So yesterday i bought a clear water/ purple wax Premier 16.3'' lava lamp. Plugged it in at around 4pm and left it running throughout the night.The wax expanded but never actually flowed. Around Midnight it started to have some float up and down, but a lot collected at the top and never actually came back down. So i went to sleep and that is where i left it.Woke up this morning, around 6am, and the lava lamp was still doing the same thing, a very slow flow with a lot of wax collected at the top…Continue
I have used GEL WAX to make lava goo, using the perc and epsom salt way , you can do the melting in the lava bottle and when it cools it stays as a liquid due to the perc content , when you start to pour the water into the lava lamp bottle, you SHOULD see the COOL liquid GEL WAX staying under the water (IF NOT empty the water / reheat / add a bit more perc / cool and try again.Once you have the GEL WAX not floating , fill bottle 3/4 with water , turn lamp on heat up the water and then…Continue

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
Grabbed two ceramic series at an auction but when they shipped the lamps the packaging was for crap and both caps broke... so utterly disappointing to hear the shattered ceramic upon arrival.... box is mint, bases are still intact, globes are shot to hell with rust... I just wish they had packed the caps correctly (sigh)I know it's a long shot but would be interested in any similar ceramic caps if anyone has them.Continue
Picked up what appears to be a "Loren" glitter lamp with the #8 on it that appears to be signed by dale Earnhardt for $20 today.Are these lamps any good? Have read the boards here but can't really find too much on the original lamp manufacturer? Looks like Loren imported them is all I can tell.Thanks.Continue

Friends,So a short while back I posted a link to craigslist which had a Humongo listed for over five grand. Long story short, no one was interested so I called and made an offer and, a couple headaches and eleven hundred after shipping later, I have a fourth one sitting in the living room.The other three we have are pristine but this one is not without problems. The first time I ran it, the pressure in the bottle blew the cap off which was a first for me so I am now stuck with an open bottle.…Continue
