    New custom lava lamp grande - let's hope this clears up

    Started by kero48 in Collecting. Last reply by kevin pedro 7 hours ago. 11 Replies

    So got my grande today, was excited to take it out of the box but was also nervous knowing the bottle wouldn't be clear. See pics.I can't even run it today as it's in the 20's here and the bottle is ice cold, literally from fedex transport. I have to let it get to room temps over night and run it tomorrow but I have a feeling it won't get crystal clear.Sorry my place is always a mess, no room, gotta get these damn wheels listed and sold lol.I can't even see my hand directly behind the bottle…Continue

    Hey everyone,I happened to be watching a video on a channel on YouTube called ‘The Slow Mo Guys,’ and came across a segment where they destroyed a group of Lava Lamps arranged in a bowling pin formation, dropping a bowling ball from above and then launching another bowling ball at the remaining “lava pin.”  I wanted to share it with everyone here.  Enjoy!https://youtu.be/llv8BFB_k-A?t=10m32sContinue

    Glass paint on bottom of glitter lamp globe?

    Started by Delta in Problems & Questions. Last reply by MileHigh 12 hours ago. 11 Replies

    I recently acquired a silver Glitter Lite lamp (Model 4662X by Lite F/X Attitude Lighting according to sticker on bottom) for $5 at Goodwill.I love how it looks, but would like to find a way for it to have a blue tint. I am *NOT* savvy enough to change the fluid or uncap it to add coloring, so that avenue is out, but I was wondering if anyone has had success in using glass paint on the bottom of a glitter or lava lamp globe to tint the light?I made a short video of the lamp itself, I am using…Continue

    Update on the replacement globe

    Started by kevin pedro in Collecting. Last reply by kevin pedro yesterday. 7 Replies

    I figured I’d show you guys how the replacement globe looks like! It’s still a little flawed with a scratch or two on the globe and a tiny bit of wax stuck on the globe but other than that it’s way nicer than the other one and flows super nicely! Here are some pics.lava lite has superior customer service so I’m at least happy they have that. Continue

    Help! Mathmos bulbs?

    Started by Ouija in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Johnny yesterday. 18 Replies

    What bulbs do you guys use for your Mathmos Astros and Astrobabies? I was at my local Tesco and all the had was rather rubbish looking LED replacements... I left almost having a panic attack! I see on the Mathmos site they are now shipping Astros and Astrobabies with 2 pin halogen bulbs now? What does the future hold? I don't want to spend a fortune getting replacement bases. I really need bulbs for my babies!Continue
