This is actually very creative and looks very beautiful and it is a kind of creativity that adds style to your dine and makes it look very attractive, we can create such designs on different glasswares like glass dishes, plates and even bowls to give that look.

You can use a rotary hand tool like a Dremel and etch on glass, if you do not want to make a stencil and chemically etch with Armour etch. 

If you want to paint, you can use the permanent oven bakeable paints, like Pebeo Vitrea or Porcelaine and paint on the glass.

Get the paints in the bottles, they do come in light colours, including white.  The markers are more limited in colours available.

Here is the link to their glass paint - Vitrea 160 - the colour chart is in the lower left in red; it has a silver shimmer paint, a glossy white, and a frosted white.  It is more translucent than the Porcelaine 150:

It will probably suit your needs more than the Porcelaine 150.  They also sell a diluant for their paints too, so if you want it more translucent, or thinner for a finer draw, you can thin it.

Here is the Porcelaine 150 link
http://en.pebeo.com/index.php/Creative-leisure/Decorate-surfaces/Porcelaine-150

The Gallery Glass and other paints like that in the craft store won't do, because they are surface decoration.  This paint (and I am sure there are other brands, but this is what I have used and am happy with consistently), once baked, is permanent enough to wash.  I am not sure about the food safety though, so look into that before putting it where food/drink may touch.  Until it is baked, it is water soluble.  I have used another bakeable paint, but I bought that years and years ago off a shopping channel and have not seen it since.  But it was not as good quality, and would bubble.

oh my!
do you rock or do you rock? Cheesy

thanks for the so specific answer. now that i know exactly what i'm looking for - it'll be much easier trying to find them locally!

eta:
i've seen this note about the paint:
"Only the areas not intended to be put in contact with food must be decorated. "
- doesnt that mean that it isnt really food safe? or that food of some kind may take it off?

I would presume it means it is not completely food safe.  It probably can be chipped off, but I have not seen that happen myself (I have one coaster that I painted proably about 8 years ago and it's fine and I am not the most gentle person sometimes).  So if you want to paint glasses or something, maybe leave a half inch lip around the top, and if painting bowls, mugs, do the outside only.

yeah, i guess that if i'm gonna do glass - it doesnt really matter which side would i paint over Smiley
i cant wait to try it!

how about the porcelain? is it kinda the same thing just for porcelain? like washing-safe, but not really suppose to be in the mug itself?
i havent decided yet which way to go ...

Yes, if I remember correctly - so paint the outside of mugs, leaving a rim, bowls, the very edges of plates, etc, unless they are decoration only.  This can also be used on metal, though it may collect into droplets on some surfaces, so you may need to sand so that the paint has something to grip.
