After extensive testing, I'm now offering many NEW glitter colors in clear fast liquid. They are gorgeous! Here are a few of the options. I'll post them all below in this discussion and in my videos.I've also developed replacement slow glitter formulas for the Florence Art, Heat Tapes, Mastercrafters, and Crestworth glitter lamps of the 60s and 70s. The liquid in these formulas is non-flammable, non-combustible, and much less toxic than the fast, solvent-based liquid. …Continue

I've got a blue/white giant globe that I absolutely love, but its got a hairline crack in the globe. I want to transfer the contents to a grande globe that I have but im worried that the thinner glass might affect how the lamp acts. Should I focus on finding a giant globe for the transfer or should I go ahead with the grande switch? Continue
My friend has a very long wall fish tank - 7.6ft long, 4 inches wide, 10 inches tall and is thinking about making it into a lamp. The base is wood so heating will have to be from the side at the base.The issues I see with this idea is- It may not withstand the temperature changes as it is not one piece of glass.- The width of the tank is only 4 inches this may not be enough to get aducatue heat distribution for a good flow.- As the heat source wont be directly under the wax it could be heated…Continue
Well i confess i bought this recently and arrived today, the wax etc is totaly beyond saving, The wax was soft but not liquid like the princess / rocket floor standing, The bottle diameter reminds me of the lunar.It takes around 5 litres at the moment ive used 2 x Astro wax and filled rest with yellow master fluid but till it melts can say if i have enough wax.The bottle is like the 70s pickle egg / onion jars, it takes a standard size bulb ive put a 40watt in it and the bulb hangs down like…Continue
This is my first post in quite a while, kind of feel like I am coming back home LOL Became a homeowner over a year ago, and just starting to feel settled. Now have time to enjoy Lava more again and contribute / interact more.So I got this "Fantasy Light" I found nearby. When I saw it, I remembered they used to be sold in some department stores in the very early 2000's I think. I got it for $5! It came without a cap, so threw this on it for now.First impression was the globe is fat and heavy…Continue
Hi,I GooKitted a small lamp a few years ago and it ran well for a while. The wax has begun sticking to the bottle, at first it was just at the top but now it's all over the entire thing. I thought there may have been some kind of residue on the inside of the globe, so I removed the master fluid and the wax and cleaned the bottle thoroughly (using the soap and shake method) and....I still have wax sticking. On top of that, there seem to be wax "crystals" floating around that do not want to…Continue
Hey guys, I'm new here and I have a little dilemma.. (warning, this is a rant - if you want to skip to the actual issue scroll down) A couple weeks ago I was prompted with finally FINALLY going into my' attic and downsizing on things I no longer want, need or use. Old clothes, books I never read or lost interest in, stuff from highschool and ..... what's this? BEHOLD! My' two old midnight series lava lamps "well the only two that survived out of the four I had"... wowies! Brought back…Continue
I think i have finally found a dye that mimics lava lite purple liquid perfectly using purple Sharpie brand highlighters. It has to be "SHARPIE" brand, otherwise the off brands i have tried seem to give the liquid a hazy neon pinkish orange tint that just ruins the lamp. I thought i'd share this since I haven't found any other posts relating to this. this is the third run on this lamp without any fading so far! Continue
