Ink Pad Branding Irons


Make irons out of one piece of # 14 gauge solid galvanized wire. is the handle and is
bent straight up from pat t ern. Start bending wire at the and follow the arrows. Make
sure all your bends are kept flat. Then push your branding iron into an ink pad and then
onto a piece of paper. (Use a pencil to help push down all parts.) These patterns are
some samples. So, be creative and design your own branding irons, also.
( remember, only 1 piece of wire ) ( hint: have something soft underneath your paper )
