This is a fully determined cube, including center orientation and orientation of the cube itself. Only one single solution! Only 26 stickers, same color, six different shapes.
|DIY Sticker Theme: Brushed Metal
The Redmill Cube is one of the least known sticker modifications. It was mentioned briefly in David Singmaster's Cubic Circular, issue 3&4 Spring/Summer 1982.

Each half face gets one of four colors, where halves of the same color should not meet at an edge.
The diametrically opposite corner has red/green/blue clockwise (opposite direction). One orientation would violate the edge rule, the other would produce identical corners, the third is the proper orientation. I used a dummy paper cube to check the overall color layout.
The resulting cube has six different centers (pick two out of four) with orientation.
Although placement and orientation seems to be fully determined, the cube has a nasty parity issue. Depending on how the centers are oriented, you can either end up with a solved cube, or one single mis-oriented corner. This is similar to the void cube parity, but a different case.
|DIY Tartan Dots Cube, based on the Tartan Cube layout by Dan Hoey from 1981
The original Tartan Cube layout used square color patches. The layout was suggested by Dan Hoey and Jim Saxe in 1981.
There are six cyclic arrangements for four colors. These six permutations are used to identify the six faces of a cube.
The resulting cube is over-determined: Center orientation matters, and the placement is given by the order of the colors, too - no need to peek at the sides.
I used evenly distributed dots to make it look even more confusing.
