Update 2: As you can see from pic, I pulled the trigger on the PG.I figured if I was gonna build some lamps I might as well do it right.Chucked all wax and liquids I had mixed thus far.Cleaned bottle and went with 70% wax to 30% Brakleen, Distilled Water with PG till I got action.Teeny bit of dish soap - not even a full drop.Kinda like the mini balls floating but still up for more suggestions from here.Continue

After many months of frustration I have finally figured out the cure for wax sticking to the glass. I am confident that this will work for most people. Its very simple actually. Empty the globe and fill it completely full of gasoline. Let it sit over night, rinse it out with dawn dish soap, then refill the globe with the original contents. When you refill the globe be sure to put a little bit of liquid in it first and swish it around because the gasoline strips the lamp of all surfactant. I…Continue
Found this beautiful glitter Lamp in my new House.Does anybody now how old it is, maybe a manufacturer and how much it could be worth?Thank you BHorstContinue
Hello. I saw some really old posts about the Mille Luci Glitter Lamp. Hopefully, there are some people around that still have an interest and can answer a couple of questions.I picked one up for $10 at a Goodwill and it still works just fine. However, it's only 1/2 full. I was wondering if that's how these were actually designed? Based on the patent documents, I'm guessing it's not. The 2 ingredients that make up the liquid are trichloroethylene ((900 gr (brake cleaning fluid)) and…Continue
So, I've seen everyone's pics of how they display a large number of lamps, but if you could do anything to showcase your lamps, what would it be? My DH has set aside a full third of the basement to be the Lava Lounge. He's setting aside 220 amp service for the area, so power will not be an issue. He's willing (and able) to build whatever shelving I want. I'm thinking that all of the Grandes should be together, Safari Series, Psychedelics, etc. (There are only a few lamps that I don't have…Continue
Does anyone have any experience with using powder pigments?I seem to recall reading somewhere that Haggerty used powder pigments from Crayola.The reason I ask, is that I've seen a few "interesting" colors and was wondering if it's worth the time to pursue further and how these powder transfer from the candlemaking industry to lava lamps applications. Not so much interested in Mica due to separation issues.Thinking out loud,.. Has anyone used a chemical to pre-mix them in order to enhance…Continue
first , ty for accepting me into your community.ive been browsing the forums for a couple weeks now trying to find a solution.; the wax in my century just melts and sits motionless.ive tried reducing the wattage of the bulb. i havent tried a dimmer yet, but even when the lamp is turned off and begins to cool nothing happens. the wax does melt really quick, and if you slowly tilt the glass, you can see movement, but nothing rises or bubbles up. ive added an epsom salt mixtuire, but that did…Continue
