Hi Hal, Engraving is quite easy really, it is pretty much like drawing, but using a Dental Technician's flexible cable drill..... Lines are done with a diamond pointed Bit, and infill with a 'stone' bit. you can then polish back the white a bit using a carborundom impregnated rubber wheel.
It is a bit difficult when you are asked to do a glass with two 'Scottie Dog', one white and one black!!
