I do this and I suggested it to Carolyn. I have tried adding other
things to my glue and it always smells bad. This method gives nice
colors and doesn't stink and they keep well. I have some black that I
made using this method several years ago and it is still usable. I
bought colored glue and it was so thick we couldn't get it out of the
bottle. I contacted the company and they wouldn't stand behind it so I
ended up throwing it away and losing my valuable budget money as well.
