how are your hand painting skills ?
with a small project like that, you could finish sanding
and apply your clear coat, then hand paint the engraved
graphics with small brushes with very little bleeding of the black paint.
[filling any of the selected voids with epoxy is a separate project].

as for the torch idea, you can engrave some similar graphics on similar wood
with the hand-held router (no need for the CNC for a test panel).
with the torch, the top edges will burn, some of the bottom of the graphics
will brown, the deep corners and recesses will not be affected very much (if at all).
so in essence, you will not be satisfied with the burning technique.
