Review of Chameleon Color Tones Pencils

Recently I purchased Chameleon Color Tone pencils, not knowing what to expect.  I’m a die-hard colourer with Prismacolor pencil crayons and odorless mineral spirits.  I’ve spent upwards of 4+ hours colouring one detailed stamped image.  I was amazed at how well these pencils blend and cut down the time of blending with odorless mineral spirits.

I love these pencil crayons and here’s why:

  • They are compact.  50 colours in one box (the pencil crayon has a light and a dark tone on one pencil)
  • The ease of blending is awesome.  What used to take me 30 minutes can be achieved in half that time. Here is an example of what I blended in 15 minutes

  • I love the way the pencil crayons are displayed as I used them seen below
  • Carrying around a case without the paraphernalia of blending solutions, stumps, and a large leather case that holds 150 pencil crayons can be cumbersome.  Grab the thin packaging of these pencils is an awesome feeling.  I don’t need an extra bag to carry with me.
  • Leads come pre-sharpened and are hard
  • Blending solution is not required to blend two, or more, colours together

Here are a few samples of what I did with my Chameleon Color Tones:

This wonderful stamp is called Whimsical World from Technique Junkies.

I coloured on Kraft paper too.  Colour was directly applied.  I did not colour white over my image before colouring.  The stamps I used are by Technique Junkies and is called Flourished Floral and the sentiment is Life is Beautiful.

Hi Beth, the pencils look interesting, you have beautiful results. I have a ‘much loved’ 150 set of Prismas (150 is too many) and love them, but haven’t used them in a little while. I tend to just blend with the pencils and not use the mineral spirits, I’ll have to try it sometime. Have a great day xx

Thanks for the great review, Beth! I’ve been wondering about these. Your blended images are so pretty, and who wouldn’t love a faster coloring option? Thanks for sharing!
