Please know Kintsugi repair is a form of Japanese art, not just a DIY repair method. It has a long history which was practiced by our ancestors from Edo era (year 1603 to 1868) If you want to repair your broken ceramics quickly, go with epoxy or super-glue instead.
Kintsugi (also known as Kintsukuroi) literally translates as "golden joinery." Fixing prized and valuable pottery/porcelain is nothing short of an art form in Japan, and the Kintsugi Repair Kit has everything that you need to fix broken pottery/porcelain. With this kit, you will repair in a traditional method using real Urushi lacquers without any artificial materials! With our Kit, it is possible to effectively repair damaged pottery/porcelain.

Caution: Urushi lacquer is actually the sap of a tree that grows in East Asia. It is a natural substance that forms a clear, hard and waterproof surface when dried properly. Although Urushi contains a compound that can cause a reaction similar to poison ivy. Mejiro Co. will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to Urushi.
