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.

Provided a perfect starting place

Very happy with my kinsugi kit. I have started about five pieces to repair- am excited to see the first finished ones, but it is a process. A great lesson in slowing down. The textures I see with my mixes do not quite look like what is in the video and the quantities are small but sufficient. Thank you for the prompt delivery.
