A little magic that is Unicorn SPiT

Have you heard of the awesome product called Unicorn SPiT? If you haven't, you're missing out and must get some today!!! It is a gel glaze and stain product that works on so many surfaces! And it even smells good!

For this project, I used the Unicorn SPiT and a piece of wood. I started by sanding down the rough edges of my wood and then doing a little finger painting. Are you sold already?

The Unicorn SPiT is super concentrated so a little goes a long way. I applied my SPiT in circles starting from the center of the board. I then wet the board down with a spray bottle of water. Then I put a piece of saran wrap over the top. I sprayed the saran wrap to help my hands slide over it better, then pushed the paint from the center outward.

Once I was happy with the spreading of the SPiT, I removed the saran wrap. I did a little adjusting using more water, more SPiT and my hands! Yes, you get dirty with this product!

I was sort of going for the galaxy look with my board, so I grabbed the Victorine Originals Large Medallion stamp and got it wet with water. Then I lightly and carefully stamped it a few places on my board, wetting it with water as needed. Since the Unicorn SPiT is a water-based product, it reacts with the water. This leaves a cool watercolor-effect image you can see in the background.

After I was happy with my design, I let it dry and then sealed it. You want to use an oil-based sealer for SPiT projects. And, the polyurethane really makes the SPiT shine! Adding the gloss finish makes the paint look so much cooler! I put five coats of poly on this board.

To finish off my project, I used a Chalk Couture transfer. (Want to learn more and you're local to SumMore Fun's Creation Station? Check out the class schedule today.) Since the board is sealed with the poly, I can erase and change out my sentiment whenever I'd like!
