    Giant Won't Flow - To open or not to open?

    Started by Sentrex in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Critter 1 hour ago. 15 Replies

    I was really excited to find a Giant purple/ yellow that was barely used, however, it just won't flow like it's brothers and sisters.I know that this color was offered in the 2nd batch and also noted that it has less wax in it than the others which can be seen when it is "cold" and on it's base..When I find NIB smaller lamps it seems like I always have to add some glycerin or PG to increase fluid density or they behave just like this giant. I think that I would need to do the same with this…Continue

    I Destroyed My Carlisle

    Started by Galaxy Gloo in General Goo. Last reply by Mark on Monday. 12 Replies

    Greetings!This is my first post and I thought I should introduce myself. I’m Robert and I live in San Francisco. I joined shortly after I destroyed one of my prized possessions- The Carlisle 300 lava lamp that my mom gave me in 1976. Ever hear that old expression “leave well alone”? Well- I didn’t leave well enough alone and tried to fix what wasn’t really broken. The liquid in said lamp had gotten a bit yellowish over the years (rightfully so)- but was still pretty clear and not cloudy. The…Continue
