    I marked one the other day like that and made a huge mess. I didn't let it dry before I tried to clean it up and ended doing it all over again. I also realized that I suck at art.

    However, I have also used crayons, rub them over the stampings till they fill in. Use an alcohol swab to remove any that gets anywhere you do not want it. I have used this method to make stampings and serial numbers easier to read for years. Have a couple rifles that were done about 10 years back that still look good.
