Unicorn Spit is a new non-toxic, water-based rainbow gel stain/glaze that can be used to create a variety of wonderfully colorful looks on furniture and more. All Things New Again is the only store in the Northern Virginia/ metro Washington DC area offering lessons on how to use Unicorn Spit. Due to space constraints in our studio, we have to limit our classes to 3 people so our classes fill up quickly. 

Students will receive a 10% discount on paint purchases made the day of class.

We also offer private classes. If you can get 3 people together for a full class, we will schedule a class just for you at a date/time convenient for your group. See this link for details on private classes.

    I was told anything poly clear eventually turns yellow. Looking for a high gloss oil based product over spit. Also what high gloss product can be used over spit on canvas.

      Hi Linda,

      Oil-based polyurethane products do tend to turn yellow over time when applied over lighter colors, especially white. I usually use high gloss Min-Wax Polyurethane over my Unicorn Spit projects. It has not been an issue for me over darker colors, which I typically use more in my work.

      If you have a large patch of white on a project, you could seal it with a water-based polyacrylic product just over the white area, let it dry, then come back and poly the entire piece with the oil-based product.

      You want to stay away from water-based sealers on Unicorn Spit because it tends to blend the colors together too much and you lose your cool design to a muddy mess. But if you keep it just over the white areas, it should be OK and seal in the white spots to protect them from yellowing when the polyurethane is applied over the entire design.

      There are also several epoxy products on the market that look great over Unicorn Spit. I know Famowood Epoxy is a favorite among other Unicorn Spit artists, but I have not tried it yet. My understanding is it does not yellow. I believe they use it over canvas too, but I don’t do canvas artwork so I don’t know that answer for sure.

      Good luck with your projects!
