I don’t remember exactly who actually showed me how to color for the first time but I have a very fond memory to share. My paternal Grandmother and I used to color. I remember her showing me how to outline the item I am coloring and then fill it in with color. I remember this and still do it! Well, sometimes I get a little to excited about coloring and go outside of the lines…. YES, I KNOW! Usually it is on something that I have been coloring on for a while and I am at the last finishing touches and the mistake happens!how-to-correct-your-chameleon-pen-coloring-mistake-plus-giveaway-a

Now, for the creative stuff….let’s get started. I am so excited about showing you this. It is SO SIMPLE and super helpful!


I am going to be coloring the Awareness Ribbon with the Chameleon Pen PK3. You will want to take out your pen and take teh bullet nib cap off and set it aside. Place the blending solution chamber on top of the nib ensuring the nibs are touching. Wait 10-15 seconds.


I took off the blending solution chamber and begin coloring your image with the lightest (light source) place first.


OH NO! I made a mistake… lol


Take out your colorless blender pen. I use the bullet nib unless there are really small areas in which I would then use the brush nib.


Using the colorless blender pen, “push” the ink that you want to remove toward the colored area. For deeper pigmented colors, you may have to repeat or it is possible you will not be able to get all of the color off depending on the color saturation.


Here are the beginning results using the colorless blender.


Here you can see where the color has dissipated.


In this picture, I have colored the ribbon slightly outside of the stamped image at the top as shown above.


Using the colorless blender, I am slowly using the bullet nub and pushing it toward the line.


This is the result! Looks great!

We hope you enjoyed learning How to correct your Chameleon Pen coloring MISTAKE! This will work with ANY ALCOHOL MARKER MISTAKE I just used the Chameleon Pens as an example. It will also be difficult to completely get rid of the pigment if it is a very dark color as stated above.

Thank you for going on A Creative Journey with Melissa

    Great tip! Was the colorlesss blender used in the video Chameleon brand? I just bought Chameleon markers and wondering if any colorless blender would work or if I need a Chameleon brand one.

    Congrats, Helen!
    I’ve seen this done with other alcohol markers, but the first time I’ve seen it with Chameleon pens. Cool!
    I love that the awareness ribbon stamps and sentiments can fit any of the colors and illnesses they stand for.
    I do follow you on YouTube and am subscribed to your newsletter.

    I’ve never tried colouring with these pens, but I might give them a try. I like the idea of getting multiple colours with just one pen. Great tip on how to correct those colouring mistakes.
