Kintsugi (or Kintsukuroi) is the Japanese art of using lacquer, mixed with silver, gold, or metalic powders to repair broken pottery/porcelain. The philosophy behind this technique is to treat the repair as part of the object’s history as opposed to treating the repair as something to hide as if it never happened.
You will repair in a traditional method using real urushi lacquers, without any artificial materials.With the Kintsugi Repair Kit, it is possible to effectively repair damaged pottery/porcelains. The resulting repaired pottery will be both visually appealing and durable as well. The Japanese have been using lacquering techniques for approximately 9,000 years, and this skill and art form is still valued to this day.

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. Urushi contains a compound that can cause a reaction similar to poison ivy, so please take necessary measures to protect yourself.
