Light brownish raw lacquer.  100g.
To be mixed with the tonoko powder for making the shakuhachi's interior "ji"  Spread the mixture as thinly as possible a number of times, avoiding thick coats.
 
Two Urushi are ALWAYS required for Kintsugi repair: Seshime Pure and Neri Bengara Urushi.
Substitute of this kind is UM0203 "Low Allergy Urushi Lacquer, Pure 100g"
 
It is also known in Japan that any natural whetstone's backside needs to be reinforced with Urushi paintings. Pure (Seshime) Urushi is applied for this purposes.
Depending on how much strength you want, 3--10 painting are normally required.
Please remember, one Urushi lacquring takes 4--7 days to dry in a drying cabinet called "Muro," so this can be a long process.
 

NOTE: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.
