    Grande/Giant Globe Cleaning Device - Holy %#@*!!!

    Started by Jim in General Goo. Last reply by kero48 17 hours ago. 25 Replies

    So, if I drop a benjamin on Neon globes to refill a Grande, damned straight I'm going to doosh that globe and get it as clean as possible.  So I'm thinking I will need to head out and blow an hour finding just the right thing.  I had just what I needed at home.  The handle from some Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaning apparatus and a common sponge.  Sponge gets wet and you have no trouble clearing the mouth of the globe, the handle with just the right bend, you get it.  This thing should be…Continue

    Crestworth 'Astro Slimline' Box

    Started by Anthony P in Collecting. Last reply by Johnny 19 hours ago. 9 Replies

    Hello everyoneYesterday I was browsing my local vintage emporium store when I found a boxed Crestworth Astro Mini for £20. I instantly picked it up and inspected it and found it to not have the original bottle but a Mathmos Glitterbaby bottle (Which I am now using in my Mathmos Neo). I also found inside the box a late Crestworth brochure / poster which I hope to get framed at some point. As I was walking around with the box I realized something wasn't quite as as expected so I inspected further…Continue

    Cleaning a horribly dirty bottle while leaving wax in bottom intact

    Started by kero48 in Problems & Questions. Last reply by kero48 on Friday. 6 Replies

    So won't go into a song a dance about the grande I just got, no sense repeating the entire store.Last night after letting it burn for almost 5 hours, it seems the lava does have some life left in it but how much life is not known as I need a flashlight to see what it's doing but it does make columns and some huge blobs with little blobs that fall of it like rain drops. The columns were odd though, kinda like sperms with a head and long string tails but in the shape of intestines if that makes…Continue

    Surfactant Help Please (SLES)?

    Started by Sentrex in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Keith on Friday. 2 Replies

    I bought a gallon of 100% pure SLES and it  "bricks" or basically loses all viscosity when it hits H2O.  Has anyone ever tried reducing it down to the 28% SLES solutions that are typically sold on ebay and if so how did you do it (I mixed it for 20 minutes by hand and still pretty chunky).What do all or any of you use for Surf? I am starting to doubt the SLES.....I was gonna buy some from surf magma but they really hose you on the shipping.... but if it's worth it then maybe.Any words of wisdom…Continue

    New Find - What to do with this grande?

    Started by kero48 in Collecting. Last reply by kero48 on Thursday. 15 Replies

    So I never thought I would find one of these locally but I guess I was wrong. I knew it was cloudy before buying it but didn't pay that much so I felt it was worth it.See attached photos.I was surprised to see the box marked with 2004 date. The box even shows a photo of a grande glitter model that I did not know they ever made. Would love to find one of those. Has anyone see one in person that was original and not converted?The box also has a photo of lava lamp table lamp, lava outdoor,…Continue

    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

    Well I must say that this site is quite a surprise to me. Who would have known there was a community of people obsessed by the ooze.

    Well I hope to meet some of you guys and what not.

    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
