Kintsugi Kit for Starters, with Gold or Silver.
Kintsugi kit for Starters with gold or silver
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.
If you would like to repair your plates you might try with silver or gold finish just after practice brass powder.
+ 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 which is easily applied to a repair. This fine gold power does not require any polishing and is easy to use compared to coarse 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.
Full support will be available through email and video call. Please ask for more detail.
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 and still metal coated, use this 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 22-24kt.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.
