A complete starter kit in the traditional Japanese art of kintsugi (golden repair). Transform your favourite broken ceramics into new works of art with lacquer, gold powder (0.3 g) and silver powder (0.5 g), technique and patience. The instructions (including a link to YouTube videos), tools and supplies in this kit, along with a few household items are all you need to create your own works of art from ceramics that you would otherwise discard. Your favourite teacup that was dropped and is now cracked, that sentimental broken serving plate that’s been in the family for generations or the beautiful teapot with the broken spout can be saved and made new. A great opportunity to participate in the Japanese ceramic – and philosophical – tradition of kintsugi. Celebrate flaws and imperfections from a new perspective.
This kit has more gold and silver powder than most and will allow you significant opportunity to practice and repair. The materials included in the kit are all natural and food-safe once hardened.
