I have a brass base, of a candelabra for example, that I want to hard-mark with my company logo. It was, by a coworker, suggested that I use a solder mask cut out a relief of our logo, flux it and dip it in a solder pot, and then remove the solder mask to reveal our logo hard marked on the base. Is this reasonable, or is he blowing smoke up my backside? I know that I could just have the logo laser etched into the base, but we already have the solder pot and other items in-house. The point is that I need a permanent electrically conductive logo, and to do so in house and inexpensively.
