I want to paint some of my Aristocrat Bases and Caps. Any ideas for paint or methods? I've never done this before. I want to do a black of some kind... preferably glossy. I heard car paint works well? Any ideas? I need some direction before I go messing stuff up!
Hey guys,I have my blue/ blue Mathmos flowing right now. The wax looks purple, why is this? Can someone shed light on why this happens? The wax looks blue when it is cool but when it's running it looks purple. As with all the Mathmos lamps, I have rewired it according to Brad's instructional. I hope to read from you soon, thanks!Continue
I recently purchased the lamp on the right. The bottom green felt is stamped Sep 1976. It came with a red/clear globe. Does anyone have any information on this "squiggle" type finish? There is a clear coat over the brown paint squiggles. There are more photos in my pictures. …Continue
I need to thin the herd a bit. I took a hard look at the lamps I have and if a lamp didn't get me happy to see it, it went into the "put it up for sale" pile. Not looking to make a killing, just looking to get them to good homes where they will be enjoyed and appreciated.Shipping will be at cost.1. Copper Coachlite: Dated Sept. 1971, green fluid with what I assume started life as white wax which now looks slightly yellowish white. Flows well with a dimmer. Overall in nice shape for a 44…Continue
I was at a local store where the guy sells stuff he gets at estate sales and other similar places. I've been going out there since I was just a baby, so the owner knows me, and tries to help me out. I found this Mediterranean base. Its pretty beat up, and the bottle is missing. We looked for about 2 hours for the bottle. His place is huge. It is like 2 basketball court size rooms with stuff just everywhere, nearly stacked to the ceiling. We didn't find it, and he gave me the base. Now I just…Continue

HI! I'm an italian guy so sorry for my BAD english! I bought my first lava lamp this january, a Mathmos Astro. As often happens, the original bulb was broken, so I subsitituted it with a new one: a Philips 42W bulb that you can see in this photo:However, after a few hours I can see that there too much smal lava bubbles,…Continue
