Does The World Really Need Another Alcohol Pen?

The answer is YES!

The team here at Chameleon has been working on the Chameleon Pens for almost three years. We are proud to finally make them available to artists and crafters worldwide!

Chameleon Pens are different than any other alcohol pen. HOW? Chameleon Pens give you the power to change the color tone of your ink. You can get multiple color tones from one pen. Do color transitions, gradations and seamless color blends, effectively giving you a palette in a pen!

Chameleon Pens are not just another “me-too” alcohol pen. There are many wonderful, high-quality, alcohol-based marker systems on the market, but none of them can do what a Chameleon Pen can! Chameleon Pens work great alongside any existing alcohol pens you already own. By adding Chameleon to your arsenal, you can do one pen blends!

Inventor Terry Bolton was an artist.

He understood that color tones were the foundation of all good artwork, because they bring depth and dimension to a picture.


Terry believed that many tonal variations are hidden inside every marker pen, waiting to get out. He wanted to create a pen that wasn’t limited to one flat color, so he would need lots of different pens to create depth and dimension. He invented an elegant system that would help artists do MORE with LESS! 



The patented system that Chameleon inventor Terry Bolton devised, is simple but effective. It allows the user to create simple seamless blends using only ONE pen (instead of using three or four pens). This system is great for first-time alcohol pen users, or folks who don’t want to spend a lot of money on a ton of pens to get blended effects.

The twenty colors give you a good base range to start. You can also go up and down the spectrum, so you essentially have a palette (an entire color family) in every pen.

This is also a great system for Zentangle and mixed media artists, or students who want the ability to add depth and dimension to their art, without the high cost of hundreds of pens. Finally, the system is perfect for folks who have tried other alcohol pen systems, and found it challenging to do color blends. The Chameleon Pen essentially does the blending for you!

We think that, once you get the pens in your hand and give them a try, you will agree – YES, the world does need Chameleon Pens!

      I will pass your comment on to our marketing team, but from personal experience I know that the merest hint of color when blending is the same as a 0000 Copic so anything in the spectrum from there upwards back to the original color. Hope this helps!

    Just got my chmeleon pens,think they are fantastic colours,still experimenting with them as early days yet.One thing I did find was that if you had dexterity problems you may find them a little hard to use,as you have to keep taking tops off which can be stiff

      Hi Patricia we find that if you twist and pull at the same time they are a little easier to come off, hope that helps 🙂

    I ordered the 22 Pc Set on Tuesday, 2/3/15 and waiting for them to arrive. I have 118 Copic markers and am looking forward to the Chameleons arriving. Just may sell my Copics if the Chameleons do what I expect them to do for me.

      Barbara I have over 400+ Copic and other pens and since I discovered the Chameleon pens they have sat redundant on the shelf,we would love to see what you create with your new pens 🙂

    Just purchased my 1st set of Chameleon Pens in the primary colors after reading several tutorials on your website. Can’t wait to receive them and give them a try. Also have several Copic markers. And from what I am reading, I should be able to use them together, right?

      Yes Chameleon Pens being alcohol based work fantastically well with all other markers, so they will work fine with your copics 🙂
