Kupetz experimentierte in der frühen Zeit bei der WMF mit Salmiakfärbungen auf Messinggegenständen und unregelmäßigen Lochungen, integrierte ab den 1960er Jahren auch Ätzdekore nach Entwurf seiner Frau Sigrid Kupetz und entwickelte mit ihr ein Pressglas, das ein lebhaftes Kerbmuster aufwies. Es kam für Glaseinsätze zur Ausführung, die er mit seinen schlichten Cromargantellern kombinierte, oder für ein Whiskey-Set – aus Eiseimer, Damen- und Herrenbechern bestehend –, das eine gewisse Berühmtheit erlangte, weil Louis Armstrong es für das Beste der Welt hielt.
