I constantly get the question “What did you see at CHA show that impressed you?” The Chameleon Color Tones Pens impressed me as a great way to get lots of colors in a marker without buying a ga-jillon markers!

Here’s a preview:

    And here I’ve been worried about getting more Copics! These are awesome.

  2. kim Says:

    Brilliant product and the color chart is amazing!

  3. JanLee Says:

    These are fantastic! And I can’t believe the price! Seems too good to be true. :)Where would they be available?

  4. Jenny Rohrs Says:

    No word on availability quite yet- they are brand-new to the market and I’m sure one of their objectives at CHA was finding US distribution. Let’s hope a major chain picks them up soon!

  5. Kris Says:

    Wow! These pens are great! Hope somebody picks them up soon…. Thanks, Jenny!

  6. Natalie Says:

    Ooooh, these look pretty cool! I love how you can create that gradation without a bunch of manual blending. I love my current alcohol ink Promarkers ( a U.K. brand that is much cheaper than Copics). But these look like a great addition to my collection.

  7. Chris Says:

    Can you use these fantastic pens on non-porous surfaces like glass? Awesome color gradation would make beautiful rainbows…

  8. Jenny Says:

    Chris- we have not reviewed this product yet, but since they are alcohol-based they *should* work on all non-porous surfaces.

  9. Donna Banta Says:

    i would like to buy a set but can not find out where I can purchase them . Can you help me?

  10. Jenny Says:

    Donna- you didn’t mention where you are from, but I can tell you that they haven’t hit the US market quite yet. I know that the container just got here and we’ll be getting samples to do a “real” review very soon!

    I got my Chameleon pens on If anyone is still looking, and at this present time they are going through them again,
