I feel like I'm doing something way off with every batch I try to mix and make for my DIY lamps. I typically mix three bottles at a time with wax and fluid, since the last time I tried reusing leftover mixed lava wax, it wouldn't sink in pure distilled water indicating it was somehow losing density. I've had a lot of issues getting decent flow and lately anything to balance and flow at all. Last six bottles (two runs) seem to be duds and I'm trying not to get too frustrated with the process.Any…Continue
Hi there, I bought a US Telstar from someone on this forum some years ago, and unfortunately the bulb has been burned out for awhile because I haven't been able to figure out where to get a proper replacement. Is there anyone who might be able to point me in the right direction towards finding a replacement that will work with this lamp? I really appreciate any help, and I'm sorry in advance if there is some obvious answer to this that I'm oblivious to. Continue
Due to an unfortunate dresser disaster, The globe of my beloved century lamp (circa 1977) shattered. I now have a good base, screw cap, coil and 98% of the original red goo. I’m looking to buy an affordable screw top century globe, or will sell the cap, base, coil and goo. TIAContinue
This simply stunning and superb vintage fibre optic lamp is Called a Phantom Flower, produced in Germany back in the 1970's. The manufactures label is stamped 69, I don't know if that's the year of production or release. This lamp has always been hard to research given they are so rare. We've only seen three others sell in the UK and the last one I saw for sale, sold for £480 on Etsy. Scroll down for info. …Continue
The title says it all! If anyone has a 32 oz globe with or without the contents, please let me know. I broke the top of one of my favorite lamps by idiot accident and am now searching for a new globe… Continue
I saw a post on here from a few months ago where someone was able to successfully remove the coating on their Neo, but for some reason I'm unable to see the replies describing how to actually do it. Unfortunately, my Neo's film came with a few ugly bubbles in it, and just generally makes the bottle less clear. If anyone has any advice on how to remove it, or knows how to find the replies to that old post, I would very much appreciate the help. Thanks!Continue
Not really sure what's going on with this. I've tried a few coils and they all do this- the wax just sits on top of them. It doesn't break the surface tension of the wax and I'm guessing it's not heating it up as well because of this. Any ideas on what's happening and what I can do? …Continue
I was wondering if anyone had tried removing this coating. I've read that it scratches quite easily so I was wondering about having a go with a glass scraper, or does anyone know of any chemicals that would strip it?I have one bottle that seems to have a particularly thick coating and it's bugging me!I've been pondering asking mathmos if they'll add an option of non-coated bottles for those of us who don't use them as kids lighting and don't care about the shatterproof properties...Continue
MAKE ME A REASONABLE OFFER, This is the story from another previous owner of an identical Kenny prototype lamp:"The Kenny has an interesting background. In 1995 I was the GM for ICON Ceramics which was the largest manufacturer of ceramic bong bases in the world. In 1996, we got a contract to produce 10,000 lava lamp bases for world. In 1996, we got a contract to produce 10,000 lava lamp bases for Haggerty enterprises. We retooled our molds to produce our pieces in a way that would accomodate…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
