Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I picked up this lamp on a whim this past Friday and was hiding it in my car.  I think my husband thinks I’m beyond help at this points. I paid $40, and am assuming this is also an Excalibur based on my last post.  I have not picked up the other lava Excalibur yet as seller was out of town.  I have it next to my 16.3 lamp.  My son says this looks like a giant lipstick.  Any info on this and is going rate around $100?  I feel like the glitter looks faded and would look great redone but I don’t know if i am up for the challenge.  Maybe in a few years!

Photo links not loading fully but the top looks like it is an Excalibur.  

You got a great deal

even if the glitter fluid is shot

I can help you with coaching you with the process or doing it for you

Excalibers can be a bit tricky to reseal

Very similar to a grande

There are various supplier of glitter or you can convert to Lava an have a matched set

Thanks Claude!  It kinda grew on me the few hours I’ve had it on.  My husband came home and even remarked how he much he likes it.  I would certainly appreciate the help one of these days when I can redo lamps like you!

Thanks Claude!  The resealing is what scares me about the process.  I need to look at the tutorials on the site.  Will let you know if I need help.  

If the excalibur is similar to other later model bottles that have a metal sealing cap with a small rubber plug underneath (I am not referring to modern laval lamp bottle caps), there are really easy to take off and reseal. Grandes are hard and take time but these should be on a much smaller scale. Please take off the decorative plastic top and let's see how it's sealed.

I will get a picture up tomorrow.  My toddler has claimed the lamp and he’s currently asleep.

Here it is 

Can i get a photo looking directly as the bottle from the side, but where the cap is? Based on initial photo, it looks like a metal cap with rubber plug underneath. Just want to see the additional photo.
