How do you make or reuse old White Out (liquid paper)?
By Denise from Benecia, CA
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?
To MARIE: I found your ? about how 2 make homemade whiteout, found a post with impossible to find chemicals, so scrolled down a bit to THIS post: Vodka, a splash of white paint (try water soluable rather than enamel), a bit of flour + 2 spoons of water. Further comment was: It will also wash out of clothing & material very nicely. SO - This vodka recipe sounds like a plan--Think I'll try it.
What can I use to thin out liquid paper? I find it gets thick too quickly.

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.
Those correction tapes and the pens are okay but sometimes you get more than you need in the form of a blob. I use the fluid with a brush. They have some with a sponge applicator.
How can you make colored white out?
By dylan mehringer from Jasper, IN
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?
I wanted buff/tan color white out for to make a correction on buff/tan color business cards. I suppose someone might want to make corrections on any color paper.
