From Boring to Beautiful-Easy DIY Unicorn SPiT Pansy Technique
This technique can be used on just about any surface but for this demonstration, I will be using an ordinary dollar store clear glass vase.
By now you've probably heard of Unicorn SpiT but in case you haven't, let me tell you a little bit about it! Unicorn SPiT is an amazing colored gel stain and glaze in one product. It's the first and best of its kind. It can be used as a glaze/paint over existing finishes, an enhancer over chalk paint for a three dimensional effect, a wood stain and more! It is non-toxic and smells like jasmine! No kidding! Jasmine! This means crafts, painting and staining all year long indoors!!! No harmful chemicals or odors and cleans up with water!! I am so happy about this product! The sky's the limit. So, I was playing around one day with SPiT and my brush was loaded with one color and I needed a quick dab of another color so I laid down my brush and dabbed my finger in the paint to touch up that area on my vase and that is when I realized I could get this Pansy-like effect with just my finger! So like Forest Gump, I ran with it and didn't stop! The result was a chintz-like patten of pansies! It's so easy to do with such great results!!
Once you can no longer see through the paint from the inside, you're ready to finger paint with Unicorn SPiT!

I have to disclose up front that I am crazy for pansies. Stark, raving, love them! And I have Unicorn Spit and love it, too but I must have been talking when someone was teaching this technique! I will be doing this asap because I cannot live without a vase or table top or wall or my whole house done this way. You just gave me the key to smiling until my face hurts. Thank you and my plastic surgeon thanks you, too.
