#27 lava lamp - lava and spring a mangle mess

So this weekend flea market find is a complete #27 lava lamp. The base has the blue lava lamp logo. Base and cape is silver.

See below photos, how do I fix this? Is it fixable? Will some heat or just leaving the lamp on help get all back to normal. Sorry the photos are not that great.

I have no plans on emptying contents and redoing so I hope some simple heat and time will get the lava and spring back to normal.

The spring looks to be intact, Lava looks clean, fluid looks clear.

Fire up that big boy and let it mellow in all of it's gooey goodness, I'd say it has a good chance of flowing fine.

Wow, I can't believe it, I put on the lamp right after the post and said, what the hell what can it hurt, and it's already corrected itself fully to the point that the lava is flowing great and spring is back at the bottom.

Was quite surprised and thought it wouldn't work right.

I will take some video tomorrow evening.

Also, red wax, blue liquid, very hard to see the wax, not cause of cloudiness (there is none) but I guess due to the color combo.

Maybe when the lamp is near my others with a white wall behind it, will be able to see better :)

As always keith, thanks for chiming in, now, why haven't you chimed in my glitter grande thread?? Or did you?

Good call on using a white backdrop, it will help.  Backlighting will help also.  Purple/blue is about the worst for that, but any dark wax in a colored fluid can be problematic.

Or did I ;)
