    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.

    • Courtney @ All Things New Again says:

      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!

    Hi!
    I would love to take your class but live in Northern California☹️ There is a picture on what you teach, I believe it is called Aura Blast. I have a small glass table that I would love to use that technique on. I am a beginner and have played with Spit on wood and one small glass piece. The table would be a going away gift for a wonderful roommate that I have had for the past year.
    Is there any possible way you could give me a private tutorial over the phone using face time or refer me to a book or something online that would show me how to place the paint to get that effect? I would be willing to pay you!😁
    Thank you for your consideration.
    Sincerely,
    Indra Matthews

      Hi Indra!

      Check out this tutorial I did on how to do the Aura Blast technique: https://allthingsnewagain.net/2015/09/30/step-by-step-diy-tutorial-how-to-create-an-aura-blast-design-with-unicorn-spit-rainbow-gel-stain/
      This technique takes a little practice to get your blending just right, but the photos show you how I apply and move the product around. The big trick to the Aura Blast is this: Don’t over-blend the colors. If they start to get muddled together too much and you are losing the cool definition between colors, just stop. Let it dry. And then come back and apply more colors over it until you love how it looks. Since you are doing this on a glass table, you might want to apply a layer of Mod Podge over the glass first. It will dry clear, but help the Unicorn Spit stick better. It’s going to look REALLY COOL! If you have any questions when you get started, just let me know. I’ll be happy to help you.
