INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE USE

Use Unicorn SPiT® as a paint, gel or stain on most any material. Create masterpieces on wood, glass, metal, fabric, pottery, concrete, laminate, wicker and most other substrates.

GENERAL DIRECTIONS:

SHAKE WELL and test small area before use. Can be applied with a brush, foam pad, or your hands! Dry time depends upon thickness of the application. Dry time is approximately 30-60 minutes (depending on material, humidity and temperature) or until a chalky finish appears. Unicorn SPiT dries quickly. Use a spray bottle of water to keep product from drying out and to easily manipulate. Once dry, use FAMOWOOD GLAZE COAT or other non-waterbased coatings to protect add gloss and dimension.

  1. Laminate use: Sand the surface with 220 sand paper after cleaning, then dust well before applying
  2. Glass: To add durability to the exterior of regularly handled items, put a thin layer of DISHWASHER SAFE decoupage on the surface, allow to dry, then apply Unicorn SPiT.
  3. Fabric use: Use Unicorn SPiT full strength for “stamping” (creating design on a separate surface and then “stamping” it on to a fabric project). Then, use a water bottle and your hand or brush to blend. For “direct to fabric” projects, mix Unicorn SPiT with 6 parts water in a spray bottle or cup and brush it on, drip it on or spray it on. Use a product intended for waterproofing fabric after Unicorn SPiT has completely dried.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE AS A PAINT, HEAVY GLAZE, or ANTIQUING/DRY BRUSHING ON WOOD, GLASS, METAL, FABRIC, POTTERY, WICKER, CONCRETE AND LAMINATE: 

  1. SHAKE BEFORE USING.
  2. Use Unicorn SPiT right out of the bottle for a paint application or dilute it up to 10% with water for antiquing or dry brushing.  Diluting Unicorn SPiT with water allows you to control the opaqueness.  For antiquing or dry brushing, add 10 parts Unicorn SPiT in a re-sealable container to be diluted with water. Test the dilution on a small, dry, clean sample piece of the same substrate as your project, gradually adding up to 1 part water until the desired effect is achieved.
  3. Apply the diluted Unicorn SPiT to the surface once it is completely void of all oil, sealer, dirt, grime, paint, stain, or anything that may inhibit the product from contacting the bare surface.
  4. Continue to add or blend multiple colors to the surface in separate areas creating designs to achieve the desired look.
  5. Allow to dry.  Dry time is approximately 30-60 minutes (depending on material, humidity and temperature) or until a chalky finish appears.
  6. After drying, lightly buff the surface with a fine grain sandpaper (120-220 grit) or extra-fine steel wool (following the grain) to remove any excess or clumps.
  7. Dust off thoroughly.
  8. Seal with FAMOWOOD GLAZE COAT or most any oil-based coating/sealer. For better protection and a higher gloss, repeat coats of sealer as indicated on the product’s instructions. High gloss sealers will help achieve a three dimensional look.

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE AS A LIGHT GLAZE, WHITE WASH OR ANTIQUING AGENT:

  1. SHAKE BEFORE USING
  2. Dilute Unicorn SPiT up to 30% with water to make a light glaze, white wash or antiquing agent. Diluting Unicorn SPiT with water allows you to control the opaqueness. Add 10 parts Unicorn Spit in a re-sealable container to be diluted with water. Test the dilution on a small, dry, clean sample piece of the same substrate as your project, gradually adding up to 3 parts water until the desired effect is achieved.
  3. Apply the diluted Unicorn SPiT to the surface once it is completely void of all oil, dirt, grime, paint, stain, or anything that may inhibit the product from making contact with the surface to antique, age, paint, highlight or lowlight.
  4. Continue to add or blend multiple colors to the surface in separate areas creating designs to achieve the desired look.
  5. Once dry, use a soft (dry or damp) cloth to polish away Unicorn SPiT until your desired effect has been achieved.
  6. Apply to unsealed chalk or mineral style paint to create custom color highlighting and lowlighting before sealing.
  7. Allow to dry. Dry time is approximately 30-60 minutes (depending on material, humidity and temperature) or until a chalky finish appears.
  8. Seal with FAMOWOOD GLAZE COAT or most any oil-based coating/sealer. For better protection and a higher gloss, repeat coats of sealer as indicated on the product’s instructions. High Gloss Sealers will help achieve a three dimensional look. 

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE AS A STAIN OR DYE:

  1. SHAKE BEFORE USING.
  2. Dilute Unicorn SPiT up to 50% with water to make stain. Diluting Unicorn SPiT with water allows you to control the opaqueness and absorption into the porous surface.  Add 10 parts Unicorn Spit in a re-sealable container to be diluted with water.  Test the dilution on a small, dry, clean and bare sample piece of the same substrate as your project, gradually adding up to 5 parts water until the desired effect is achieved.
  3. Apply the diluted Unicorn SPiT to the bare surface once it is completely void of all oil, sealer, dirt, grime, paint, stain, or anything that may inhibit the product from making contacting with the bare porous surface.
  4. Continue to add or blend multiple colors to the surface in separate areas creating designs to achieve the desired look.
  5. Allow to dry.  Dry time is approximately 30-60 minutes (depending on material, humidity and temperature) or until a chalky finish appears.
  6. After drying, lightly buff the surface with a fine grade sand paper (120-220 grit) or extra-fine steel wool (following the grain) to remove any excess or clumps.
  7. Dust off thoroughly.
