Kintsugi Interest

If interested, there will be a fee involved to pay for materials used.

Kintsugi (“golden joinery”), also known as kintsukuroi (“golden repair”), is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique.

This would be good for that poor owl in the last glaze firing.

Believe @Pcperk has done this a few times…

He would be the one teaching it. I am trying to see if there is anyone else aside from me that would be interested.

The materials needed are Japanese, but I buy them at a better price from a Portugal supplier. It takes 2-3 weeks to get them here. The material cost would be $15 per person for 4 people. Less if we have more participants.

With our current classes seeing so many no shows, (possibly due do to weather issues), I’m more comfortable posting a class and getting commitments and payment rather than buying materials upfront.
I’ll get a class up for mid-March.

You can require instructor approval and have them paypal you the $ first before you approve them. I have found this to be VERY effective.

You get the same effect with 2 part epoxy and gold mica power mixed in. I’ve done this last year with my students.

That’s a good alternative!
However, I think this bunch wants to strive for authenticity.
