Unicorn Spit Color Wood Stain on a Picnic Table
Unicorn Spit a magical stain! It blends like butter while maintaining it's vibrant color.
Unicorn Spit is considered a gel stain and glaze in ONE bottle. And believe me the bottle might be small, but it can be used in so many ways and can last over a year depending on how you use it!

- concrete and laminate.
Make some simple preparations first , either sand paper it or prime for best results. I have done nothing and it still can work! On wood I would suggest sanded and no gloss showing for the best results.
You can create something new or for DIY up-cycling on all your projects!
I adore using unicorn spit on wood as a stain. It can be diluted with water to stretch it even further. The results are a lighter color that still shows the wood grain. Which is my fav! I learned to not be scared of a torch and wood burn in order to make my projects even better.

*Please note I have practiced with Unicorn Spit for about a year before I attempted this. It took a total 1 month to complete. Still stands as one of my largest piece of functional art I have ever made.

There are plenty of beginner learning techniques and projects. I have posted some on my channel.
There are many steps to completion. The process:
- Sand ruff spots
- Carefully Wood Burn with torch -with help from adult if needed.
- Hand paint the stain with diluted and not diluted spit.
- Flow the grain when you apply the colored stain
- UV Stain Top Coat - UV Marine Varnish (I did 3 full top coats)
When you are applying the US (unicorn spit) and it dries it looks almost dull and a bit chalky. The magic happens when you put the top coat on it deepens the color and shows more of the wood grain.
