During the recent Craft-A-Thon that Team Creative Crafts hosted (find ALL the details HERE), I had the opportunity to create with UNICORN SPiT® and UNICORN SPiT SPARKLiNG® from Eclectic Products, the makers of E6000 Adhesives. My UNICORN SPiT® Rainbow Bowl Stained with Sparkling Shine gets its inspiration from my most colorful friend, Laura Kelly. She is fearless when it comes to creativity and I learned a lot from her this weekend! Check out my tutorial and then scroll all the way down for a SURPRISE!

Here’s what you need to make a UNICORN SPiT® Stained Rainbow Bowl:
- UNICORN SPiT® – Phoenix Fire, Lemon Kiss, Zia, Blue Thunder
- UNICORN SPiT SPARKLiNG® – Dolly Firebird, Starling Sasha, Lavish Lovebirds, Violet Vulture
- Faceted Wooden Bowl – 14 Triangular Sides (found at Hobby Lobby)
- Paintbrush – 3/4″ Flat
- Plastic Paint Palette
- Americana Spray Sealer – Not Water Based
Here’s how to create a Rainbow Bowl with UNICORN SPiT®:
To begin the UNICORN SPiT® Rainbow Bowl Stained with Sparkling Shine, gather all supplies. Remove any labels from the wooden bowl and sand any rough edges with a fine-grit sandpaper. Remove sawdust with a damp paper towel.
Since the UNICORN SPiT® and UNICORN SPiT SPARKLiNG® are gel stains, squeeze out a small amount in a plastic paint palette with induvial wells.
I counted the triangles on this wooden bowl and was over the moon that it has 14 sides, which means double rainbow! Starting with UNICORN SPiT SPARKLiNG® Dolly Firebird, paint the outside, inside, and top edge of the first and eighth triangles using a 1″ flat paintbrush.
Continue painting the triangular sides of the wooden bowl in rainbow order, two for each color. UNICORN SPiT® Phoenix Fire, Lemon Kiss, Blue Thunder, and UNICORN SPiT SPARKLiNG® Lavish Lovebirds, Violet Vulture, Starling Sasha. Inside and outside, plus along the top edge.
Paint the bottom of the wooden bowl, inside and outside with UNICORN SPiT® Zia, a gorgeous Sky Blue, and the perfect accent to all of these bright a vibrant colors. I love how the wood grain shows through the UNICORN SPiT® gel stains.
How to add Sparkle with UNICORN SPiT® Stains
UNICORN SPiT® and UNICORN SPiT SPARKLiNG® are concentrated gel stains that can be used as a paint or diluted with water to create a glaze, stain, whitewash, or antiquing tint.
