Learn all you need to know about Urushi in the Beginner’s Guide to Japanese Urushi.
For centuries this classic Japanese art form has been popular among lacquerware artisans, who have prized the natural qualities of Urushi sap for its ability to enhance, harden and protect items such as pottery, wood, bamboo and even paper.
The Beginner’s Guide to Japanese Urushi introduces you to this natural lacquer’s history, potential uses, different types, safe handling practices, the types of tools used for application. (Specific urushi techniques are not mentioned.)
This booklet explores the natural product that has, until now, only been available to professional artisans.
