● Handling of the vessel after repair

●Do not use over open flames, microwaves, or ovens. ●Cannot be used directly over fire. ●If you leave it in the refrigerator or freezer, it may cause deterioration. - Leaving it soaked or soaking it in something with moisture for a long time may cause it to peel off. Please refrain from leaving it on. ●When washing the utensils, do not use a dishwasher or dish dryer, but wash them gently with a soft sponge dampened with neutral dish detergent. ●If something hits the kintsugi part, it may cause wear or peeling of the decorative part. ●The strength of the repaired product will be weaker than its original state, so please be careful not to hold the repaired part or put any stress on it. We especially recommend storing broken items without stacking them. ●The strength will increase if you leave it for about a month after completion. We recommend that you wait to use it for a longer time.

● Items that will become unusable after repair

Based on the above, the following items can no longer be used for their intended purposes. ● Earthenware pots etc. cannot be used directly over fire. ●It will no longer be possible to use pots, vases, teapots, etc. with water in them for long periods of time. ●Thin handles such as mug handles, wine glass stems, and cutlery cannot be used by holding them.

● Notes

●Lacquer is a natural product. Please avoid high temperatures, especially in the summer, and store in a cool, dark place such as a refrigerator. ●To maintain quality, we recommend using up the product as soon as possible. It will dry more slowly over time. ●As the repair method uses real lacquer, there is a possibility of a rash. Please wear gloves when working. If you experience symptoms of a rash, please consult your doctor. ●Please note that we are not responsible for any rash caused by using this kit. ●The time it takes to complete a piece varies greatly depending on the shape of the item to be kintsugi, how it is damaged, the season, temperature, and humidity. ●Number of processes = not the number of days until completion. Due to the time it takes for the lacquer to harden and the process to be repeated several times, it may take more than two months to complete.
