I know that each of us should sign our work, and it is obvious you can sign a painting appropriately, or a chair or sofa, on the bottom... with a pen, etc...I can attach a label to a petitpoint rug or stich my name into the gauze on the back side of the rug. I do keep a journal of my own projects.... Has anyone used typeset to create a maker's mark? How does one create a hallmark for silver or brass? My limited brass machining experience tells me that brass is relatively hard. Would I heat the metal in order to strike the base with my tiny typeset piece... Do you use an awl to sign your work? Its just such a tiny area and the awl and my fingers are 12x too large for writing... subject to having access to a laser, or casting metals and putting the signature into the mold, what are your options when trying to sign a metal piece? I think using typeset on wood is pretty easy... but metal...? I was looking at some of my silver this morning, and all of my pieces from Pete Acquisto are marked... The 25th Anniversary of NAME piece appears to engraved NAME 25... on a non flat surface...amazing if it were engraved, but I think more likely that it was marked in the casting. Tamra
