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
probably paid too much for this little buddy but I LOVE IT IT IS SO CUTE OMGthe glitter is SO china - moves around fairly slowly, not quick like my wizard but i still adore it and with my wizard's cap, it's like a little baby wizard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Continue
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
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
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
Hi GooheadsI have a few lamps I haven't displayed in ages (I'm really fussy about I arrange my lamps, and some just clash with the others/the room's decor.) I'm saving for oral surgery so ready to sell just about everything I own (everything except the Mathmos lamps! :P)So, all the lamps in the attached pictures are for sale.$70 for Fantasia fiber optic$50 each for the gold Starlite and Black/Clear lamp$15 each for the Lava Brand 16"s (blue/purple)$10 each for everything else...Or just make me…Continue
After a long time, I finally found blue and green dyes that are stable! Here are the new blue and green colors that are now most definitely stable in both the slow and fast liquid. They are gorgeous!My obsession with glitter lamps has reached new heights, folks. As many of you know, I’ve been experimenting and trying to…Continue
I don't know what it is about the winter months that make me want to buy more lava lamps, but today I found myself ordering a 50th Anniversary model from Spencer Gifts. I wanted to see what you all think of this model and if any of you have any direct experience with it:…Continue
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
It's been awhile, but I really could use all the expert opinions that are available here.....Would anyone care to answer a few for me?
First a little back story...
I purchased this Christmas 2015 a Lava Grande from Amazon, in a…Continue
I have an all original 1975 Model lamp, I have been messing with the coil and have lost a little liquid out of it. I need to add a couple of ounces but I am not sure what I can add that wont hurt it. I was told mine has different chemicals than…Continue
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.
