Pop off the plug at the bottom of the pen, and take off the cap. With your knife, dig out the tip of the pen. Move to the other end of the pen and wedge out the foamy ink material.

Step 3: Stuffing the Aluminum Foilli

Take your aluminum foil and crumple/roll it into a sharpish clump. Then, stuff it in the back of the empty pen barrel, pointy end first. Make sure the aluminum foil is sticking out of the tip of the pen barrel slightly. You should put the plug back in now.

Step 4: Foam

Now, take your foam and cut a fair strip of it out. Take that strip and double it up. Then, squeeze the open end of the foam around the aluminum foil sticking out of the tip of the barrel. Push it down until it looks OK.
You're done! If your's doesn't work, put some water on the tip, then dry it off somewhat, if it STILL doesn't work, put more foil in the barrel. You could put some electric tape around the barrel to make it look better, but that's up to you.
