Copper nail brand tutorial *PIC*

Molly Winton
>As promised, here is a brief tutorial of how to make brands using copper nails. As Russ posted previously, nails can be found at marine supply stores, or follow his posted link to buy online if you don't have a marine store nearby.

The wire used is nichrome wire. This can be purchased at hobby stores, Craft Supplies USA, but I've found the cheapest is via ebay (do a search for nichrome wire). The guage I'm using is 20 guage.

You will also need a burning unit and pen that can accept home-made brands. Hope this helps!
