Transforming an Everyday Glass Bottle Into a Conversation Piece.
I love Unicorn Spit paint. While browsing the internet for DIY projects I found Unicorn Spit. OH WOW, this looked like a fun paint. Being adventuresome and curious I decided to try this stuff out. I have since used it on wood projects but, not glass. I recently read about using it on glass. I save wine bottles and unusual shaped bottles. Let me suggest if you want to use Unicorn Spit educate yourself on the proper application before embarking on a project. I purchased my Unicorn Spit at Home Depot for $9.99 a bottle. The bottles last a long time.
First, make certain that the bottle is clean and free of labels.
Unicorn Spit will not adhere directly to glass it must be prepped with either Modpodge or chalk paint. On this bottle, I covered it with Modpodge. Now, wait for the Modpodge to completely dry before beginning to apply the Unicorn Spit.
My apology but, in my excitement, to get to the final destination I forgot to take a photo of applying the Spit. Once you have placed the Spit on the bottle it is time to give it that look of beauty. Using saran wrap I wrapped it around the bottle in a counterclockwise direction. Using my hands, I began to rub and press on the wrap to create a unique design.
After removing the Saran Wrap this is the look that I got. I love it. Next step is waiting for it to dry. Unicorn Spit drys quickly. As it drys it takes on a very chalky look.
Unicorn Spit must be sealed after drying. It is a water-based paint that will not adhere without a sealer. Make certain that you use an oil based sealer. the sealer also brings out the color and takes away the chalky appearance.
The following pictures show the final product. As you can see I completed 3 bottles to use as a centerpiece for the breakfast table.
