I have the same ugly outlet and I’m stealing this idea!” said a reader when she saw the after

My most pinned project by other people is one of the light switch covers I updated when we painted our kitchen. I found an extra outlet cover in a drawer to show you how I accomplished this art using Unicorn SPiT!

Time: 1 Hours Difficulty: Easy

Start with one of those cheap plastic covers.

Pick your Unicorn SPiT colors! I used Crow (black) SPARKLiNG gel stain, Ornery Oriole (orange) SPARKLiNG stain gel, Dragon’s Belly (green), and a custom mix (Lil’ bit White Ning & Navajo Jewel)

I SPiT directly onto the plastic. Little drops of each color.

I laid a piece of regular ol’ plastic wrap over the SPiT.

Then using my fingers, moved the SPiT around. (This is the press technique)

Gently lift the plastic wrap off in a upward direction. (You’ll get different effects depending on the direction you pull the plastic wrap off)

Decided it needed a bit more of the light blue so I added a few more dots & blew them to spread it out.

Let dry! I put a fan next to mine to speed it up because I am impatient .

You want to seal the SPiT to insure durability. I used this spray. A few coats is a good idea.

Let dry between coats.

Install the plate like you usually would & enjoy your custom made art! Definitely a conversation starter. All your friends & family will want some!
