I need to color fill an engraving I did on marble. Problem is its not deep enough so when I wipe off the paint it come out of the engraving also.is there a way to fill it and get the excess off with out it coming out of the engraving?

try Rub n' buff--

works good on rock- takes some rubbing to get it off the smooth but it hangs on the etching nicely. Hobby stores, lots of colors--

I've never had much luck with color filling marble but if you use Rub n Buff the solvent is mineral spirits. Take a perfectly flat piece of plastic or wood and wrap it tightly with a lint free cloth such as a rag from an old bed sheet; put a little ms on it and see if that will clean up the excess without removing the fill.

Rub and buff works good, also Lasersketch sell a white color fill that works great

I did a Piece this weekend.
We left the mask in place and used an airbrush to color fill. We used auto colors, so the color was permanent and uv fast.

Looked great! I wish I took a pic of the piece though...
