Your not making a pen hot. Your making a pen with a blunt metal end hot using batteries. It's a matter of finding the right material that will get hot enough from a pair of AA batteries. Chances are that commercial product has a Teflon coating on the tip to allow it to flow over the material easier. Do a search for battery powered heating element.
An AA alcaline battery carbon rod should work perfecly.

Super super :)

I immediately thought with "battery powered heating element." IT :

This is great work track.

Thank you very much friend.

How about a soldering iron with a suitable tip, although you might need some form of dimmer inline to lower the heat.

Suggest you buy a gold or silver felt tip pen - they work just as well and MUCH cheaper.

eg. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Staedtler-Metallic-Markers-Pack-Silver/dp/B00B81SWGY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388252018&sr=8-1&keywords=silver+felt+tip
