Abstract (en)

Decoration (12) is applied to a first support with release characteristics. It is transferred from the first to a second support (14). This support (14) is laid onto a liquid (18). The object (22) is pressed into the decoration as the latter floats on the liquid, completing transfer. Preferred features: The second support dissolves (or is released) into the liquid, leaving the colored decoration. This support comprises material dissolving in the liquid without adversely affecting decoration. Following transfer to the second support, a lacquer coating is applied onto the colored decoration. The lacquer is suitable to form a primer for the object and is colored.
