Description

Some collectors even deliberately started smashing their pottery so the porcelain could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi. You do not need a large amount of mica powder to dye the epoxy to a bright metallic shade, so start with a conservative pinch. If you don’t give the 2 pieces time to cure, the entire repair job may shatter in your hands when you apply pressure to the next piece you’re adding.

The art of kintsugi is closely related to the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which is the belief that accepting imperfection leads to enlightenment, beauty, and transcendence. If you're not sure if you're ready to commit to a kintsugi kit, or if you just want to try it out for a short time, our Starter Kit is perfect for you. If you love gold and know that you'll be using it for the majority of your kintsugi projects, this is the kit for you.Swirl the mixture around in a circular motion for 30-45 seconds until the powder mixes thoroughly into the epoxy. Attaching each broken piece requires a fair bit of pressure, so you have to wait for the first 2 pieces to dry entirely before you add any additional pieces.

Always work in a way where you’re adding the piece that is adjacent to the previous section, closest to the piece you started with. Do not use the porcelain repaired in oven or microwave, but handle it with care and wash each item by hand.Kintsugi is an ancient Japanese technique that involves repairing broken pottery with natural materials like genuine lacquer and gold powder to make it more beautiful than ever. The art of kintsugi became so popular that collectors deliberately started smashing up valuable pottery… so it could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi. If this is your first attempt at kinstugi, use a broken ceramic item that isn’t particularly important to you.

On a good kintsugi repair job, none of the epoxy and mica powder should be sticking out past the surface of the crack. Gently squeeze the pieces together and make any minor adjustments immediately to line the pieces up perfectly. You can use a piece of wax paper or aluminum foil if you don’t have a good plastic receptacle for this.He was the winner of the Paul Carroll award for outstanding achievement in creative writing in 2014, and he was a featured reader at the Poetry Foundation’s Open Door Reading Series in 2015. jpg","smallWidth":460,"smallHeight":345,"bigWidth":728,"bigHeight":546,"licensing":"

If you have a ton of epoxy left over, it’s a sign that you should mix less of it the next time you do this! But we also know that when something breaks, it doesn't have to mean the end—it can mean a new beginning!
