    Epsom Salts = Bubbly Wax

    Started by Rafael Benedicto in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Pierre Brazeau on Monday. 10 Replies

    I've recently re-filled a 2-year-old Astro with new water, following precise instructions on how to get it done. I've been happy with the results during the first two days. But on the 3rd day the wax just stopped moving and stayed on the bottom forming a balloon-like shape that just won't rise, even when it's been turned on for 6 hours. So I figured the water wasn't heavy enough, therefore I need to make it more dense by adding epsom salts into the water. So I dissolved some epsom salts in a…Continue

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know to grab your wallet and head over to eBay! A seller (Cindy) wonderful lady! Anyhow she came across a massive buy on a fiber optic lamp that has the super long fiber optic sprays and are full. They are plastic fibers but display beautifully! They have a cooling fan and are lit with a 35 watt halogen bulb, the fibers and color wheel rotate. She has a video that demonstrates the motion of the lamp on YouTube. Pictures and videos hardly do this lamp…Continue

    Chinese, or a pure fake?

Interested to see what you guys and gals think. I'm guessing a fake just based on the code printed on the cap.i have a bunch of bases that have been all mixed up so I don't know what base it had with it.  …Continue

    Ok I really dont know where to start, im bewildered with lava info...Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting with a former LavaSimplex/World worker (from 1988 to 2002) and I spent a hour picking his brain and have acquired a wealth of info AND a 1991 video that shows all kinds of test color lamps and bases, waves, LavaLarry, GemLites etc.This is where the problem starts... the video is copyrighted and I promised not to upload it to the internet and will not break that promise....BUT he OK'd…Continue

    Brand new batch of Fantasia Cosmos 2 lamps for sale soon

    Started by jmpenny32 in Collecting. Last reply by Ziggy Feb 19. 18 Replies

    Well, never did i think after building the first Fantasia Cosmos 2 lamp that I would not only regret that sale but also the amount of requests I have gotten over the past few years from multiple sources to please build more. So I decided to invest in the project and have a whole new batch built, each one by me right here in my home, (4 total). My inspiration and motivation to build even the first one came from the endless hunt for a Cosmos lamp only to miss out on every opportunity that came my…Continue

    Started by Michelle Lee in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Aaron Rodgers Feb 15. 3 Replies

I have a 32 oz. blue liquid white wax lamp, if that info is necessary or helpful, and am not particular about the color of wax I am looking for.  thanks!Continue
