multi-colored tippex (white out)

when you don't need to white out, but you need to blend
  [vote for,

While tediously re-labeling manila filing folders at work I wondered why there was only WHITE white out. They should have an assortment of blended colors to match the folders that are made for sale. So if a company manufactures a set of loden folders, they similarly should have a team of designers to match a suitable "white out" or tippex color to match. Manila, loden, black, blue... that would be splendid.

       Transparent Tippex?

       I find two references on Google to "coloured Tippex" (both of which, somewhat bizarrely, relate to marking animals), so I assume it must be available.
There are 13 references to "colored liquid paper", and again 2 use the product to mark crickets.
Instead of checking the stationery cupboard, perhaps you should be looking in the pet store.

       I'm *sure* I remember this being available in the US, perhaps 15 years ago--correction fluid in all different colors to match different office papers. I can picture the photo in the office supply catalog with all the little brushes laid out in a wheel shape to display the colors. (I don't remember any black, but there was blue, green, yellow, probably pink...) But I can't find them now, and it seems no one else can either.

       Like [Etymon], I can remember these too from about 20-15 years ago. A whole array of office paper shades. I've just checked our current suppliers and they don't carry it any more.

       baked, but left out too long and needs some more time in the oven... I call it: BBLOTLANSMTITO, a rare breed, different from baked, but left out too long on purpose, BBLOTLOP. Now, surely, the bakery needs more real ideas than BBLOTLANSMTITOs or BBLOTLOPs, but if your put one down, I'd rather see a BBLOTLANSMTITO than a BBLOTLOP...
