Kintsugi Kit for Starters.
Kintsugi starter kit. Including top quality urushi from Kyoto, brass powder, glue, putty, brushes, etc. All tools are selected carefully by Kintsugi Oxford, a kintsugi repair studio in Oxford.
It comes with instruction sheet, which contains information on how to use the kit which is also available on my web. This set included a packet of brass powder. If you would like your kintsugi food safe, please check kintsugi kits with silver or gold in my shop.
Full support will be available through email and video call. Please ask for more detail.
"To keep your urushi fresh, please store it in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator, as soon as you receive your package.
Q: Is this set Food safe?
Epoxy is not certified as food safe, neither are traditional kintsugi materials such as stone powder and sawdust. By sealing the joint of your completed repair with the genuine urushi I provide, it becomes safe to use for food and drink. If you would like to use your items for food, please try a kit with silver or gold.
NB. The urushi my starter kit includes, comes from a specialist Japanese supplier and is food safe, however, but not all urushi, especially written as “something Urushi” are not food safe. Please check it with sellers . Brass is not food safe, so if your repair is finished with brass powder, it will not be food safe. Urushi finished with sterling silver or 24kt.gold will provide a completely food safe surface. A food safe repair can also be achieved by simply coating the glued joint with urushi alone.
