I have been slowly acquiring throughout the year refills for my Distress Inks (many of which seem to be on the dry side at the time of purchase). This past week I re-inked quite a few of them and did the rest this afternoon -- all except Aged Mahogany. That particular refill bottle is as thick as sludge and is therefore useless. This bottle had not been previously opened. I sent an e-mail to Ranger but have not yet received any reply. Do any of you know whether this ink can be thinned and, if so, with what? Thanks for any suggestions.
Well, everyone was right! Ranger does have excellent customer service. I still do not know if the inks can be thinned with water or anything else, but they are sending me a new bottle! Wow! I never expected that. Since I will have a new bottle and there is therefore no risk of loss, I think I'll experiment with that sludge and see if anything works. Thanks to you all for answering.
