So, I returned the 32oz I bought a week or so ago from walmart (posted about the bubbles) and bought a 52oz model from spencers. I don't think $29.99 is that bad of a price for a model that is a bit larger.Got the clear liquid with neon green wax and has been breaking in so to speak since Monday evening.So much better in terms of size and lava flow. The attached photos don't really do it justice. The liquid is very clear and the lava is very neon green.3 days in and the bubbles in the lava have…Continue
I'm still searching for a good condition #22 USA globe in a 32 ounce size. This is the one with the blue fluid and purple wax. I did have one nailed down recently, but it was lost by FedEx on its way to me.
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
I have been rebuilding lamps for quite a while now. Just opened a new quart of lava from Goo Kits. Rebuilding a accent and a mid size lamp. I believe I have a bad batch of lava. I cannot get this new batch to separate. The more salt or dispersant you add, the lava just makes a ball at the end of a stem from the bottom. The more chemicals, the higher the ball in the globe. Replaced water several times and get the same result.As I said, I have been rebuilding lamps with consistent success using…Continue
I bought a mathmos lava lamp a couple of years and I've hardly used it since but since I've recently turned it back on there's a lot of bits floating around in the wax . Does anyone know how to get rid of them or if its possible?
Ive recently found an old century lamp with what seems to be a vinyl wood-grain pattern on the base. I cant seem to find any info on this style of base, does anyone know anything? What year is it from? Any info would be nice thanks. (didnt see anything in the Lava Library, is that still being updated) Continue
After seeing some of these which had been made into flasks by some cosplayers, I hunted down one of these on eBay. French, 1950s? I know I've seen them with a label on each quadrant for four different liqueurs. Sometimes they have a sticker reading "Fait Main" (hand made). I'm crossing my fingers that it'll fit in an Aristocrat or Century base.It has the four original plastic stoppers. I'd like to fill it with four colors of Kirk's slow glitter-- probably blue, purple, orange, green-- assuming…Continue
Hi all,I bought a Crestworh Galaxy today that at some point in its life has been given a base extension - see pics. I kind of think that it works but a matter of taste I suppose.Anyhow, the lamp has stopped working - I tried the usual suspects such as the plug and fuse but these are all okay. I then opened up the case to discover that the neutral wire has come loose - see pics. I presume that the loose wire has broken the circuit but unsure where I need to connect it. Can anyone help…Continue
First of all, this is not a guide but notes for my self, that hopefully others might find useful. Stuff you find here might already have been described elsewhere on this site.…Continue
