    Hi guys.I've just bought received a new GU10 bulb from Mathmos for my heritage Astro. As you probably know, they are very expensive - £9.80 each!When the bulb arrived, I noticed it does come in a little "Mathmos" bulb box.I was wondering if anyone knows whether these Mathmos-branded bulbs are actually any different better than a cheaper bulb I could get up the high street?Thanks!Continue

    Help A Lava Lamp Creating Noob?

    Started by Kitty Capulet in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Keith 21 hours ago. 6 Replies

    Hi everyone! :D I've had one lava lamp as long as I can remember and bought two more this year, on clearance from the Lava Lamp website. They both make me happy, but I've always had ideas for lamps that I've never had an outlet for, and I'm thinking that now's a great time to start bringing them to life. With that being said, I have some questions. :) 1. Is there a source for actual lava lamp bottles? I haven't found anyone who consistently sells empty ones (or full ones that don't work right),…Continue

I am sure these aren't even real…Continue

    Giant Glass

    Started by Rory in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Tim on Wednesday. 8 Replies

    I just obtained my first Giant! Everything was meticulously packed but once I got the lamp set up and turned on I noticed a couple things about the glass on the globe. It looks like there are small cracks around the globe in a few locations, and there is strange streaking on the inside. I know Giant globes are hand-blown, but im not sure if these markings are from that process or not. Let me know what you all think!Continue

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

    Started by Kirk in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Kirk on Wednesday. 637 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

    Need new oil

    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
