I would like to know how to make a liquid paper.
By Precious from PH
Here is what I found on ehow.com:
Correction fluid is made using an assortment of chemicals to create a fluid that spreads across normal typing or writing errors. The first chemical is titanium dioxide, which has a color index of pigment white, the standard color for correction fluid. Next are the solvent naphtha, petroleum, and light aliphatic, which mix with the initial chemical. Resin, mineral spirits, colorants, fragrance, and dispersant also combine with the rest of the chemicals to create the opaque, white substance.
Trichloroethane, a thinning agent, is no longer used due to its toxicity under Proposition 65. (11/10/2009)
I use a great deal of white out to clean up mistakes on paper. How do you make white out, and how do you clean out the bottles to reuse? Thanks for your help in this situation.
I have been told that white out is simply a little bottle of enamel paint. If you buy a small container of white paint in the hardware store, it will give you a lot of refills. To clean out the bottle, you can use mineral spirits or turpentine in a well ventilated area. (01/07/2005)
Vodka, a splash of white paint, and bit of flour (with 2 spoons of water). Makes very nice whiteout (and comes off from clothes quite easy, but sticks to paper). (02/24/2008)
