Unicorn Spit Beginner Tips and Project Ideas

Unicorn Spit is magical! Learn how to use unicorn spit concentrated stain. It blends so well while maintaining it's vibrant color.

Save time and learn these quick steps.

So how to start?

(link below to order, but for now on to the process.)

When you first get Unicorn Spit take a few moments to practice. Shake, first then Open those bottles and get too it.  Don't wait and be afraid have fun and play with it! You will be upset you waited so long.

Just remember it not exactly paint -- so it works different. It is described as paint, a glaze, and a gel stain all in one. Such a versatile product that can be used on many surfaces, and in multiple ways and mixes.  It blends so well together. And it is natural for some of the wood to show through on completion.

In this video below I explain a few starter techniques.

Trying it out on smaller scale objects.  Like the tinest Unicorn spit table :)  so cute!  I love miniature things! Try this unicorn spit project.


TIP for Blending: Try to stop with too much blending it will smear the colors together and can loose the look.  I had multiple foam brushes on hand to switch too if the spit gets too muddy looking. Can use your fingers too --washes off with shampoo.

Tip for Lighter color more wood grain: You can add water to it and dilute it up to 10 % officially I have done more than 10% for different looks.  One Bottle lasts a really long time.

Want an even easier way with a high end look?

 Do you have to Seal Unicorn Spit?

YES, You have to seal spit.

A lot of people ask this because they don't like the way Oil sealers yellow the look.  Oil sealer is recommend . Epoxy (which is a learning curve in itself) Can also be used.   I can tell you in my practice sessions I have sprayed 3 coats of clear spray paint on top (most brands work) and then after complete drying applied 2 coats of water based sealer and I was good to go.

  • Love this video on the picture frame. You have explained more in this one video than I’ve learned in all the other videos I e watched. I just recently bought unicorn spit and was disappointed in my end result. I now understand why ..it IS a stain and not a paint. And now I know how to get my colors to pop. Thank you so much…

  • Love your videos. I’m looking for some sort of colored stain for barn wood frames. Tried a Minwax water based (the solid version) but it was too much like paint. Any suggestions? Think the Unicorn Spit would work? Thank you!
