There is so much beauty in taking something that is broken and giving it a new purpose. As a clumsy creative, I’ve broken my fair share of ceramic goods. My heart breaks a little each time I have to pick up the pieces and toss them in the trash.
Luckily, my friends at Mora Approved introduced me to their amazing Kintsugi DIY Repair Kit. This kit allows you to restore your broken ceramics with a gorgeous gold filler! I was able to fix up a couple of my broken ceramics and turned them into beautiful planters.
What is Kintsugi?
If you’ve never heard of Kintsugi, then let me introduce you! The ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi means “golden joinery”. It’s all about taking the broken/ugly and making it into something beautiful and new. Broken ceramics and pottery can be fixed with a gold filler, leaving each piece with a unique design.
The Kintsugi kit is super simple to use and comes with:
– Mixing Sticks
Step 1: Using the instructions in the kit, mix the gold powder and glue together.
Step 2: Add the glue along the cracks and press the pieces together. Give it about 10 mins to dry. It should be dry, but still a little bit sticky.
Step 3: Dust more gold powder over the glue to add even more shimmer and shine! Wait 48 hours of the adhesive to completely set!
Step 4: Take your favorite succulent or cactus and pop it into your newly restored planter!
I’m absolutely in love with the gold design! I wouldn’t mind if I broke a few more things around my house! The glue is also completely non-toxic. That means that you can eat and drink off of the repaired pieces.
