Step 1

Assemble the pen for penspinning'a. Although such a “tool” may draw undue attention to you, it is highly recommended to have one. The reason is that learning the elements on a regular ballpoint pen is quite difficult: it is difficult to control and the learning process will be slower.

Step 2

The easiest assembly option: purchase a felt-tip pen, which has an alcohol-coated eraser on the back. Now, additionally put on the pen on both sides of the plastic cap (it does not matter - from the pen, marker and pencil).

Step 3

Start simple. The basic exercise that will allow you to develop general mobility is the rotation of the handle between the fingers - only four of them work (you cannot help with the thumb). Try to pay attention to the smoothness of the performance, you practically should not make any effort - the handle will slide by inertia.

Step 4

Expand the range of items available to you. The simplest tricks can be called: ThumbAround (throwing over the thumb), Sonic (turning upward) and Charge (rotating the handle in a circle). Despite the ease of implementation, the elements are difficult to describe, and the most productive way to learn will be a series of video tutorials on the Internet.

Step 5

When one of the elements begins to be confidently obtained on the "enlarged" projectile - try to do it with an ordinary fountain pen. At the same time, you need to take into account that it is less in mass and the center of gravity is shifted towards the cap. In addition, due to the small length, some tricks are completely impossible to perform.

Step 6

Develop both arms harmoniously. Exercises on the non-primary hand can not only develop it and make it more active, but also focus on the nuances of the technical execution of tricks. You will have to analyze your mistakes more and get used to the correct placement of your fingers.
