How to make your SPiT Sparkle

Windchime makeover

One of the main attractions was that you can still see the wood grain through the stain. Continue Reading →

How to use Unicorn Spit and Metallic paint on Baubles

Unicorn spit Christmas baubles

It worked so well I thought I would try Unicorn Spit on the plastic baubles for our Christmas tree. Continue Reading →
