    Epsom Salts = Bubbly Wax

    Started by Rafael Benedicto in Problems & Questions. Last reply by teltras 3 hours ago. 6 Replies

    I've recently re-filled a 2-year-old Astro with new water, following precise instructions on how to get it done. I've been happy with the results during the first two days. But on the 3rd day the wax just stopped moving and stayed on the bottom forming a balloon-like shape that just won't rise, even when it's been turned on for 6 hours. So I figured the water wasn't heavy enough, therefore I need to make it more dense by adding epsom salts into the water. So I dissolved some epsom salts in a…Continue

    Lets figure out the original lava lite formula..I have a good start

    Started by Autumn in General Goo. Last reply by teltras 21 hours ago. 22 Replies

    Through my struggles to revive my consort lamp I have discovered a few interesting things. The reason why most people dont get their consorts running is because the formula they are using simply wont work. The liquid used in consorts is only slightly more dense than water. Waters density is 1,000 kg/m3 while a consorts fluid is slightly denser.Heres a handy chart to give you an idea of how dense things are.…Continue

    Started by Richard Zhang in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Claude J on Friday. 29 Replies

    It's been three weeks since I made this lamp, and now the wax is sticking to the sides. Why is this happening? I meticulously cleaned the bottle and coated it with surfactant before adding the wax, and this is the result. Is there a way to solve this issue without having to start over again?Continue
