NOTE: We regret that the TURPENTINE OIL included in our Kintsugi Repair Kit is now prohibited from export from Japan therefore we cannot ship abroad.
The good news is that it is usually available at your local art supply/hardware store.
We now replace the TURPENTINE OIL in our kit with Fuki Urushi Paper. Thank you for your understanding.

Caution: Urushi lacquer is actually the sap of a tree that grows in East Asia. It is a natural substance that forms a clear, hard and waterproof surface when dried properly. Although Urushi contains a compound that can cause a reaction similar to poison ivy, proper handling (gloves and long-sleeve shirt), and working in a well-ventilated area will prevent an allergic reaction. Urushi is a natural material and does not contain toxic chemical additives.
