I'm making a YouTube channel for all my projects and build voicovers. Mostly my custom designed concrete lava lamps (all open source), but also anything else that would befit a supervillian lair. Supersized board games, mid-century designs for lighting and furniture, 3D printing / laser cutting projects, and more weird lava stuff. You'll likely also see my two cats (Siegfried & Roy) often.Current schedule is to launch before the end of next year with a few build videos. I will still be…Continue
Hello, I am looking for a source of glitter, preferably 10*10 mm silver squares. It needs to be resistant to a calcium nitrate solution or maybe even also perchloroethylene.Holographic would also be nice, even though I think I have some 5mm tinsel curtain that actually works. My 10*10 mylar confetti seems to look worse after getting into my nitrate solution, but not eaten away yet (it's been a few weeks). It's also maybe a little too transparent.I'm based in Denmark, EU.Continue
I’ve never seen a Crestworth lamp box (Astro Mini) of any kind on tv before and may never see one again so I’m glad I took a snap of one recently seen on tv here in the U.K. The program was about an auction house set up in Yorkshire northern England. They do house clearances and auctions.Continue
A completely new lamp is being launched on the 2nd Nov. Can't link the picture sorry. Won't let me.But looks die cast, and possibly looking at the curvature it might be taking an astro bottle. And first 100 out the window. Now a lottery of all the orders placed on the same day. Seems irrelevant to still call it first 100 when it isn't. What are your thoughts on what it might be? Continue
I stumbled across one of my bucket list globes on Facebook marketplace a #21 red wax purple liquid silver streak edition. Got it for an amazing price from a nice old hippy lady in the older part of town. The spring is broken and sticks up a bit but it flows fine and the wax shrouds the spring so when it's fully flowing you don't see it, I plan on fixing it this weekend but otherwise super happy to have this color combo it's one of my favorites Continue
Hello again lava lovers,Please see the attached video for an example of the problem I am having. I have the same problem with a couple of lamps and wondered if maybe this is a sign of a bad coil? A single bubble shoots up out of nowhere and sticks at the top with some of the wax that comes with it. You could time the bubble coming up from the bottom- it’s fairly frequent. Almost like a hiccup or something. Do you suppose it’s a coil that has a tiny area that the wax has not taken a liking…Continue
I want to change the color of the wax in my grande lamp. I have liquid wax dye. Since the dye is an oil, I am afraid if I add a lot of dye to make a rich or a dark color, it will thin out the wax and make it too “oily” and disrupt the balance between water and wax. Have you tried liquid wax dye? What was your experience?Continue
Hi allim looking at selling my Astro lantern. I’m going to put it on eBay but I don’t know much about it.I understand they made a couple of models of this lamp. How would I find out which model I have, and what years this was in production?Many thanks Darren Continue

Hello Everybody,I finally have all the components I need to begin assembly (well, after a few days of polishing I can begin assembling, grr... I hate polishing.)The spun aluminium nose cones, bases and 'booster' rocket pods are completed!Whoo hoo!Here are crude mock ups of how each lamp will look (bear in mind, none have wiring or are polished yet) each one is shown next…Continue
It's tragic, I first made a profile here forever ago, intending to dive right into the lava community after falling in love with my new neon pink Heritage Grande. Unfortunately, that lamp stopped flowing completely not long after I got it... I…Continue
