Intro: Unicorn Spit on Glass

Like anyone that has unicorn Spit you find your self running around your house, to the thrift store or budget stores looking for items to spit on. I really the love unicorn spit on glass this crackle effect can make the most boring glass item become spectacular.

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.

Step 7:

This product is so great it can be used on so many surfaces. To see more images please visit www.uniquecreationsabyanita.com
