    Fantasia Glitter Lamp low fluid?

    Started by benson41011 in Problems & Questions 52 minutes ago. 0 Replies

    I got a Fantasia glitter lamp a few days ago, it's got about an inch of fluid missing. I heard that these have perchloroethylene, the toxic fluid. Is there any way to top this lamp off? Or will I need to find a donor lamp for fluid?Continue

    Replacement Screw Cap plans for 60-70's lamp upload

    Started by Duane K in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Sean Savage 11 hours ago. 56 Replies

    Hello all, first time here.I have an old lamp that was my grandma's and I'm a little sentimental about it.  It must be early 70's minimum because I remember it as a child.  I'm sure you all can probably identify it and that might help what I'm trying to do here.  A few years ago the cap cracked, it got cloudy and didn't work good anymore.  I'm in the process of trying to restore it, using the lava formula I found here.  I was about to say goodbye to it because I could not find a replacement…Continue

    Hey everyone!I'm currently working on a speaker that combines lava with sound - so it's actually the vibrations of the music that make the lava move.So far I've given a new form to the speaker where its been fused with acrylic and I will do testing with the lava over the next couple of days.I'd love to get some feedback about what you think so far - your thoughts and general goo wisdom is very welcome!Thanks :)…Continue

    Trying to crack the original formula- why was kerosene used?

    Started by Ant Bee in General Goo. Last reply by Ant Bee on Saturday. 72 Replies

    In my quest to figure out exactly what the original formula is, one thing I haven't figured out is why they used Kerosene in the mixture.  It seems like it was a very small part of the mixture, something like 7% by volume.But what was the point?  Did it act as a preservative, or enhance the flow, or help to bind everything together?Speculations?Continue

    Brand new batch of Fantasia Cosmos 2 lamps for sale soon

    Started by jmpenny32 in Collecting. Last reply by Robert Israel on Saturday. 19 Replies

    Well, never did i think after building the first Fantasia Cosmos 2 lamp that I would not only regret that sale but also the amount of requests I have gotten over the past few years from multiple sources to please build more. So I decided to invest in the project and have a whole new batch built, each one by me right here in my home, (4 total). My inspiration and motivation to build even the first one came from the endless hunt for a Cosmos lamp only to miss out on every opportunity that came my…Continue

    Water bath treatment to remove wax build up on glass

    Started by Michael Strong in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Susan on Friday. 8 Replies

    Hey everyone, so I watched a Mathmos documentary, and they showed a part of the manufacturing process after everything was bottled up where they submerge the bottled in hot water to separate the liquids and remove wax sticking from the glass. So I have a bottle that has this issue, and I  was wondering if anyone knew the temperature they heated the bottles up in that water treatment process.Continue
