A Dremel will work great. That's exactly what I did with this little pewter key chain Ford logo. It was all silver. I painted in the blue then sanded the raised lettering then used a Dremel buffing wheel and compound. I shot a couple of coats of clear over it when it was done. It's been on the front of the car for a long time and starting to show some age now but still looks okay.
