    Branding stamp attempt no 2

    So.... After a good cry and severe self kicking I cut off 2 hours of work and started again. Much better effort although it's really only me who recognises what it is I'm happy with it though will probably finesse it a bit especially where the L crosses the R to separate the letters a little. I didn't try too hard to keep the letter edges smooth as I quite like a rustic look, whether I'll actually use it is another thing.

    Brass was cut using Dremel type and dental burrs but instead of the Dremel I used my Foredom flexi carver which is more controllable.

    Recently I bought a small gas soldering iron to weld plastic it will now have an additional use as heater for a stamp I will make.

    Ah, that's better. I like the rustic look too - looks like it is meant to be a copy of a handwritten monogram.

    Looks good to me. I get the impression (pun intended) that these are a bit tricky to make!

    Very nice Bob it came out well and yes the rustic look is great separating the letters would be a good idea just to make each stand out and keep the outer ring like the first would have been nice. I saw a video with someone doing it this way keep meaning to do one myself

    I think they must have a different definition down under of "branding the old cow" than we do Bob
