Be sure to wear gloves while working.

When treating urushi, be aware of allergic reactions to urushiol, which is contained in urushi. Urushi can cause skin irritation when it is wet, but once completely hardened, urushi is perfectly food-safe and is one of the most durable natural materials.

It is important to always wear rubber gloves when treating lacquer. The use of rubber gloves and arm covers prevents urushi from touching the skin. However, because lacquer vaporizes in miniscule amounts, people who easily get rashes from poison ivy or mango may get severely irritated even when wearing rubber gloves. In the unlikely event that you touch the lacquer or become irritated by it, please consult a physician and seek immediate medical attention.

Chimahaga is not responsible for any health problems caused by treating lacquer. Please be very careful when treating urushi.

Good for single person

The kit serves well for single person. It does have limited utility for group purposes or when you need a resupply kit for subsequent use. Consider creating additional packages for that purpose.

Excellent

I am very happy with my first kintsugi experience. I wonder if it is possible to order parts of this set and not a whole set. The seller is extremely kind and helpful and promptly answered all the questions.
