Unicorn Spit Galaxy Table on Glass

This was my 1st attempt at using Unicorn Spit on Glass and it worked magically.
I wanted to try Unicorn Spit on Glass and found a coffee table online. I separated the glass from the base so it would be easier for me to work on the glass, and the wrought iron base needed some work too. I started with the glass.
I had the Galaxy theme in mind I sprayed the glass with 2 coats of Squirts paint and prime satin silver spray paint as a base for the galaxy. When the spray paint was dry, I applied a coat of Mod Podge on the spray paint to bond the Unicorn Spit
When the Mod Podge was dry, I used Unicorn Spit's Zia Teal, Blue Thunder, White Ning, Midnight Blackness, Phoenix fire, Pixie Punk Pink, and Purple Hill Majesty to make a spiral pattern.

When I thought I had adequate Unicorn Spit on the table, I sprayed water on the Unicorn spit with water from a spray bottle. I placed a piece of plastic over the wet surface, removed air bubbles and from the centre of the table, using the palm of my hand, blended the Unicorn spit to the end of the table, making my way around the table.
I removed the plastic and flicked White Ning and Lemon Kiss onto the table for the stars. I also added gold, silver and blue mica powder at this stage.
While the top dried, I cleaned the base and sprayed it with two coats of Rust-oleum paint and primer Gloss Black Spray Paint.
I applied 3 coats of polyurethane to seal the top of the table.
I put the table together and it is a captivating piece.

It took 2 days to do the top and spray the base and a further 3 days due to applying each coat of polyurethane 24 hours apart.

    What type of polyurethane did you use? I know that some types leave a yellow residue. Your table is beautiful.

      Hi Vicky, thanku I appreciate your comment. I used Cabothane clear oil based polyurathane. This product does hv a yellow tinge and I hv found I cannot use it on white as it discolours. It did work for this project tho. I hope that helps 😊

    Your table is absolutely goregous. I'm using Unicorn Spit on glass, to put a finish on I was going to use Parks Super Glaze or Famowood Glaze Coat? Which do you think would be better? The Famowood is a high gloss craft resin.

      Hi Cheryl,

      .

      One of the absolute joys of working with Unicorn Spit is it's versatility. I don't know if it would work on plexis glass, but give it a try! Perhaps a small area to start. There can be plenty of trial and errors before you meet your goal 😊 hope this helps!
