If you're gonna repeat the same thing over and over, or just want
to burn your logo or whatever, no prob. Make a branding iron. No
biggie. You need a piece of brass about 1/8 thick. (hobby shop) ferric
chloride eching solution (radio shack) paint and small brush or a felt
marker. Paint, or draw, the design on the brass backwards. drop in
echant until thel design is raised quite a bit. Then wash it with water.
and remove the paint. (NOTE: I have NOT done this; however, I have used
a similar [or the same] etching solution to etch glass [for glass it is
a paste, apply with a small brush], using stencils. Wear rubber gloves
[don't forget and scratch your nose or rub your ear], rinse under cold
running water, use common sense; just remember, this is at your own
risk. You can use a large electric soldering iron for heat - braze, or
silver solder, the branding iron on. Or afix to a steel rod, and head
with a propane torch. I'd say put a wooden handle on. No biggie. If I
ever change my mind about just gluing a business card on the bottom or
inside of whatever, I'll make one for myself. If I run across a piece
of brass, may just make one anyway.
