Well if you dont have any ink in your pen you should probley ask the store or compony you got it from

There are several types of refillable pen.

- Your standard disposable pen is not one of them.

- An older sty;e ball-point pen was designed to screw apart in order for the cartridge to be replace. There are still some of these sorts of pens on the market and you can buy refills for them at any good office supply store. Unscrew the barrel, remove the old cartridge, retain the spring at the point of the cartridge, replace the cartridge (placing the spring on it as it was on the old one) and screw the barrel back together. You are good to go.

- There are several types of fountain pen on the market that had ink filled cartridges that fill into the barrel of the pen. When one is empty, you unscrew the barrel, remove the empty cartridge, place a new one into the barrel and screw the barrel back together. The design of this kind of pen has a sharp hollow tube in the head of the pen that then pierces the barrel allowing the ink to flow into the nib.

- Older fountain pens had bladders in the barrel, which you had to fill by compressing the bladder (to remove the air), then immerse the nib in the ink (still keeping the bladder compressed), release the bladder (and the vacuum draws the ink into the reservoir). This process can be messy.

- There are mapping pens and dip pens that you simply immerse the nib in ink and write as long as the ink lasts, them re-dip the nib. This is one of the oldest forms of pen, born of the old quill pens, and is still used today in many art classes. The art of using a dip pen is really not all that hard to learn and well worth the effort.

Difficult, it can be very hard for people who do not have experience with it because you have to hold it a certain way.

What makes colours come out of a pen?

Well, it's ink that comes out of a pen. That's how they work. The makers fill the pen brush up with ink, and then you can use it if you buy it. If the ink in the pen dries out (or runs out) you can't use it anymore enless you fill up the pen with ink or buy new pens. By the way, its a tiny bit dangerous and pointless to fill the pen wih ink again so be right, buy new ones!! I hope I helped xxx
