This kind of glass is manufactured by ejecting sand or an abrasive material at a very high speed on the glass. The sand scratches the layer of glass; the intensity at which the sand is forced on the surface determines whether it will be a high or medium level translucent glass. During the process of sandblasting the areas that shall remain transparent are masked and the other areas that are to be etched are exposed. Ultimately the surface that is created is very rough and has a layered effect.
