First of all, my first mod I plan on using my old alienware and beefing up its appearance alittle by etching an alien in the side of it..
Things you will need:
1) Paint(if you want your engraving surace to be a different color)
I chose Mirage paint from Duplicolor (chameleon)
2) An engraver, I chose a dremel cuz there is no substitute.
3) Masking tape
4) Chalk (I used a very soft art chalk)
