Food Safe

This kit uses natural urushi lacquer and real gold, so it is safe to use on dishes.

It does not contain any epoxy resin or alternative gold powder that is harmful to the body.

Great for a gift

Mizuhiki(水引き), a traditional Japanese gift wrapping technique, is attached to the package.

Precaution

Is it true that Urushi Lacquer can cause a rash?

Yes, urushi lacquer causes a severe rash when getting it on the skin.
So, be sure to wear gloves while using this kit.

Does the Urushi Lacquer lose its allergenic properties after it has cured?

After the Urushi lacquer is completely dry, it is harmless to the human body.

How many items can be repaired with this kit?

You can repair about 5 chipped items or 1~2 broken items.
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.

Is it ok for hot liquids or foods?

Yes, urushi lacquer becomes very robust when it hardens.
But it is not suitable for items that are directly exposed to fire, as this will damage the urushi lacquer.

Is kintsugi appropriate for a glass item?

Glass is not suitable for kintsugi because urushi lacquer does not work well.

Is it microwave or dishwasher safe?

No, urushi lacquer is not microwave/dishwasher resistant.

Responsiveness

My order got haulted for a while at our local Customs, took a while to be cleared and didn't get any update. So I messaged him if he would know any update. He's very responsive and was willing to refund due to inconvenience and delays. Just got my package today and yet to open but I'm glad and satisfied of the after-purchase service making sure the package arrives or I'm fulfilled/satisfied with the purchase. Thank you!!!
