    What do these lamp scenarios mean, exactly?

    Hey gang,    so nice to meet you.   I am a Lava Lamp fan in Central Texas,     age 53.   My first lamp was in 1973,   when I was 10. I am new to the art and science of re-furbishing lava lamps.   Just to get me started,    can you tell me what these two scenarios mean,   vis-a-vis the water chemistry:After 2 hrs, Wax melts,  rises to the top,  and stays there,   never to dive again.After 2 hrs, Wax melts,   but stays collected at the bottom of the bottle,  never to rise.I do own some perc,   …Continue

    Double Play lamp

    Started by Ian in Collecting. Last reply by Keith yesterday. 49 Replies

    Lava Lite has finally released their "double play" lamp- a lava core surrounded by glitter. It looks pretty, and its a little larger than the 52oz lamps. It says its a 18.5" lamp, as opposed to the 16.3" that is the 52oz. I really want to see a video, and I want to see the lamp in person, but it costs $109.99!! Is it really worth it?? I wonder if it will be successful at all... I will not purchase for that price, especially without seeing a video first... Here is a link to the page.…Continue

    Color changing lava lamp

    Started by Jeremy Blakesley in Collecting. Last reply by Jeremy Blakesley on Friday. 51 Replies

    Hi all,I just joined the forum.  Wanted to let people know that I am working on a color changing lava lamp.  Mine will be called the Fire Light.  I'm hoping to get it on kickstarter soon.  I have a working prototype running now.  I'm also building custom, heavy duty steel bases for them.  I'm in the process of finding parts suppliers and getting costs for the parts.  Just wanted to see if there was any interest in this.  I am working now on getting 3 or 4 different prototype designs of bases…Continue

    Photography Fair

    Started by VOXul in Off Topic. Last reply by Keith on Thursday. 604 Replies

    So I thought... We have a great music thread, random topic thread and various lava/glitter/fiber/rain/plasma/wave/motion image threads. I think we need one to support general photography, unique images and moving pictures (e.g. gifs and other things that move). Maybe it will be a quiet thread maybe it will get rowdy. I could be talking to myself here! Post images that move you, excite you, make you laugh maybe even cry! Express with imagery!Continue

    Adding color to my 20 year old Lava Lamps

    Started by Michael in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Jeff Neely on Wednesday. 7 Replies

    Hi guys,I have two 32 oz lava lamps that have been running 8-12 hours a day for over 20 years. They still flow great, but their age is starting to show: they need a bit more water, and the wax is slowly losing it's color year by year.I would like to re-color the wax, without buying a goo-kit (the $47 international shipping cost on a $29 kit is ridiculous) (I'm in Canada).Can anyone tell me about this process of coloring the wax? How do you do it? How do you make the color mix with the wax,…Continue

    Help finding stuff for my lamp

    Posted by Dave Daughtrey on November 30, 2015 at 11:59am 14 Comments

    I have a 1975 model Lava lamp that no longer works. It lights up but the goo doesn't blob and rise like it should. It is a 1975 model 300 Carlisle. the only thing different is the spring in the bottom is broken.
