    Hi all, I have cleaned out two lava lamps and am starting anew. I have bought some wax and some dye off Ebay and need to know what else apart from distilled water and salt I need to add to get things moving (literally). I tried to add a photo but it is too big to upload. Another question, I have a copper base/top lamp and the wax is runny, anyone know why? as the other two were solid wax I had to melt to get out of the lamps. Thanks in advance for any help given.Continue

    What's the best way to de-bubble wax?

    Started by pspees in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Grum on Sunday. 20 Replies

    I have a lamp that I bought off of ebay about a month ago. When it arrived the wax looked as if it had been shipped hot. Ever since the fluid has cleared up but the wax is extremely bubbly. It seems to get better with time but then it will get worse again. I was wondering what causes this (the bubbles) and what would be the best remedy? Thanks for your input!!

    cloudy ferrofluid lamp

    Started by Mike Sheridan in Problems & Questions. Last reply by k-nano on Friday. 3 Replies

    I have an Inspired Designs ferrofluid lamp. The other day, I noticed the liquid in it is rather hazy. I would like to replace the fluid. I did this once with a cheapo gas pump lamp, using distilled water and surf from a goo kit, and it went from barely visible to crystal clear. What I want to know, is it possible to do this with a the ferrofluid lamp, or will it mess things up?Continue

    Photography Fair

    Started by VOXul in Off Topic. Last reply by VOXul Nov 7. 638 Replies

    So I thought... We have a great music thread, random topic thread and various lava/glitter/fiber/rain/plasma/wave/motion image threads. I think we need one to support general photography, unique images and moving pictures (e.g. gifs and other things that move). Maybe it will be a quiet thread maybe it will get rowdy. I could be talking to myself here! Post images that move you, excite you, make you laugh maybe even cry! Express with imagery!Continue
