We have developed a gold like powder blend of metals creating a durable realistic gold effect which is virtually indistinguishable from real gold. We developed this application of the gold effect due to the high demand for the lower cost product.

This gold effect process can be accomplished thanks to polymer technology and fine metal grinding techniques keeping within the traditional concept but with state-of-the art process and materials. These materials are stronger and have greater longevity than the ancient lacquer methodology. We use a proprietary mix of metals encapsulated within an oxygen-free and water-resistant clear compound, which is highly resistant to scratches and any sort of erosion. The gold effect is created with a mix of pure powder consisting of brass, copper, and zinc.

Kintsugi Art Technique Additional Options:

In addition to the straight gold line along the repair areas, there are other styles of gold repair. If the broken piece is missing a section, it can be repaired with a technique known as makienaoshi. This is where gold replaces the lost section and is decorated with the texture or design complementing the pattern of the item. Another related gold repair is called yobitsugi where ceramic parts from a different and unrelated vessel are glued into the broken or missing area of the restored piece.
