Anyone know where is a good place to purchase cashew Urushi in USA?



I am interested to do a small Urushi DIY project.


After some research, it looks like cashew Urushi should be easier to acquire in USA and less toxic to work with.


The only place I have found so far would be hyper-café. However, it looks like their Shitaji kit (the base coat) and some other colors are sold out.


I tried emailing them, but never got a response. So just curious, what are some sources we can get cashew Urushi in USA, if not… where can we get some Japanese Urushi 


(amazon seem to have some from Mejiro) but their official web site does not ship to USA IIRC
