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.
That's for you to drink
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.
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. I just think it with vodka. Rubbing alcohol works too. I just never know where the rubbing alcohol is. Vodka, I can find. If you use water, you need distilled water so bacteria won't cause mold or mildew
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.
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.
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.
Are there any natural resources in White Out? If so, what are they, and how are they used in it?
