You don’t need an art degree to transform ordinary objects into wonderful one-of-a-kind works of art.
You just need Unicorn Spit!
Unicorn Spit is the new non-toxic rainbow gel stain and glaze we are selling at our shop, All Things New Again, in Leesburg, VA and right here in our online store.
It is easy to use—on just about anything.
You can use Unicorn Spit on metal.
This is great for candlesticks, picture frames, mirrors and old metal plates you can repurpose as magnetic message boards.
SPIT TIP: Apply chalk-type paint or Mod Podge first and let it dry. This will allow the Unicorn Spit to stick to the surface better.
You can use Unicorn Spit on ordinary old clay flowerpots.
Now is a great time to do this project! Your pots will be so pretty when you are ready to plant them again in the spring.
(Just make sure you seal the inside of the pots first so the water doesn’t seep through the clay and ruin your design. Also be sure to seal with an outdoor, water-proof, oil-based sealer.)
You can use Unicorn Spit as a stain on bare wood to reveal the beauty of the wood grain. Instead of brown stain, you can choose a vibrant color or blend many vibrant colors together like Mom of the Year Courtney did on this ordinary oak table from the 1990’s that almost didn’t fit into her car, but she jammed it on top of her child and drove home really slow because the wood grain was so awesome she just had to have it.
She sanded the tabletop down to bare wood and applied many colors of Unicorn Spit with her hands. (It’s non-toxic. You can do that!) It is so therapeutic to just dip your hand into the jar and swirl the colors around until you like how they look all blended together.
Unicorn Spit is a stain, but it is also a glaze. You can apply it over paint to give furniture a rich, dimensional look. Cathy applied purple Unicorn Spit over these bright blue legs from a vintage sewing machine. You can see in this picture the effect of the purple on the front leg verses the other bright blue legs. The Unicorn Spit toned down the blue and created an ombre look. It is a very pretty effect that, unfortunately, is not showing up as nicely in the photos as it does in person.
You can also create beautiful abstract designs on your pieces using a variety of techniques. No art school degree required! Cathy used a technique called the Side-by-Side Aura Blast on the wooden tray she married with those blue and purple legs to create a new stand for her printer. This is one of the techniques we teach in our Introduction to Unicorn Spit class at All Things New Again. Click here for details.
Whatever YOU do with Unicorn Spit, it is sure to look awesome!
