Hi everyone, first time posting for me and I have a couple of problems which I need help with.First off, I bought a lovely floor standing lava lamp. Everything was running perfectly until the bulb needed changing. So, after checking what kind of bulb it needed, I scoured the interweb in search of a new one.Now the bulb in question which is needed is a 50 watt E14 R50. Can I find one? You bet I can't! The closest wattage I can find is a 40 watt or a 60 watt. So I went for the 40 watt, which…Continue
I just got my first ever vintage lamp its one of those gold lamps with the holes in it and paid $77 for it in auction on ebay.. Its a 52oz bottle, red tint to the liquid and red wax.. Dated 1977 under the cap.. And thats the thing, as i took it out of the packaging and looked for the date on the cap thats when i noticed it was cracked from point A to B but more in the back.They packaged this thing great,, wrapped it in a plastic bag first, then 3 layers of bubble wrap, and it was laying…Continue
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
I was able to convert my heritage century into a LED color changing lamp for fairly cheap! roughly $25!!This was the first part I purchased, its a 50w ceramic heater. It gets hot so a dimmer is a must use. You can see the size comparison with the standard bulb. It wont fit in the standard 32oz or 52oz "premier" bases, I tried. The century has a larger bulb opening allowing you to screw it fully in.…Continue

Hello everyone, I know many of you are on the hunt or know of someone on the hunt for replacement fiber optics for their Fantasia lamp. Look no further!! As you all may or may not know already. I am currently in the process of making replacement glass fiber optic sprays. These will be identical to the original Fantasia…Continue
I tried my hand at making some metallic wax and it didn't end well at all. Added two silver sharpies to gookit wax, and all I ended up with was a silver hue, no metallic texture whatsoever. Got any ideas for what I should do to get that shine? Continue
Hello,I recently found 70's Lava lamp at a thrift store, one with red lava and in beautiful condition. I was thrilled because this lamp is a lot nicer looking than my other 70's lamp with green lava that I found at an estate sale many months ago. The green lamp was cloudy when I got it but has cleared up with regular use, the lava is just faded, full of bubbles, and doesn't flow as nice as others, but it still works okay and I have enjoyed using it.After plugging in my new lamp I was amazed at…Continue
