Hey Clive, looks fun to work with urushi... I can't stand the stuff. I get one of the worst rashes from it. I did a course wich I had to stop because of that. How does it work for you? Did you get blisters when you started to work with the urushi?

Ouch, looks painful Bart. So far I've been fortunate with urushi.. but I'm told that one can even after years of working with it suddenly develop sensitivity. :shock:

Oo! Nasty. Looks like a case of artists suffering for the cause!
