Step 1: Find Glass Items to Spit
I had these lamps for years and I could not resist doing them in unicorn spit. I washed the lamps in hot soapy water to get all the soot and dirt off them.
Step 2: Add Some Spit
I used a plastic syringe to push the unicorn spit into the glass lamp, I was trying to avoid the straight line pattern. I randomly kept turning the glass changing the direction so the colors blended better. I added 3 sprays of water using a fine mist spray. And stood them up to dry, and as you can imagine gravity took over and my design was gone. But all was not lost.
Step 3: Add Metallic Spray Paint
Once the spit was dry I used metallic gold spray paint on the inside.
Step 4: Paint the Base
For the base I wanted to paint the outsides instead because I am hoping to find a way to still use the lamps. I added one coat of mod podge and left it to dry. It turns clear when dry. I used midnight blackness to paint the bases.
Step 5: Spray the Handles
I spray painted the handles gold and gave the base 2 coats of gloss spray polyurethane. I found the base looked a bit to plain, but felt multi colors would be too much.
Step 6: Add Gold Leave
So I used cheap fake gold leaf and added it to the raised edges on the base. I painted on the size and let it sit for 25 minutes then applied the gold leave and removed the excess with a dry paint brush.
