I have a modern 17"/32oz. lamp I really like. It is clear liquid with red wax. Back in 2014/2015 when I bought it the first one didn't really flow at all. I complained to Lava and the sent me a 52oz lamp as a replacement since the metallic red one I had was no longer available. Then I found another red metallic at a local store and bought it. The 2nd one flows just great but needs a dimmer to keep the goo off the roof.
Anyway, I took the bad one and made a homemade glitter lamp out of it. BUT I saved the wax out of it. I had saved the fluid, but the jug leaked at some point so I threw the rest out. Anyway, the only complaint I have of the 32oz metallic red gem is that it seem to have too little goo inside. I was wondering if I could augment the wax volume with some of the wax from the original lamp.
Would it be a bad idea to increase the wax volume in a working lamp? I wouldn't go crazy, maybe just put about 1/4 of the saved wax in the lamp.
I do not follow the ML guidelines from Lava Lamp corp./
I fil to the bottom line where the base ends
It takes a tad longer to heat up but flows better with more blobs
