    super bright 2.5 volt, 0.25 watt christmas tree lamp super bright

    Started by The Lamp Caretaker in Collecting 23 minutes ago. 0 Replies

    I'm hoping someone here may be able to assist me in locating what I come to find as the hardest bulb I've ever tried to purchase online.  My Christmas tree is in desperate need of - SUPER BRIGHT / 2.5 volt, 0.25 watt light bulbs.  I've tried well over thirty bulbs I have here in my home and all are dim when plugged in and manufacturers instructions are to purchase the 2.5 volt - 0.25 watt - super bright clear light bulbs.  I cannot seem to locate anywhere online...what am I missing here?  I…Continue

    Coming next year: The Lava Lair YouTube Channel.

    Started by Mattgyver92 in General Goo on Saturday. 0 Replies

    I'm making a YouTube channel for all my projects and build voicovers. Mostly my custom designed concrete lava lamps (all open source), but also anything else that would befit a supervillian lair. Supersized board games, mid-century designs for lighting and furniture, 3D printing / laser cutting projects, and more weird lava stuff. You'll likely also see my two cats (Siegfried & Roy) often.Current schedule is to launch before the end of next year with a few build videos. I will still be…Continue

    Looking for a source of glitter

    Started by Adrian in Buy/Sell/Trade Zone. Last reply by Mark Golebiowski on Saturday. 4 Replies

    Hello, I am looking for a source of glitter, preferably 10*10 mm silver squares. It needs to be resistant to a calcium nitrate solution or maybe even also perchloroethylene.Holographic would also be nice, even though I think I have some 5mm tinsel curtain that actually works. My 10*10 mylar confetti seems to look worse after getting into my nitrate solution, but not eaten away yet (it's been a few weeks). It's also maybe a little too transparent.I'm based in Denmark, EU.Continue

    A really rare sight

    I’ve never seen a Crestworth lamp box (Astro Mini) of any kind on tv before and may never see one again so I’m glad I took a snap of one recently seen on tv here in the U.K. The program was about an auction house set up in Yorkshire northern England. They do house clearances and auctions.Continue

    2nd Nov new lamp launch

    Started by Noz in Collecting. Last reply by Paul on Thursday. 152 Replies

    A completely new lamp is being launched on the 2nd Nov. Can't link the picture sorry. Won't let me.But looks die cast, and possibly looking at the curvature it might be taking an astro bottle. And first 100 out the window. Now a lottery of all the orders placed on the same day. Seems irrelevant to still call it first 100 when it isn't. What are your thoughts on what it might be? Continue

    I finally snagged a #21

    Started by MacRanium in Collecting. Last reply by MacRanium on Wednesday. 3 Replies

    I stumbled across one of my bucket list globes on Facebook marketplace a #21 red wax purple liquid silver streak edition. Got it for an amazing price from a nice old hippy lady in the older part of town. The spring is broken and sticks up a bit but it flows fine and the wax shrouds the spring so when it's fully flowing you don't see it, I plan on fixing it this weekend but otherwise super happy to have this color combo it's one of my favorites Continue

    Bubble clock

    Started by Jsmooth in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Jsmooth on Wednesday. 2 Replies

    Hello again lava lovers,Please see the attached video for an example of the problem I am having. I have the same problem with a couple of lamps and wondered if maybe this is a sign of a bad coil? A single bubble shoots up out of nowhere and sticks at the top with some of the wax that comes with it. You could time the bubble coming up from the bottom- it’s fairly frequent. Almost like a hiccup or something. Do you suppose it’s a coil that has a tiny area that the wax has not taken a liking…Continue

    Do you have experience with liquid wax dye?

    Started by Mark Golebiowski in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Kyle S Nov 29. 1 Reply

    I want to change the color of the wax in my grande lamp. I have liquid wax dye. Since the dye is an oil, I am afraid if I add a lot of dye to make a rich or a dark color, it will thin out the wax and make it too “oily” and disrupt the balance between water and wax. Have you tried liquid wax dye? What was your experience?Continue

    It's tragic, I first made a profile here forever ago, intending to dive right into the lava community after falling in love with my new neon pink Heritage Grande. Unfortunately, that lamp stopped flowing completely not long after I got it... I…
