There was an article in Electronics Australia (IIRC) about 7-8 years ago on
doing this with a plotter. The author used a special pen that fitted the
plotter, but I cannot remember what ink he used. It was reasonably
successful IIRC. Be alright for getting a one-off PCB for in house etching.

IIRC the pen was made by Staedtler, the draughting instrument people, and
had a ceramic tip designed for plotting on vellum, or some other highly
abrasive draughting medium.
