Now if you have never heard of Unicorn Spit before, the best way to explain it is to show you how awesome it is. This is the latest Unicorn Spit project from Heather who took our class over the summer.

heather_unicorn-spit-bench_logoUnicorn Spit transforms ordinary objects into one-of-a-kind works of art. Used as a stain over bare, sanded-down wood, the beautiful Unicorn Spit colors soak into the wood while still revealing the grain.

But Unicorn Spit is also a glaze. That means you can apply it over painted furniture to add another layer of dimension to your piece and make all of the colors pop.

That’s what Cathy did with two of her recent projects. She painted these Fiery Sunset Nightstands in red, orange and yellow. After the paint dried, she applied corresponding colors of Unicorn Spit on top of each painted area to accentuate the colors and give these once ho-hum nightstands a vibrant new look.

Now they are functional AND pretty!

Here’s another piece Cathy created with the same technique, this time a cute little bookcase with pretty swirls of blue and just a splash of green.

Dave is an awesome “spitter” too!

This is a storage bench he built recently from a vintage U.S. Army artillery box. He used Unicorn Spit as a glaze over his paint job to give the piece a little more pizazz.

  1. My favorite wood stain ever. All the projects are so gorgeous, nothing beats the vibrant colors. Now I just wish I wasn’t all the way across the world so I could come to one of your courses.
