Natural Kintsugi Repair Kit

175,00 €Price

This Kintsugi kit uses only Ki-urushi lacquer, the most natural type of lacquer, made of lacquer sap from which impurities have been removed. To repair broken pottery, earth is mixed with lacquer to fill a crack, then some flour and sawdust is added in order to refill the broken part. The ivory-colored lacquer freshly taken from lacquer trees changes to a transparent candy-color when exposed to air. It turns red when naturel pigment such as Bengara is added.


This kit was created to pass on traditional knowledge and laquer reparation techniques. Everything needed to introduce a lifestyle of restoring precious ceramics that were once broken. This natural laquer kit will prepare you to start your journey of Kintsugi reparation.
