this could be continued outward indefinitely, as a radial and aperiodic tessellation, using only the four polygons you see, repeatedly, here. However, I have no proof of this.
Octagons Can Tile a Plane
This tessellation is made entirely of octagons. Half of them are regular, while the other half are equilateral and tetraconcave.
