Chameleon Alcohol Markers and SpectraFix
I recently saw someone ask on Facebook if anyone had any knowledge of these alcohol markers.
Of course that meant I had to go to Amazon and check them out.
Here is what Amazon had to say about them:
Chameleon Color Tones are much more than a normal marker they give you the power to change color! Chameleon Color Tones brings color control and simplicity to your art. Create stunning effects such as 3D, smooth transitions, highlighting, shading, graduations and blending, all with one pen. Each pen goes from as light as hint of a tint to rich tones, eliminating tonal gaps in your collection. One pen multiple tones!
And then I found an awesome video on the chameleonpens.com website to show them in use.
They purported to be able to color and shade -
all with the same pen.
That left me wondering if they really did.
So. I ordered them.
Yes, I am a sucker for new product.
I can't help myself.
While I waited I drew this tile.
Simple, but it had the detail I needed to try the
Chameleon Alcohol Color Tone Markers.
I had also been wanting to try out this new fixative.
Supposedly it is:
non-toxic, fully archival, all natural, and odor-free.
That 'odor-free' is what drew me in.
No more having to take artwork outside to fix/seal
so you can breathe at the same time.
That was enough to sell me on the product right there.
The fact that it is quick-drying to an invisible, non-yellow, matte finish and can handle multiple layers of media was a plus.
