Thin with water, adding a bit at a time. The tahini will react to the water and thicken dramatically before it finally thins out.

Why does tahini seize when liquid is added? Tahini seizes when mixed with liquids because of the high fat/oil content. It's an emulsion that hasn't inverted yet. Just keep adding water and mixing.
