To achieve the two-color gradients seen in the video above you will need both Chameleon Pens and Chameleon Color Tops. Simply, place the Color Top on top of the pen and hold it for around 10 seconds. Top tip: The amount of time you infuse the Color Top with the pen will depend on the size of the area you are filling in - the larger the area the longer infuse time you will need.

Chameleon colors used:

- Crimson Red RD4
- Tangerine OR3
- Summer Sun YL2
- Grass Green GR3
- Sky Blue BL3
- Purple Grape PR4
- Fuchsia PK5

Sarah's top tip for this piece of line art: "Use thicker strokes when drawing or creating a piece with the line art. It will give you more room for error when coloring in this piece with the Chameleon markers. This way the lines are more forgiving, and it's easier to stay in the lines."
