    Draw a sketch on the center plane of the image, then extrude sketch using offset from surface and select the outer surface, set the distance you require the image to protude. If you modeled the cup using revolve you will have to do a revolve cut to clear the inside of the cup afterwards or create the cup with a solid center to start with then revolve cut the inside afterwards.
