金缮 Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken items by mending the areas of breakage with urushi lacquer followed by dusting with powdered gold.
We collaborated with a master restorer and multi-generation urushi lacquer craftsmen to bring you the most authentic version of a Kintsugi Kit. Together with a free online course, this kit allows you to practice the Japanese Art of Repair from the comfort of your home.
Many videos circulating on the internet show a version of Kintsugi that doesn’t use the traditional technique or material, often resulting in repairs that do not last. Anything you fix with this technique will be completely food safe and can be used with hot liquids once the Urushi has properly dried.

Urushi is completely natural but contains a compound that can cause an allergic reaction similar to poison ivy. Proper handling like wearing gloves and a long-sleeve shirt and thoroughly washing areas that came in contact with the compound will prevent an allergic reaction. If you accidentally touch Urushi, wipe the area with turpentine immediately and wash with soap. If you do develop a rash, do not touch the area and consult your doctor immediately for medical attention. Putting on lotion will also help protect the skin. POJ Studio will not be liable for any adverse reactions caused by Urushi.
