Hello fellow GooHeads! After a couple years lying mostly dormant save picking up a lamp here and there, my lava love has reignited in full swing and I'm back on the hunt! Was pleased to see I managed to (somehow) remember my login credentials and that so many familiar faces are still here on the goo! :)My next lava mission, I've decided is to complete my Elek-Trik Rainbow, having recently acquired a purple and blue to accompany the orange and yellow. It's great to be back!- Michaelaka "Lava…Continue
I have made new recipe for motion lamps that adds a 21st century twist to them AND brings back the nostalgic 'flow' that seems to be missed by many connoisseurs of the lava lamp.

In fact, I hope to get event he bottles made in the USA one day!Please check out my kickstarter…Continue

It doesn't flow all that great, and the lava is usually translucent purple as soon as it starts flowing. It's also kind of filmy on the inside of the glass. It does flow though, and I didn't pay a dime for it. I'm just wondering if it's worth keeping or if I should try giving it away and getting my newly acquired…Continue
