I think acrylic might be too opaque for similar rusults of unicorn spit. I've always worked with acrylics and I know you can thin them just so much.
I think I figured out that unicorn spit is hair dye...this is a board I did with manic panic perfect intensity and dollar tree hair dye...the sheen in the middle is just where I added some opal magic to try something...I did this quick in the middle of the night when I had an ephinany so I could make it look a lot better with a little effort
That’s also a terrible middle of the night pic-I will try to find some time to take a couple more of something else and post!!
I would like to hear from more artists who have an alternative to the very expensive-not sure it's worth it- unicorn spit. I'm wondering if art oil paint might not get a like result?? Hair dye?? Worth a shot. Thanks!
I’m also wondering if mica powder might give the same effect mixed with a little acrylic paint??
