Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I did a lot of combing the forums looking, and most I found suggested buying from Magma Tower, but as of June 26th 2019 I don't see any of the color names that people used to suggest years back. Fluorescent Blue, etc.

Are all their dyes fluorescent by default? That'd be lucky, but I just see primary colors listed without any mention of being UV reactive. 

I really would like to mod/build my own lamp with UV dyed wax, and I wanna experiment with a bunch of neat ideas I've had.

Cheers

It is still there

Click the white icon in the center

It looks white until you hit it with blacklight

Be careful is you add any aftermarket fluorescent paint/dye to the water.

It tends to expand more than water and will  explode the lamp

Oh wow thank you :o

Is it advisable to mix that in with another dye too? TY For the quick reply

No the blacklight dye in itself looks fine.

He is a pic of it by itself in sunlight

I found that adding a fluorescent liquid dye was not necessary

 That's so cool! I love it! :o

Ok last question. What's the best way to avoid explosion? The methods I've read say to have the thing heated up and running, then to recap it as it's cooling. 

Thank you so much for your input!!! :O

This is going to be my first DIY and I don't wanna mess it up  because I'm poor lol 

Jury is out on that.

I capped cold and hot.

I experienced no difference. 

Some say hot.

Makes sense because it will created vacuum when it cools, but with grandes, you risk sucking in the stopper

I'm about to seal a couple grandes as soon as the caps come in the mail, I'm going to be using those aftermarket yellow ones, do you think that one of those would still be a risk in terms of sucking it in?  I'll probably give it a try hot anyway, and then add epoxy to the metal cap once it's cool if the rubber cap isn't sucked in.

Sucking in?

Absolutely not

They are not as flexible as the rubber ones

Thanks so much, that's all I need to know!

Where do you get a replacement stopper for the Grande?
