You have heard about kintsugi, the amazing Japanese art of repairing broken pottery or porcelain using urushi lacquer and gold or silver powder. You may have already tried with one set (perhaps one of those available here at Japan Trend Shop) and now you want to upgrade to something extra, something that allows you to do even more intricate repair work on more delicate items and build up your technique. In other words, something like the Kijimatsu Kintsugi Super Set!
The Kijimatsu Kintsugi Super Set is a kintsugi craft toolkit that contains a vast array of tools, including three different brushes, a hobby knife, different types of spatulas, scissors and a file, a mini workbench to set your workshop as well as raw urushi lacquer, black and red iron oxide powder, and both gold and silver powder to give your repairs that characteristic look that gives the craft its name ("kin" means "gold" and "tsugi" means "repair"). The set is suitable for beginner and intermediate levels.
