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
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
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
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

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
Does anyone know what type of lamp this is or how I could get it working again. I think it is French and form the 60/70s. I bought it c 1990. I took it out after 10 years just now and liquid bubbled around for 20 minutes when the light was on but then stopped.Does anyone know how I could replace the liquid?Many thanksContinue
