A beautifully lacquered object is simply captivating.



This Fuki Urushi DIY Kit comes with everything you need to do your own beautiful lacquering. The Fuki urushi lacquering technique works to highlight the natural beauty of woodgrain. In fact, Urushi is one of the most durable natural lacquers known to man and has long been used in Japan. Urushi lacquered ornaments and objects have been discovered in Japan dating from the Jomon period, which was roughly 9,000 years ago. The fact that this technique is still in use today is a true testament to its beauty.

Caution: Some people might have allergic reactions to urushi lacquer. In case your skin is exposed to urushi, wash it off with cooking oil immediately, then use soap to clean further.
