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?
You can mix white paint with a little bit of cornstarch... this makes the perfect consistency and the paper is as good as new!
I just took a q-tip and took a tiny little dot and put it on my mess up and it actually worked!
how can I make tinted 'white' out; need for colored envelopes and cards - noe - food coloring not useable since it's water soluble. I guess I just get big cans of oil based paint and use a q-tip?! Not quite... another suggestions?
I think it would be really hard to match a paper color with homemade colored white out. It seems like the correction would show badly. But if you want to try this, I would talk to a craft store and find a water soluable dye or paint to mix with your white base.
Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
Wow! It worked perfectly, never buying whiteout again. :) Thanks!
8 oz of tempera paint (whatever color)
2 oz mineral spirits
2 oz titanium dioxide powder
Put in a blender on medium for 1-2minutes.

What can I use to thin out liquid paper? I find it gets thick too quickly.

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. The brush works best for me.
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.
They make buff/ivory white out.
Yes, but is it still Whiteout? If Whiteout falls in the forest... Still I suppose Pinkout or Buffout just doesn't have the same ring to it.
To get the right color for making your own correction fluid, take the item (paper, envelope, folder, whatever you are attempting to match) to a paint department. Then you just have to hope that one of these concoctions for making your own correction fluids works.
Are there any natural resources in White Out? If so, what are they, and how are they used in it?
