    Fast & Slow Glitter Liquid for Sale! *NEW* Glitter Options

    Started by Kirk in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Kirk 9 hours ago. 622 Replies

    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

    Replacement Screw Cap plans for 60-70's lamp upload

    Started by Duane Kucinich in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Erin 11 hours ago. 8 Replies

    Hello all, first time here.I have an old lamp that was my grandma's and I'm a little sentimental about it.  It must be early 70's minimum because I remember it as a child.  I'm sure you all can probably identify it and that might help what I'm trying to do here.  A few years ago the cap cracked, it got cloudy and didn't work good anymore.  I'm in the process of trying to restore it, using the lava formula I found here.  I was about to say goodbye to it because I could not find a replacement…Continue

    Royale lava lamp

    So has anyone purchased or seen the 80 ounce royale lamp that lava lite released a couple months ago? I wanted to see a real picture of one. I tried looking it up but found that they have removed it from their website, and also the video on their YouTube chanel, and removed it from their size chart as well.? I know I wasn't imagining it!? So strange!Continue

    Mathmos - Power Converter or Bulb?

    Started by Sentrex in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Kelly on Wednesday. 6 Replies

    Hi Folks -In a fit of lava induced euphoria I ordered my first Mathmos Astro and now need to figure out how I am going to get it flowing once it arrives....Seems that there are two camps here - (1) Power Converter and (2) Light Bulbs.Some posters indicate that a simple plug converter and 130V bulb is sufficient - no need for a converter or re-wiring...  …Continue

    Help with a rare rocket lamp

    Started by Daniel Bakken in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Daniel Bakken on Wednesday. 2 Replies

    Hello, just joined to see if I could get more information about my lamp, and how to fix the bottle. I believe I bought this lamp at Spencers, it was a demo model, not perfect condition in about 2002. It has been in storage for about 8 years, but it acts funky. The main problem seems to be some wax will stick along a particular side of the bottle whenever I try to run it. The lava also doesn't seem very active. I'm almost guessing the glass along that side might have been etched during storage,…Continue
