    Hello Goo headsI've recently mixed new batch of wax using classic wax+perc formula for my girlfriend.She've seen lava lamp first time in my room and she's more interested in it than me so I decided to redo a unused lamp I have for her :DI used some ooooold, big piece of white wax (transparent after melting), weighted correctly and poured into bottle. Lamp worked really good - nice flow and clear wax/clear liquid was making interesting "lens" effect. I ordered green wax coloring for the final…Continue

    Website issues

    Started by Ian in OG Network Talk. Last reply by Carol Morrow 12 hours ago. 12 Replies

    Hey so I have been having issues with the site, as in ads keep popping up instead of the content I'm trying to get to. I have never had this issue, anyone else experiencing this? Like there are a few links to photos I want to click on (mainly having to do with the for sale listings) and it takes me to an ad instead of the photo. And there is no way to get to the actual photo. I haven't been on the site on my computer in a long time, only on my phone but I have never had an issue before.

    Heat Tapes Stardust Green Glitter Lamp Restored

    Started by Kirk in Collecting. Last reply by Kirk yesterday. 38 Replies

    I traded Brad some liquid and glitter to fill his Grande for a green Heat Tapes Stardust lamp that needed work.  It was one of two that he got from his grandmother.  He trusted me to give it a good home and bring it back to life.  I think your Grandma will be pleased, Brad.I replaced the socket and kept all the original wiring and the original cord and plug.  The liquid and glitter were not original — they were more modern.   I also discovered glass shards on the bottom of the bottle, probably…Continue
