 423 is the easiest symmetrical 3 object siteswap besides the basic pattern. The throwing rhythm is right-pause-right-left-pause-left... with a 1-beat pause between throws with the same hand.

Two balls are thrown with non-crossing throws like the throws in a 4 ball fountain (4s), one staying on each side of the pattern, and the other ball is thrown across from hand to hand (3s), about half the height of the non-crossing throws. The 2 is a pause between a 4 and a 3 with the same hand, where the other hand is just holding a ball and not throwing.
