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(1603-). If you want to repair your broken ceramics quickly, we recommend epoxy or super-glue.
This kit comes with low allergenic urushi lacquers. The risk of an allergic reaction is extremely low due to the addition of a special protein substance that coats the urushi and safeguards it from skin exposure.
