Precaution

Is it true that Urushi Lacquer can cause a rash?

Yes, urushi lacquer causes a severe rash when getting it on the skin.

How many items can be repaired with this kit?

However, the actual number of items that can be repaired depends on the size of the damage.
If you want to repair more items, you will need additional gold powder.

But it is not suitable for items that are directly exposed to fire, as this will damage the urushi lacquer.

Highly recommend !

The communication while planning the order and the handling of it couldn't have been better! The delivery arrived safely, everything was intact. I have not tried the kit yet, because I am watching the tutorial videos first - and they are extremely helpful.
