Hi everyone,

I sent this info (and project) to Jean offlist but I thought others might 
also be interested in the technique.

Hi Jean,

What I would do is make a triangle_shapes_factory procedure
that creates many polygon shapes with different colors. Then,
I would use those different-colored shapes.

I'm attaching a project that exemplifies what I mean. Notice
how, at the beginning, shapes 1 through 6 are empty, but
after you use the triangle_shapes_factory button all of them
have triangle shapes.
