Coloring on Wood Paper with Chameleon Pens

This week has flown by. We are back and so excited to share more Chameleon Pen and Wood paper projects. We were floored by the amazing projects and talent that was shared last week. We have quickly become Chameleon addicts.

ARC Chameleon Starfish 6

We have two pieces of home decor to share. First is this Starfish print on Birch Wood paper. This is a larger scale coloring project and is super simple to create with only RD4 and YL2 Chameleon Pens, one sheet of Birch Wood paper, starfish art file (from Vintage Fangirl) and an inkjet printer.

ARC Chameleon Starfish 5

1. Print this starfish file onto an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of Birch Wood paper.

2. Color away using RD4 and YL2 Chameleon Pens.

That’s it! So simple and so stunning. The red and yellow tones in these pens blend perfectly for a nice orange color.

Chameleon pens are alcohol based so they blend nicely and work with alcohol blending solutions. This next project is a little playful and fun. Follow these simple steps below:

ARC Chameleon 3 Birch

1. Download this free coloring page from Amy Tangerine (So Many Reasons).

2. Print the So Many Reasons file onto an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of Birch Wood paper.

3. Color each letter a different color using the Primary Color tones Chameleon Pens.

4. Randomly add droplets of Ranger / Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol blending solution and watch the magic happen.

We think this technique is super fun and gives us SO MANY REASONS TO BE HAPPY!

Chameleon Pens are so amazing. We had so much fun learning to use these new tools. We must admit, we are not professionals at coloring. We had a tiny bit of a learning curve using theChameleon Color Tone pens but once we got the hang of it we went crazy testing and playing with these cool pens out on various projects. Can you say addicted to coloring? To help you learn how to use these pens Chameleon has a ton of how to videos and tips on their Vimeo and YouTubechannels. Check out their website, as well as daily inspiration on Chameleon’s various social media: TwitterInstagram, FacebookPinterest, Tumbler … give them a follow.


We love that your can completely change the color of our Wood Paper, effectively staining it, with Chameleon Pens. Check out how the grain of our wood paper shows through with the solid color of the RD4 Red Crimson Chameleon Pen. Amazing!
