So I thought... We have a great music thread, random topic thread and various lava/glitter/fiber/rain/plasma/wave/motion image threads. I think we need one to support general photography, unique images and moving pictures (e.g. gifs and other things that move). Maybe it will be a quiet thread maybe it will get rowdy. I could be talking to myself here! Post images that move you, excite you, make you laugh maybe even cry! Express with imagery!Continue
Gang,I have a tall Lunar cylinder from Marcel. I have goo kitted this thing six frigging times and it always sticks. I'm fed up and about to smash this M.F. What can I do to make this thing work before (and I am serious) I do smash this damn thing?BillContinue
Does anyone here have a spare Lava brand base for a 20 oz. globe that they'd like to unload? It's just for a project so I am not at all concerned about the color, finish or general condition, provided, of course, that the base can safely hold a 20 oz. globe upright and that it functions properly. I can't use anything that requires rewiring, but would gladly accept a cast off with cosmetic flaws like dings, scratches, botched paint job and the like. Not at all interested in any valuable…Continue
I bought this Century.. it is a bit cloudy but the flow seems real nice and there are no bubbles. I plan on trying what I can to clear it. I am going to cycle first... I may try Loren's method if that doesn't work (the fog juice and glycerin method). I doubt I will take it to the filtration step since I don't want to spend a fortune on a filter... that will be my limit!I didn't realize until it showed that it has a birthday this month. The cap says March 1974!I started cycling and only realized…Continue
The base is not in good shape (dents), but will find either a nice silver or black base for you, if you like.32oz. blue/red - a fairly rare color combo. Globe is in good shape. Flow is good. No crap in the wax or coil. Year: 1999. Made in the US. Cap code #27.I'm looking for $115 shipped. Continue
The upside is I scored a fairly rare 52oz lava plasma lamp off ebay and I only spent about $28 shipped.On the downside, the seller took a long time to ship it and I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever receive it at all. It arrived today and the lamp was in good shape and works well, but the idiot used the original box as the shipping container! I was able to peel most of the tape and labels off without too much damage to the box label. The seller also wrote on the box with a permanent…Continue
I finally got to the hardware store. I purchased a cord with a socket attached and came to find no 40 watt bulbs fit the size socket said cord came stock with. Branching out of my comfort zone, I bought a ceramic light mounting base and decided…Continue
I just recieved my first Goo Kit,
Can anyone help with some input. There are no instructions, nothing is even marked. As a newbie who has never done a lamp, where do I start. ???
Apology for posting in the wrong…Continue
As of December, I no longer have a vehicle so aside from getting to and from work, I don't get out too much anymore. Lack of transportation has prevented me from getting what I need at the hardware store to make my first lamp... but that goo kit…Continue
