How to make a resist

I'm working on my first Damascus knife. In the past, I've always electro-etched my maker's mark on my blades. I don't have a maker's mark punch yet. I'm worried about how to apply my maker's mark on this blade. I see three options. First, I could etch my mark deeply before etching the Damascus. Second is to etch it after etching the Damascus. Third is to use some kind of resist in the shape of my mark, etch the Damascus and then pull the resist and etch my mark in the clear area. In my mind's eye, I think the third option would be the best. However, I have no idea how to make the resist. Here's my maker's mark:

I think it would be best to make an oval slightly larger than the mark but am at a loss as to how to do it.
