Hi carlosa,
Hope that the next part of The Voxeler's Modeller Workbook (in PDF) by Izmeth Sideek is posted soon. At the end of the first part it says "In the next part we will start to customize our Peacemaker by adding some engraving.".

The first part was excellet!!!

This looks like a job for normal maps on a retopo / autopo uved object

Here's a video on using voxels to generate normal maps but it is something you can paint/texture in the Paint room using a layer with a depth channel

-Search inet for some vector floral patterns.
- Convert to bitmap
- invert, black is 0... white is the engrave pattern
- add the images in voxel room like textures
- increase volume voxel resolution as needed
- pressing Ctrl use Extrude tool, draw selecting the option with constant deep and radius,,, and deep limit = 1
- i had used 10 textures to achieve this, was a fast test.

-> the key is to have a good grey bitmap... trial and error give you the knowledge

Regards ! :)
