Der Schein trügt. (The seem deceive.)
Drinkingglasses with growing scratch mark decor

These glasses get their quality as a result of using. In the course of time, ornaments and graphic patterns become visible.
Filmy synthetic application is partly coated on a common drinkingglass. This application at first is lucent. It’s tactile but invisible. Heat-resistant till 80°C itŽs washers proof.
The manual cleaning scratches the synthetic whereas the washer beclouds it. In this way the decor becomes more and more visible in a milky opaque way.
