    Thanks for the info-I'm about to go try using some of my son's crayons and alcohol on cleaning patches to wipe away excess. If it works, I'll throw up a pic. If not, I'll clean it all off and then try again with the paint method.

    That's how it came out with crayon. The right side has a little reflection right in front of the white lettering from leftover wax. I'll get it cleaned up later. I may just paint it down the road so I can sharpen things up a little. I tried doing the logo but they messed up on the engraving so I couldn't get the color to hold evenly.

    I used acrylic paint pens and Goof Off to wipe off the excess. Very quick drying and the goof off took the excess right off. Don't try alcohol or acetone, won't work.
