Japanese kintsugi repair was originally developed to mend broken ceramics using natural urushi lacquers. Wood and stone are also possible to repair; however, epoxy is generally the easiest and quickest method for fixing broken glasses.
If you wish to perform a glass kintsugi, you should use a special urushi lacquer that is meant for glassware. Glassware kintsugi is incredibly challenging for beginners and should not be attempted without experience. We strongly recommend that you practice a standard kintsugi before moving on to glass repair.
Kintsugi (or Kintsukuroi) is the Japanese art of using urushi lacquer, mixed with genuine gold to repair broken pottery and 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. The resulting repaired pottery will be both visually appealing and durable as well.
