    Returned the 32oz and got a 52 oz much better

    Started by kero48 in Collecting. Last reply by Keith 20 minutes ago. 5 Replies

    So, I returned the 32oz I bought a week or so ago from walmart (posted about the bubbles) and bought a 52oz model from spencers. I don't think $29.99 is that bad of a price for a model that is a bit larger.Got the clear liquid with neon green wax and has been breaking in so to speak since Monday evening.So much better in terms of size and lava flow. The attached photos don't really do it justice. The liquid is very clear and the lava is very neon green.3 days in and the bubbles in the lava have…Continue

    I'm still searching for a good condition #22 USA globe in a 32 ounce size. This is the one with the blue fluid and purple wax. I did have one nailed down recently, but it was lost by FedEx on its way to me.

    Fast & Slow Glitter Liquid for Sale! *NEW* Glitter Options

    Started by Kirk in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by kero48 yesterday. 665 Replies

    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

    Bad Lava ?

    Started by Steve Fetter in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Christian BayLee yesterday. 7 Replies

    I have been rebuilding lamps for quite a while now. Just opened a new quart of lava from Goo Kits. Rebuilding a accent and a mid size lamp. I believe I have a bad batch of lava. I cannot get this new batch to separate. The more salt or dispersant you add, the lava just makes a ball at the end of a stem from the bottom. The more chemicals, the higher the ball in the globe. Replaced water several times and get the same result.As I said, I have been rebuilding lamps with consistent success using…Continue

    Four-chamber vintage liquor bottle-- glitter lamp?

    Started by Jonas Clark-Elliott in Collecting on Tuesday. 0 Replies

    After seeing some of these which had been made into flasks by some cosplayers, I hunted down one of these on eBay. French, 1950s? I know I've seen them with a label on each quadrant for four different liqueurs. Sometimes they have a sticker reading "Fait Main" (hand made). I'm crossing my fingers that it'll fit in an Aristocrat or Century base.It has the four original plastic stoppers. I'd like to fill it with four colors of Kirk's slow glitter-- probably blue, purple, orange, green-- assuming…Continue

    Crestworth Galaxy Wiring - Help!!

    Started by Lee in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Tribble on Monday. 8 Replies

    Hi all,I bought a Crestworh Galaxy today that at some point in its life has been given a base extension - see pics.  I kind of think that it works but a matter of taste I suppose.Anyhow, the lamp has stopped working - I tried the usual suspects such as the plug and fuse but these are all okay.  I then opened up the case to discover that the neutral wire has come loose - see pics.  I presume that the loose wire has broken the circuit but unsure where I need to connect it.  Can anyone help…Continue

    So my brother was by a couple weeks ago and knocked over my 1975 lamp. The cap (which was already damaged) broke and all the oil spilled out on my carpet. The wax is still in there and very little oil remains. The oil is up to the wide part of the… Continue
