I have often run up against period pens as a problem.
It is very difficult to come across anything cheap and plentiful at the stores that doesn't look like these decidedly modern pens. In the past I have often resorted to spending far more money that I would like on nicer pens that were more timeless, or trying to validate the choice of a pencil in all situations.
This summer I had an epiphany and discovered a cheap simple solution.
A coat of silver or gold spray paint on an ugly plastic pen
results in a piece that looks classy and timeless from any distance. And saves me a ton of money and time in the future.
