I was able to play a bit with my new Chameleon markers this past weekend.
And if you know me, then you know I don't really play with my art supplies.
When I get something new, I try my hand at a project and expect it to come out right the first time, lol.
How did I like the outcome of these markers.
Well let me first tell you that I am spoiled by using Copics.
These are not Copics, nor do they claim to be.
As you can see (sorry for the blurry photo, but that is as close as I could get with my iPhone) they don't blend as well as my Copics.
But then again, this is my first try with them, and there is probably a learning curve.
I don't like that you can see the colour lines as the colour changes…but then again, remember, this is my first time using them.
I have not tried skin tones yet, so we will see how that goes.
What I do like about them is that there is only 20 colours and I don't need to take all of my 300+ Copics to camp if I want to do some colouring.
They will be good to use in my planner or fauxbonichi journal, as I don't need my coloured images to be perfect in those.
The difference between these and other alcohol markers, is that there is a built in blender pen on each marker bottom.
Once you touch the coloured marker tip to the blender tip, the marker colour lightens.
As you colour the coloured ink re-saturates the marker tip and the colour gets darker, until it goes to its original colour.
There is a more technical way of describing it…if you want to know more, go to the Chameleon site…this is where I got this labelled photo from ;)
Just for the record, I purchased these markers, they were NOT sent to me for a review … ;)
I hope you all had a very creative day :)
I started cleaning my craft room today…now that is a big job.
