Kintsugi Plate: How to Fix a Broken Plate (the Cool Way with Kintsugi)
Fix a Broken Plate with Kintsugi
We've all been there. Accidentally knocked over one of our beloved plates, pottery or glassware. The worst feeling in the world as you look at the ground with literally nothing you can do! Until NOW!
We've got the Kintsugi Repair Kit, now your saying Claudia, what is Kintsugi.... It's he 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.
Sound good? :)
Take a look at our latest creations of what it looks like for yourself.
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.
Plates no longer need to be thrown out... it's now all about turning them into the most beautiful tableware anyone has ever seen! Hands down beautiful.
