What is everyone doing to paint engravings? I just started engraving and want to see what others are doing to make things pop. Thanks, Trae

I typically paint over the piece, let the paint dry and then grind off all the paint leaving just paint in the deep engraving.
I also use machinists dye, but typically only come in red and blue.
