Firebrands and denim jeans

Recommended Posts

Back in 2004 my wife of many years passed away. After 3 years I met and married a cowgirl, and for nearly 12 years we have lived our dreams. Since she liked my brand, a floating R, I decided to brand a pair of her jeans with a very small copy of our brand. The pocket where I applied the hot brand burst into flames and within seconds I knew this would not turn out well. A big patch of damaged denim fell to the ground. My only good luck was: she was not wearing them.

 

Is there a way that I can safely apply a firebrand to denim clothing? Trust me, I will test this time using my denim jacket first.

Perhaps do it with the jeans being wet.....

fabric paints are flexible, that is why I specified them.  Latex paint works fine too, but will lose the outer layer over time looking like a stain

 

I suppose you could use flexseal, it works for everything else.  :D

Brand a piece of leather and then sew it on the jeans

 

That is a viable option too!

 

Have the brand embroidered onto her jeans?

 

Have a patch made up?

I have not done this before, but I have scorched my pants with an iron leaving a mark.  Maybe if the branding iron was not so hot to burn through the fabric, it might leave the brand as a scorched mark.  My wife said you should wet the fabric first.

 Take them to a T-shirt shop and have them screen printed

The fabric was pure cotton .... denim. These are some good ideas. I gotta decide which one to try.
