Product We Love: Unicorn SPiT Paint

Crafting can be fun for just about anyone, but let’s be honest, it can also get expensive. Especially when each project requires all different materials. With hundreds of options in the industry, we discovered a product that may help combat that overwhelming feeling you get when you head toward the craft store checkout line!

Unicorn SPiT is a multi-use paint that was created by Michelle Gordon, an Art Director for her family-owned business, when she realized there was a gap in the market for quality craft paint. After experimenting in her kitchen, she came up with a formula that was usable on a variety of surfaces including wood, glass, metal, fabric, concrete, and more. It’s also jasmine scented (believe us, we tested!) and non-toxic, so you can paint indoors without having to wear a mask. It’s now distributed by Eclectic Products, the same company that does E6000 glue.

We painted this wood letter L with the colors Purple Hill Majesty and Zia Teal. The easy-to-use product blended perfectly together for a washed look. We added a little water to dilute the mixture and get the varying shades of colors. (Fun fact: If you squeeze unicorn paint onto a paper plate and let it dry, you can use it as a watercolor.) Hang the letter on a gallery wall or prop it on a bookshelf and you have the perfect DIY to personalize your space!

The line comes in 10 vibrant colors and can be diluted with a splash of water down to a gel, stain, glaze, or tint- making it perfect for simple painting projects, or something more complex like refurbishing old furniture. For the letter E, we painted on Thunder Blue and used a paper towel to wipe off any excess for a washed look. We added white paint on top for a white wash, then added white polka dots.

The possibilities are endless! You can mix glitter into the colors for a metallic look, add white liquid glue to it for a puff paint look, or stain any surface and add a glaze for a professional finished look.

UNICORN SPiT isn’t quite on the market yet, but look for it in places like JoAnn’s, Home Deport, and other crafting and home improvement places soon!
