    Yes you can get 20% off if you buy 2 neon colored Neo lamps or 20% off any  2 io lamps. Wowwy wee I'm bowled over. Not. How to get rid of excess lamps that nobody wants? How about a proper sale. Like a free bottle with any lamp purchased. Or 20% off any 2 lamps. Not just the stuff you want rid of. Please stop insulting our intelligence. Continue

    I finally snagged a #21

    Started by MacRanium in Collecting. Last reply by Galaxy_9 Nov 21. 1 Reply

    I stumbled across one of my bucket list globes on Facebook marketplace a #21 red wax purple liquid silver streak edition. Got it for an amazing price from a nice old hippy lady in the older part of town. The spring is broken and sticks up a bit but it flows fine and the wax shrouds the spring so when it's fully flowing you don't see it, I plan on fixing it this weekend but otherwise super happy to have this color combo it's one of my favorites Continue

    Grande 100w replacement bulb

    Started by Mark Golebiowski in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Galaxy_9 Nov 21. 2 Replies

    Hi Everyone,I have always replaced my Grande bulbs with the clear 100w reflector bulbs, which are expensive.I noticed that you can get frosted ones for much cheaper. I was under the impression that the clear reflector bulbs concentrate the heat better and the frosted ones wouldn't work. But I saw this online. Take a look at the circled comments in the screenshot attached. Has anyone used these frosted bulbs? Is there a difference? Does the light they cast look different?Continue

    Epsom Salts = Bubbly Wax

    Started by Rafael Benedicto in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Michael Eskin Nov 18. 11 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

    What bleach for fluid? (Solved)

    Started by Adrian in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Claude J Nov 16. 9 Replies

    (Edit: I had to add more chlorine to make it go clear - 1 ml for an Astro bottle was more than enough. Less could do.)Some people have had success with bleaching fluids to clear. Despite concerns about lava and coil, I want to experiment. I just  What kind of bleach do people use? - Chlorine or chlorine-free? - Product name?- Active ingredient(s)?I just tried chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite) on blue Mathmos fluid, but it turned darker and into indigo!Continue

    Do you have experience with liquid wax dye?

    Started by Mark Golebiowski in Problems & Questions Nov 16. 0 Replies

    I want to change the color of the wax in my grande lamp. I have liquid wax dye. Since the dye is an oil, I am afraid if I add a lot of dye to make a rich or a dark color, it will thin out the wax and make it too “oily” and disrupt the balance between water and wax. Have you tried liquid wax dye? What was your experience?Continue
