This DVD guides you through the Suri Urushi technique, from general basic knowledge right through to the actual application. The traditional Japanese art of lacquering is over 6000 years old. Learn how to create a special gloss on bowls, boxes, handles, jewellery or furniture. Once fully hardened, Urushi is resistant to water, heat, alcohol, acids, alkaline solutions and solvents as well as ageing. It is also food-safe. Subtitles in English and German.
