    Hi everyone...I have a Lava Amoeba model 7265 and I misplaced the power cord. Does anyone know what a good replacement for it would be? It says nothing on the lamp itself on what it takes. Thanks so much!Continue

    Cleaning Exterior Globe - Painful Resude!

    Started by Sentrex in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Sentrex yesterday. 2 Replies

    Over the years I have had plenty of globes that I have scrubbed the crap out of with scotch brite sponges, hot water, and soap but cannot get the smudgy residue off of them, especially near the base. After scrubbing I can still "smear" the residue with my finger.Recently I bought a ceramic that was most definitely from a smokers house, getting the smoke smell out of the base was tough, but the globe has been mostly unsuccessful in removing the residue. So one of my theories is that this residue…Continue

    Best way to get my lava out of the globe

    Started by Peter Piper in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Sentrex on Friday. 1 Reply

    actually I have a couple globes I need advice on.  The first one is an experiment that I tried adding glitter fluid to a lava lamp.  The lava went to the top and I haven't touched it until now. I tried to push the lava down with my finger, but it is softer than I anticipated.  My plan is to take the lava out and add the little bit of left over glitter fluid and just have a glitter lamp. right now the glitter flows nice, but only below the stuck lava.…Continue

    Epsom Salts = Bubbly Wax

    Started by Rafael Benedicto in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Rafael Benedicto on Thursday. 3 Replies

    I've recently re-filled a 2-year-old Astro with new water, following precise instructions on how to get it done. I've been happy with the results during the first two days. But on the 3rd day the wax just stopped moving and stayed on the bottom forming a balloon-like shape that just won't rise, even when it's been turned on for 6 hours. So I figured the water wasn't heavy enough, therefore I need to make it more dense by adding epsom salts into the water. So I dissolved some epsom salts in a…Continue

    This is my first try at sun fading a lamp, I couldn't believe how fast the blue faded. just took about four hours in the sun. The bottle was a white/blue bottle from 1994 that I had found at my local thrift store. You can't tell from the photo,…


    All that Glitters is Gold

    Posted by Peter Piper on September 13, 2018 at 10:41pm 2 Comments

    Seems to me like the popular gold bases with the holes should of been glittered.  It didn't take long to paint, partlly because the Rust-Oleum spray nozzle stopped working after half the can maybe less.  But it was good enough and looked great…
