Default Carving in copper

I read an article by Bob Smalser on making a brand from an old copper soldering head.
It gives you an area of about 1 to 1 1/4" face.
Has anyone tried this. I am not a carver but I would like to try this. I have some carving tools. I would appreciate any suggestions on tools. It would be just initials.

Thanks BJ, but I have the copper heads.
I was just looking for input for methods. I thought someone who has made one might offer suggestions.
