I managed to design a laser-cut seal from layers of acrylic and sheet rubber for a 7.5x7.5" glass craft block to be a globe for my lamp. The rubber layers are offset slightly larger than the acrylic and when alternated, make some nice 'ribs' that make a good seal inside the molded opening in the glass. It's not perfect. I still get a slow drip, but that could be through the hardware holes and a bit of silicone could possibly fully seal that.Will this whole thing work because it's square? I…Continue
High folks,some days ago I purchased an Astrobaby bottle, and now I want to modificate it.The colorway is violet-tourquoise. I thought this combination was only sold for Neos, but this one is clearly an Astrobaby without any plastic coating. The violet is pale and washed out in comparison to the violet-tourquoise Neo I have in my collection.I plan to fade away the violet completely and then dye the clear liquid yellow, to reproduce the phantastic yellow-tourquoise Astro colorway, which was…Continue
Hai everyone! Just want to say this place is awesome, I never expected to find such massed enthusiasm for Lava Lamps!anyway, I really need help with something.I love my lamp. I rescued it from being thrown away when it's old owner didn't want it anymore. It took me a long time to find just the right lightbulb for it, but once I had that it worked a treat!It worked just how I expected a lava lamp to for about a month. Then solid bits of the lava started to build against the side of the glass,…Continue
When you aren't using the box it came in, how do you package your lava lamps when you're planning to move? Do you keep each lamp together or separate them into globes and bases?Milk crates, or Any particularly good box types or places to look out for? And what about Dividers, Bubble wrap, or just using clothes?I have moved my collection before using a variety of methods but figured I'd ask the community for tips and tricks I haven't thought of. Mostly referring to regular sizes.Pictures…Continue
I've made several different colors of wax/fluid for lamps and I've attempted a few times to get a nice purple color for the fluid for a lamp with yellow wax. I use McCormick liquid food dye for my fluids and have been generally happy with the colors I can get with them. But I wasn't super happy with the result when making purple fluid and thought I went too dark. The tricky part is I'm not sure how to get a nice color for the fluid when the lamp is lit up. Too light, and I don't think it's…Continue
What is good fellow lava friends,I am in search of a 32 oz size white/purple #20 globe with some dark purple fluid.Only seeking the globe and I would like to purchase, or also have a few things to trade such as a faded #20 that looks light bubblegum pink and cute when running. I just prefer to find a darker #20.Please let me know if you have anything and thank you.Continue
Just joined Oozinggoo. I posted this on reddit in the lava lamp community, and thought I might as well share it here as my introduction.So I recently got into lava lamps and decided to design my own after fixing up a Soviet one from Ukraine. My design is similar to it, however I tried to go more mid-century modern with the forms and stand. Definitely going for a…Continue

Hey you wonderful goo-loving sweeties! I just scored my first aristocrat off of ebay and am wondering if you could help me figure out a couple of things about it.
1. Is the base rare? It seems to have a more stretched out…Continue
