I've never attempted etching before, but is there a way to etch in color? Or is it white/opaque because it's basically scratching the glass?

It is opaque of the color of the glass you're etching. Unless you would then do an alcohol ink over the etch, but that would kind of ruin the etch effect.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Or, if you really want colour, another option would be to use glass paints and paint the inside of the glass, and etch the outside if you want that tactile frosting.  Otherwise, I would just go with the glass paints period.
