【What is Alternative Finishing Powder?】
Alternative finishing powder is made of copper and zinc, no gold. However, we picked the one whose color is very similar to the genuine gold powder and which was produced in the same process of our genuine gold with the highest quality by the same manufacture of gold. (See photos)
As copper and zinc is cheaper than gold, in total, this kit has the largest amount of powder for the finishing step but the price is very reasonable. Therefore, if you would like to practice more kintsugi on your items, this kit is useful.
The manufacture of the alternative finishing powder says it is not recommended for dishes to serve food, so you can use it to repair that will not be near food. (such as ornaments, pottery/ceramics for decoration use)
You can buy many kinds of alternative finishing powder in the world, but please note that most are not proofed as food-safe.
