IMHO glass should not be painted, it should be colored through using colored glass and developing pattern that way

Wish it was that easy, especially in Egypt. KM does not make vases. They are all outsourced to one of the few companies which make glass in Egypt and unfortunately painted glass will chip or rub off sooner or later regardless of the KM stamp on the glass. Just shoot us an email and we will take care of you.

wish what was that easy? you mean using colored glass to make a pattern on it? it is much more easy than painting it, you just cannot get the same designs. honestly a heat shrink plastic or a sticker will make a better looking, longer lasting applied design

My guess is its cheaper to paint clear glass than to produce color glass.

eh, idk, over there maybe, just due to the shipping of premade colored glass.

many bases are colored glass though at least just a solid color so i think its just because they can put more of a centric painting on it is why they paint instead of just use colored glass which is harder to develop a really complex pattern/shape/etc

That started happening to mine that I got from thehookah.com. I took paint thinner and stripped it all off. Like it better that way, especially since the minipic on the website looks good, but the actual vase when you get it looks like a 5th grade art project :/
