  1. We've just put together a range of 'Student Pens' costing between $2.75 and $4.95. This has been one of my pet projects for some time now and one of my original criteria was that the pen must take a converter AND Standard Cartridges. They all do except the Hero 266 but it's pretty easy to fill - and the Hero 358 ($4.80 with 4 cartridges) which will only take cartridges because there isn't enough headroom for a converter. Despite this inexplicable design choice, this pen and the Sellners ($2.75) are my picks. Both write amazingly well for such inexpensive pens, particularly the Hero.
  2. I have read here on FPN about spray painting preppies. (Using that special meant-for-plastic-spray-paint) I was wondering if I could spray paint a Pilot Metropolitan? I am considering purchasing the white one but I don't like the animal print design and was considering painting that part of the pen. I would take it all apart of course and tape up the the silver end and the open part very thoroughly. Any thoughts? Is it worth it to try or would it be a disaster? As the pen is only $15 I thought it might be safe to give it a try and it wouldn't be too big of a loss if it didn't go well. But I'd really like to hear what you think. Have you ever painted a fountain pen? How did it turn out? Did you like the end result? Tell us about it! Thank you for your input!!
