HAPPY MAIL!! Chameleon Color Tops Kickstarter Kit

Super excited to finally have my Chameleon Color Tops from the Kickstarter program a few months back.  No big unboxing .. lil man tore into this box the second we got it haha.  He likes Happy Mail as much as his momma does.

Ok..so for those who of you who don’t know what a Kickstarter program is.. a brief explanation.  Kickstarter is used by companies to raise funds to get new products into production and I guess probably gauge the public’s response to an idea to see if it is worth continuing with before committing to Big $’s  in production.

Anyone who was involved in this one will tell you… the public responded… in a big way lol.  this project was open for funding for a month.. and met it’s initial funding goal in the first 2 hours of  going live.  If you are a Chameleon Pens fan… that would come as no surprise to you at all LOL.

Various reward levels are available to suit funding partners of all budgets.  Funding commitments started at $10,  all the way up to a whopping $400+ for those people who just wanted it all. Each funding level had it’s own rewards associated with it.  Basically you select how much you want to pay in to fund the project and you get the rewards on offer for that level BEFORE they go on sale to everyone else.  Much as I would have loved to go all out for the “LOT”, I just didn’t have the funds available to do that * sigh.  But I did jump in and get my  Color Tops… and then on top of the regular rewards there were also goal rewards. As funding offers flew in .. a new goal level  reward was added in…so on top of my color tops… I also received a bunch of extra goal rewards. The detailer pen, an additional blender pen, extra tips and color cards… there was also free online classes offered which we all received  when the funding period closed.

Ok so..what did I pay? and what did I get …  a $70 pledge got me the full range of  the brand new product “Color Tops” plus the extras mentioned above.  If you know what tip to tip blending is, and already know the concept behind how Chameleon Pens work…. then this will  be easy to understand.  Instead of coloring with one color and achieving your tones with the blender tops on each pen…. you can now tip to tip blend EASILY, ACCURATELY AND ….in COLOR!!!   yup.  The exact way you blend with your current Chameleons using clear blender.. but in color.

I am not going to gab on forever about this right now… expect a new post real soon, probably with video. If I can find a quiet minute to make a basic one I will.

One Happy Crafter… thanks Chameleon Pens!!!  comes as no surprise you blew the funding goals out of the water again this time.  And for all of you who missed out on the Kickstarter again this time… The new products will be available soon 🙂  If you haven’t seen these pens before…and this is your  first time hearing the name … WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN !!!!  lol

ooh yeah.. just ordered an air brush

Nothing too fancy…  but this is more than plenty for me and the little guy.  He has shown a lot of interest in air brushing with the hand held and with air cans..and this will be much easier for him.  Am I the only one with an almost 4 year old who will be air brushing haha.

My plan is to rig up an adapter to hold  marker pens too.. so if I manage that..I’ll be sure to share the details later on.  Last year someone  gave me a brand new Testors compressor that they bought and never used.. and I have wanted to try air brushing for years.  Super excited.

The kit I got has 3 tips .2, .3 and a .5 … so I am sure I will find something cool to do with it on my cards etc …

I got it on Ebay for $26.99 +Free shipping..
