Where are all of my crafters?! It’s the most crafty time of year. The seasons are changing and holidays are coming and I have a great book for you inspired by the popular Unicorn SPiT painting trend.
Unicorn SPiT is a paint, gel stain, and glaze concentrate — all in one bottle! It creates a multifaceted, 3-dimensional effect on wood, glass, metal, fabric, pottery, wicker, concrete, laminate and more. Fans love that it’s non-toxic and comes in a variety of outrageous colors.
Back in 2015, inventor Michelle Nicole never imagined her colorful concoction would go from being made in a spaghetti pot in her kitchen to being sold at major art and hobby stores around the world. “When I created Unicorn SPiT, I was skeptical of how it would be received,” she said. “But after seeing the art created by thousands of people using the product, its powers have proved to be real.”
Now, for the first time, Michelle spills the secrets about the best tips and tricks for using the paint to create vibrant works of art in The Official Unicorn SPiT® User’s Handbook: Let Your Creative Juices Flow With Over 50 Colorful Projects for Home Decor, Apparel, Artwork, and Much More! [978-1681987194; $34.95; Rocky Nook; October 2021]. This official guidebook details everything you need to know, including more than 50 projects for artwork, glassware, clothing, and more; mixing color to create unique new shades; easy techniques for applying paint like a pro; tips and tricks on giving new life to old furniture; and much, much more!
The Official Unicorn SPiT® User’s Handbook also tells the inspiring story behind its creation. When she was 21, Michelle started an arts and crafts program at a daycare center for disabled adults and elderly citizens, but she noticed the men weren’t partaking in projects, like macaroni pictures and hook rugs. When she spotted an old piece of furniture off the side of the road, she brought it in for the men to work on. In no time at all, many of the participants transformed pieces of furniture, and the art therapy was energizing the senior citizens.
“Realizing that some of the residents were going to use their hands to color the furniture, I decided to develop a non-toxic product that didn’t emit harmful fumes or irritate the skin. After much trial and error, I developed a vibrantly colorful stain that worked, was safe to use, and smelled like jasmine,” she said. This stain eventually became known as Unicorn SPiT.
