Unicorn Spit Galaxy Table on Glass

While it might not sound particularly appealing, unicorn spit looks phenomenal and can really help change how your furniture looks and feels. The paint works together to create a futuristic or mystical look and helps disguise any old furniture. Unicorn spit designs may look complex and difficult to do but they are actually surprisingly easy to make and the finished product can give any DIY Hometalker a sense of accomplishment at how magnificent it looks afterwards, as Hometalker Sally has shown us with this unicorn spit stain on a glass table.

How to Apply the Unicorn Spit Paint?

First, you start by wetting the surface that you are going to be giving the unicorn spit treatment. It shouldn't be drenched, but moist enough. Then, squeeze the paints of your choice onto the surface. The more contrasting the colors, the better the effect. Paints suitable for unicorn spit projects can be found from many sites online and ranges are available for the purpose of creating a stunning unicorn spit stain look.

How to Get the Unicorn Spit Look?

Spray again with water and then cover with a plastic drop cloth. Allow the air to suction out and then begin swirling the paint around underneath the plastic.

Ensure that every section of the surface is covered, as Jessica Heath shows us here. Then, once satisfied, pull the plastic away to allow the center to pop. Apply several coats of tung oil and polyurethane to set the paint and you'll have your design.

Unicorn Spit as a Magical Decoration

Unicorn spit doesn't just have to be used to repurpose old furniture. You can use the technique itself to create a dramatic and thought-provoking work of art. Creating artwork with unicorn spit paint techniques can give an added dimension to a part of your home and give a magical touch to really bring a space alive. The technique is exactly the same as to repurpose furniture, except your strokes of moving the paint around under the plastic will be more deliberate in order to create specific patterns.

Unicorn Spit as a Room's Centerpiece

Unicorn spit can be used as a focal point in a room, such as a coffee table in a lounge. The color scheme of the unicorn spit can match the color scheme of the room or even contrast to create an accent design. Focusing on unicorn spit as the feature of a room can draw attention and change the flow of a room. Something simple such as this could work to make the room feel fresh and renewed. The technique is extremely simple and the results are very effective.

Unicorn Spit on Garden Furniture

Unicorn spit doesn't just have to be used to bring a sense of magic and mysticism to the inside. Following the same basic principles, you can add unicorn spit to patio furniture. The hard-wearing chemicals used to set the paint mean that it should endure being left outside, so it is a perfect way to spice up some plain old garden furniture. Plus, if you accidentally get paint somewhere it shouldn't, it's easier to hose down and start again.

Unicorn Spit Design Fish Bowl

Just because something has to be in a room, it doesn't mean you can't decorate it to match the room's theme. Turning one side of your fishbowl into a unicorn spit paint background adds another dimension to it. One of the benefits of unicorn spit is the versatility, which means it can be added to almost anything to turn it into a feature. This doesn't just have to stop at a fishbowl; adding unicorn spit paint to anything that might need to take a place in the room could transform it.

Unicorn Spit for a Controlled Design

If you really wanted to showcase your skills with unicorn spit, you could embark on a project such as the one that Hometalker Mary Alice did, wherein she painted over her dining room table, as can be seen above. This unicorn spit design is slightly different to the previous designs and features the paint used in more of a controlled manner. As well as bringing in various colors, unicorn spit is also able to deep stain pieces of wooden furniture, so could be used like this to create a full and protected painting on a unit of furniture.

Unicorn Spit on Glass

Muted designs could bring unicorn spit into more of a decorative role in your room, yet still draw the eyes of all who enter. Painting on an old glass oil lamp with unicorn spit gives it a new dimension. The real magical nature of unicorn spit comes from the way in which it interacts with the furniture it is painted on. Hometalker Unique Creations By Anita placed the paint inside the lamp and swirled it around to create the pattern, adorning the outside with gold leaf.

Unicorn Spit Bathroom

Why settle for separate pieces of furniture when you can transform your entire bathroom with unicorn spit? Hometalker Michelle McCaughtry used unicorn spit to paint her vanity, cabinet and bathroom nook. Using unicorn spit as the main feature to transform a room can breathe life into somewhere not typically associated with looking magical, such as your bathroom. The paint is versatile enough to work well on many different kinds of surfaces as well as working to deeply stain the wood to create the marbled effect.

Unicorn Spit Desk

Unicorn spit can work well with an item of furniture that is slightly magical to begin with. Enchanting this desk with unicorn spit evokes warm feelings of sitting and creating magical realms at the desk. The surface of the desk has been painted with unicorn spit in one design, while the drawers have been given a muted treatment, which works to amplify the unicorn spit design on the surface of the desk. A desk isn't just a functional piece of furniture but somewhere important to create and design, so should look the part.

Unicorn Spit Room Inflections

If you wanted to start on something smaller with unicorn spit but want something that will definitely have an impact, add a unicorn spit paint coating to your light switch. This can be done simply with the mist settings that come with the paint sprayers, leaving time for each layer to dry before applying the next one. Even the plainest room can be jazzed up with a taste of unicorn spit. Plus, for beginners, something that can be easily replaced is a perfect way to start with no pressure.
