White Ceramic Stone Aromatherapy Diffuser

Ever break a beloved dish (or your Stone Diffuser) and fret over the idea of throwing it away? Those broken pieces can be transformed into an even more spectacular (and stronger) piece with the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi

What is Kintsugi?

Kintsugi translates to “golden repair” and describes the process of rejoining broken ceramic pieces with gold adhesive to create a new, elegant work of art. The simple process is a great way to champion sustainability, practice creativity, and prolong the life of your ceramics. With just a few materials and steps, you too can enjoy Kintsugi. 

Kintsugi Materials

  • Broken pieces of your ceramic object

  • Clear epoxy resin

  • Gold mica powder or liquid gold leaf

  • Thin disposable paint brush

    How to make Kintsugi Pottery Art

        1. Gather the pieces and arrange them in your desired configuration 

        2. Mix 2 parts epoxy resin with 1park gold maca powder. If you’re using liquid gold leaf skip this step

        3. Carefully glue the pieces back together with your small paintbrush and epoxy mixture

        4. Sprinkle additional mica powder on top of the cracks when it’s almost dried to brighten the gold. If you’re using liquid gold leaf, wait until the adhesive has dried for 10 minutes and then paint the gold leaf on the cracks

        5. Wait two days for the adhesive to dry completely before using the ceramic once again

        6. If you’re going for a more polished look, use an exacto knife to scrape off the thick layer of the resin, once it’s dried. 

    You can now enjoy your new, functional piece of art ! At Savhera, we love Kintsugi because it champions the idea that from brokenness, beauty can arise.
