All 50 colours are available as well as the Colourless Blender Pen and the versatile Detail Pen.
Are the Chameleon Colour Tones refillable and how do I know when to refill my pen?
Yes, you can buy ink and Toning Medium refills. It's time to refill when the color is no longer its full strength or when no Toning Medium comes out of the chamber when you try to infuse. Refills come in 25ml bottles. Be sure to keep refills of the Toning Medium and your favourite colours on hand .
Are the Bullet and Brush nibs replaceable and how often do I replace them?
Yes, they are replaceable, inexpensive and easy to change. How often depends on whether you are gentle with the pens or apply a lot of pressure to the nibs. The bullet nib is very durable and will last a long time however the Brush nib is super soft so for longer life its important to be light handed. While the nib goes through a natural breaking in process with some small loosening of fibres on the end, if the end of the nib becomes overly frayed or if the toning medium is not infusing evenly then its time to replace the nib.
How do I know exactly what color I am going to get?
Test on a scrap of the same paper you are using for your project. Some papers are more absorbent than others, not all white surfaces are the same.
Are they permanent?
Yes, but like any paint or ink display your completed work away from direct sunlight.
Are they acid-free?
Yes, when the ink is dry Chameleon Colour Tones are acid-free.
Do I need special paper?
No, but for best results it is wise to use paper, cardstock or illustration boards
designed for alcohol-based inks.
Can I use Chameleon Colour Tones alongside other alcohol-based markers?
Absolutely, they are compatible with other brands.
How should I store my markers?
We recommend your Chameleon Colour Tones are stored horizontally (flat). This helps to distribute the ink evenly and stop any settling on either side. If you carry or store your Chameleon Colour Tones vertically we advise you to lay them horizontally for a short time before using them.
What ink do I use for rubber stamping?
Solvent or alcohol inks are NOT compatible with alcohol based markers. For best results use pigment based inks and allow ink to dry or heat set before colouring.
