Today I thought I'd share my thoughts with you about the new innovative Chameleon pens that launched on C&C a couple of weeks ago.
As I think we all know I absolutely love my Copic markers and more recently have become a fan of the Spectrum Noir range too. When I saw the Chameleon pens (being that they are alcohol based) I was definitely interested in trying them out especially as you can get SO many tones just from one pen!!!
Below is my VERY first go with them.
To be fair there is a bit of a learning curve with them, learning how long to fuse them for and getting the hang of colouring in either a side to side movement or little circles as opposed to flicking or feathering (which was always my preferred method) but it really doesn't take long to adapt to this way of colouring. Also I am not a 'great' colourist - there are people out there who are just amazing at colouring and I'm not one of them!! I would say that I am a 'middle of the road' sort of colourer so if I can do it from following the demos on telly anyone can!!!
So far I have only had a very quick go with the complete set that I bought but I am really looking forward to trying out different images with them and having a good play!!
I am thinking about running some classes (from my home) using these pens for anyone that is interested in having a go with them so if anyone is interested in this please do email me.
