Can UNICORN SPiT be used outdoors?

Yes.  Make sure to protect your masterpiece first with finishes/coatings that are oil-based.  Water-based coatings will alter the look of Unicorn SPiT.  For a high gloss finish, seal with Famowood Glaze Coat. For better protection and a higher gloss, repeat coats of sealer as indicated on the product’s instructions. High Gloss Sealers will help achieve a three dimensional look.

Will UNICORN SPiT applied to fabric be water resistant and machine washable?

Yes, fabric will retain much of the Unicorn SPiT color if treated before washing (see various methods below)*.  For best results, wash in cold water by hand (with very little laundry detergent).  Rinse with cold water.  Various methods to increase the colorfastness of the Unicorn SPiT before washing are as follows:

Fabric Medium:  Mix a Fabric Medium with Unicorn SPiT according to instructions on the Fabric Medium bottle.

Allure® Dimensional Design Adhesive Paint:  Mix Unicorn SPiT with with Allure Gloss (Shiny Clear) in a 1:1 ratio.  Dry flat 5 hours.  Washable after 72 hours. 

Non-waterbased fabric protectant:  Let Unicorn SPiT dry.  Apply protectant.  Allow to dry as indicated on product. Let set for 24 hours before washing.

Hair Dryer:  Let Unicorn SPiT dry.  Use hottest blow dryer setting to heat fabric until fabric is hot.  Allow to cool back down to room temperature.  Let set for 24 hours before washing.

Iron:  Let Unicorn SPiT dry.  Put iron on hottest setting (without moisture).  Lay wax paper over fabric.  Iron front and back of fabric until hot.  Allow to cool back down to room temperature.  Let set for 24 hours before washing.

Vinegar:  Put fabric with dried Unicorn SPiT design in cold water/vinegar at a 1:1 ratio mix.  Let set in vinegar for 24 hours.  Rinse with cold water and a very small amount of laundry detergent immediately after removing from water/vinegar solution.  Lay flat to dry.

Clothes dryer:  Put fabric with dried Unicorn SPiT design in dryer for 1 hour on hottest setting.  Remove and allow to cool to room temperature.  Let set for 24 hours before washing.

*Zia is not a colorfast color.  Use other colors if project will be exposed to moisture.

NOTE:  If a more washed-out look is desired:  Let set for 24 hours before washing.  Machine wash in gentle cycle with cold water.  Machine dry if desired.
