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