I don't think it can be done. Toss it and buy a new one. I prefer to use the pen type.

I haven't used Liquid Paper in years, because everything is done on the computer now, but we used to be able to buy Liquid Paper thinner.

White out thinner is acetone. So is nail polish remover. At a job yrs ago our lady boss refused to approve buying ofc sply store white out thinner. A bottle of nail polish remover is ridiculously cheaper and its the same stuff.

Ordinary rubbing alcohol will thin white out. You can also remove some marker ink with a dab of bleach but only when the ink is fresh and don't rub just dab with a q-tip.

You can use acetate but I recommend you toss it and get a white out pen like the photo. They are amazing, with no mess. Hope that helps.

How can you make colored white out?

I don't think you can. If you need a product like white out that is colored, perhaps you should try craft paint. Some colors might be opaque enough to work. Some colors are transparent, and won't do the same job. Artist acrylic paints are also available, but they are more expensive. Why do you need colored white out?

How do you make or reuse old White Out (liquid paper)?

I can't find a 'real' recipe for white out online. I suppose you could use white paint on a tiny brush. Maybe somehow get white chalk dust goopy enough to stick to paper?
