    It is possible to apply liquid Urushi lacquer to almost any surface, including ceramic, metal, wood and even cloth. Once hardened it provides a very hard, waterproof layer of protection against mildew, mold, and the effects of weathering. It has even proven to provide protection against substances such as acid that can be quite caustic to most surfaces. Urushi lacquer is heatproof up to 100 to 120 Celsius.

    Caution: Urushi lacquer is actually the sap of a tree that grows in East Asia. It is a natural substance that forms a clear, hard and waterproof surface when dried properly. Although Urushi contains a compound that can cause a reaction similar to poison ivy, proper handling (gloves and long-sleeve shirt), and working in a well-ventilated area will prevent an allergic reaction. Urushi is a natural material and does not contain toxic chemical additives.
