Why hide the cracks when you can make them beautiful?
From The Netherlands (home of ceramic delftware) comes this innovative product from the ladies at Humade. With the New Kintsugi Repair Kit, you not only get to salvage that beloved chipped or broken ceramic plate, but you also get to reinvigorate it with this gorgeous gold filler. The ancient Japanese art of kintsugi, which means “golden joinery”, is all about turning ugly breaks into beautiful fixes - proposing that repair can make things better than new.
So how does it work? A gold dust is mixed with an adhesive. Then you simply use the gold adhesive to fix the cracks and/or breaks! Then wait 48 hours for the adhesive to set and your previously-broken piece is ready to use again. The glue is non-toxic, so it's safe to eat or drink off repaired items. To retain the gold colour it is not advised to place items in the dishwasher.
The Kintsugi Kit is now also available in SILVER.
POSTAGE: 1 KIT = £5 (EUROPE/US/CANADA)
Postage weight: 0.2kg
The Kintsugi Kit contains:
- Bison Epoxy Fastglue 24ml
- Bison Epoxy Putty
- Gold powder
- Paint brush
- Mixing Sticks
One kit can repair approximately eight normal plates as per the images, with 3 full cracks. The glue is epoxy based and can also be used to fix wood.
