Refilling Your Chameleon Pens Mixing Chamber with Colorless Blender Solution is what we are doing today. I don’t know about you but I LOVE MY CHAMELEON PENS!! I love how they are compact, refillable. and basically as I call them- A FOREVER PEN! I love to play with different color palettes and create different dimension with them as well. If you haven’t tried them yet, be sure to visit your Local Scrapbook Store or your Local Stamp Store (LSS) to see if they have them in so that you can see them in person! They are so much fun to play with… You won’t want to miss out!
Whether you like a video tutorial or a pictorial, we have you covered! Let’s get started with the tutorial!
Supplies You Will Need:
Your CB (Colorless Blender) Ink Refill Kit
*Included in each Ink Refill Kit: Ink, Syringe, and the Refill Tool (needle)
Protected Surface or something to protect your work surface
Open your Ink Refill Kit and take out your Syringe, needle/applicator and ink/solution.
Open your pens mixing chamber. Set the colored ink side of the pen aside leaving you with the mixing chamber and nib. Set aside the mixing chamber while you prepare your syringe with the colorless blender.
You do not want to overfill your pens. Only fill your pens one milliliter at a time. This would be at the “1” mark on your syringe.
Take out your Colorless Blender Solution. Open it and set the cap aside. Take out your ink applicator/needle. Take off the protective cap. Set the cap aside.
Place the applicator/needle on the syringe.
Ensuring that the syringe is pushed all of the way to the bottom so all liquid and air is gone, place your syringe in the colorless blending solution bottle. Pull back on the syringe plunger until the bottom of the black tip of the plunger is at the “1” mark for one milliliter.
Here is a close up picture.
Take out your Chameleon Tweezers. Using your Chameleon Tweezers, carefully pull out your Blending Chamber nib.
Once you take the nib out, set it aside on a clean, protected surface.
When Refilling Your Chameleon Pens Mixing Chamber with Colorless Blender Solution; Here is a close up of the Blending Chamber. The square inside is where you will place the applicator/needle.
Once you put your applicator/needle inside the chamber you will feel a little bit of resistance. This is NORMAL. Push the needle/applicator a little bit further to ensure the solution is being place inside the chamber.
Push the plunger all of the way down transferring the blender solution into the blending chamber. Remove the syringe.
Pick up your nib and return your nib back to the blending chamber with your Chameleon Tweezers making sure it is completely seated in the mixing chamber.
To verify the nib is properly secured in the mixing chamber, take off one cap off of your ink side of your pen.
Place the mixing chamber on the nib as you would if you were to color, ensuring that the two nibs “kiss” allowing the transfer of blender solution.
YOU DID IT! You have officially added your Colorless Blender Solution to your Chameleon Pen!
