For some time I've been considering trying my hand at this art of pottery repair with lacquer and gold / silver dust.  For various reasons, this seems like an opportune moment.

I am aware of the potential dangers of urushi lacquer, though I understand some sources now offer low-allergy urushi, or even recommend modern adhesive substitutes.

Do we have any kintsugi practitioners here who might offer suggestions for someone just starting off?  As I'm based in Canada, I'd also be interested in any North American sources for the supplies...  shipping and duties on imports from Japan are starting to be killing, particularly considering the value of the Yen / Canadian dollar. 

Thanks!
