    to actually make your ink thicker you can use house paint or molasses

    to make it less opaque use more ink/leather dye and less brake fluid/stainer/nail polish remover

    WELL I DONT KNOW IF THIS IS GOING TO WORK FOR YOU, BUT IT WORKED FOR ME. GET SOME CHALK AND BREAK IT DOWN IN TO A POWDER FORM. ANY COLOR CHALK WORKS JUST GET THE COLOR YOU WANT AND ADD IT TO YOUR INK. IT SHOULD MAKE IT NICE AND THICK. :p

    IF YOU ARE USING THE ORIGINAL INK OF THE KIWI MOP I SAY YOU ADD OTHER THINGS TO IT. JUST TO MAKE IT STAIN. I PERSONALY PUT SOME OF THE INK OF BIC PENS, BLUE AND RED WORK THE BEST. THEN JUST ADD A FEW DROPS OF BRAKE FLUID NOT TOO MUCH CUZ THEN ALL YOU HAVE IN YOUR MOP IF OIL. YOU JUST HAVE TO EXPERIMEND, NEVER BE AFFRAID TO TRY NEW THINGS. :blink:

    when ever you have thick ink or paint to put in a marker you should allways thin it out. Unless its for a mop.

    nah man dont use the silver bucket paint with ount thinning it out a bit it works fine in kiwi mops and like face painters but comeing through a stiff nib like otr montana ect it wont go threw and so dont do that it'll mess ur marker up. just remember ink is usually the best choice for markers.
