Everything you will require to explore and experiment with using a traditional approach to kintsugi. The enclosed Instruction sheet and step by step photographs found on my website offer detailed description of the method. The entire process can be viewed on my youtube videos.

There are two alternative kits: Sterling silver and 24 kt. Gold.
Both kits contain:
A tube of red urushi
A tube of black urushi
A tube of ki-urushi (raw un-dyed urushi)
Natural mixing powders (including Tonoko)
A variety of tools for filling and burnishing
+ please select from one of the following options:
1g of Sterling silver leaf powder
0.15g of 23 kt. Gold leaf fine powder
NB. Brass powder is ideal for developing and practicing kintsugi skills, but it does not provide a food safe finish, which both silver and gold powders will provide.
The Gold kit includes fine gold leaf powder which is easily applied to a repair. This fine gold power does not require any polishing and is easy to use compared to coarse leaf gold powder. A more resilient gold finish is achieved by using 24kt. Coarse gold leaf powder, this requires careful polishing and skill of application. I only use coarse gold leaf powder in my own professional repair work as it gives a more durable result. 24 kt. Coarse gold leaf powder is available for purchase separately. If you are thinking to master coarse gold leaf powder, try silver because work is the same as Coarse gold leaf powder and practice with silver first.
To keep your urushi fresh, please store it in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator, as soon as you receive your package.
I am always pleased to offer customers technical after-sales support by email or video call.
