Introduction: How to Make a Inkless Pen
Hey guys ! I am gonna share how I create a inkless pen that truly writes! All you need is a metal tube , solder ,aluminum foil and some hot glue. Let’s get started .
Step 1: Video Tutorial
Step 2: Making Mold for the Pen Tip
Using a pencil as a mold, wrap aluminum foil around the pencil tightly for uniform pen tip.
Step 3: Applying Solder Into the Mold
Drip solder into the mold by melting it with a soldering iron .Dip the tip of the soldering iron in the mold to melt all the solder for a uniform pen tip. Leave the mold to cool then remove the aluminum foil.
Step 4: Seal the Other End of the Pen
I push a ball of aluminum into the metal tube,leaving a small distance between the gap and the aluminum ball.I then drip molten solder at the end of the tube to seal it. Finally,any excessive solder is sanded away .
Step 5: Applying the Pen Tip
I add hot glue to the other end of the metal tube before sticking the a portion of the tip into the metal tube .
Step 6: Finishing Touches
Finally , I sand the surface of the pen and polish it for a glossy look .Now , you have a piece of art in your hand to write with !
Step 7: Write!
How it works is that when you write, the pen leaves scratches of solder behind a clear metallic mark .Happy writing!
