What colour do those black walmart mugs and plates engrave to? I've thought about picking up some samples (ala Steve goes shopping..ha) and trying them out! Just never got a round-tu-it

They turn somewhat white, I think its more distortion due to the engraving (not because of a white inside)...what I usually do is after engraving, I use perminent ink to bring out the design. I found different colored inks at my local scrapbook store. I tried using the color fills but found that after a few runs threw a dishwasher the fill starts to wash off.

I had a picture but can't seem to find it, will take another one and try to post it.

Ok, the above post was for the coffee cups. When engraving the plates, the engraved area seems to still retain the original color so you almost have to do some sort of color fill.

Ya thats what I thought would happen... I'd like to find a local source for those cobalt blue glass plates and cups.. Or 'any' coloured glass plates and cups.. All the glass ones frost white when etched, and some are very striking..
