If the paint is hard, you're out of luck. Once or nearly dried, nothing will bring it back to useable shape again.

A number of people have suggested I should try flow improver rather than straight water, but the Liquitex Flow Improver I use indicates it should be used sparingly to avoid negatively affecting the adhesion of paints. So, to be safe, I use only distilled water.
I don't know if it applies to Reaper or other miniature acrylic paint, but in the past I experienced problems with paint that had been stored for several months separating even though there was plenty of liquid in the bottle. Basically, the pigment would sink to a sludge on the bottom which formed lumps when I tried to mix the paint. So, although it may be unnecessary, I shake up all my paints up during by regular inspections to keep the pigment in suspension.
