After extensive testing, I'm now offering many NEW glitter colors in clear fast liquid. They are gorgeous! Here are a few of the options. I'll post them all below in this discussion and in my videos.
I've also developed replacement slow glitter formulas for the Florence Art, Heat Tapes, Mastercrafters, and Crestworth glitter lamps of the 60s and 70s. The liquid in these formulas is non-flammable, non-combustible, and much less toxic than the fast, solvent-based liquid.
To simplify things, both fast and slow glitter liquid are now available at the same prices. Here are some FAQs on the glitter liquid.
I fill all orders on a first come, first served basis. I do all of the work by hand and take care to ensure quality. Please allow 2-3 weeks from payment for delivery.

Kirk, have sent you an email! Andy
I'm back! It looks like I've got a back log of requests. I'm in the process of responding to emails. I'll get to everyone as soon as possible.
One thing to report: the yellow and pink dyes are not currently available. I'm currently testing them for stability.
Great you're back, buddy!!! Got your orange glitter globe on my Pumpkin Icon and the green globe with long strand gold glitter on the Alien Icon for Halloween. They look very nice as does the "Snowstorm Grande" runnin in the background!!
Hi! Im new here, and in need of liquid and glitter for my dads old glitter lamp (a continental Im told) it used to have square silver glitter that is long disintegrated and the old (im sure very dangerous) liquid had evaporated. So I've got a working empty amp sitting on a 15 watt bulb. It holds about 800ML of liquid. Can anyone help me return it to its former glory?
I'd be happy to help you bring your Continental back to it's former glory. I have a Gemlite Continental, and I love it!
Is the mylar red/green/blue/yellow still attached and in good condition on the bottom of the bottle?
No, the glitter is kaput, I'm open to replacing it with glitter like the original, or something different. But I definitely want it to be large. As a kid I think it was silver or gold maybe? im open to suggestions, also my top is missing, so gotta figure that out too
I lost count as to the amount of lamps I have from Kirk.
Absolutely stunning work~!
Videos and pictures do not do them justice
Thanks for the kind words, Claude.
I know many of you are wondering when is Kirk going to send me an invoice or get my order filled. Well, it's been a combination of IT projects (my real work) and recreating the Glitterlite formula (hobby).
While the real work has had its challenges and disappoints lately, I'm happy to say that the hobby is very fulfilling. I think I have a very close facsimile of the original Crestworth Glitterlite formula - less those annoying small silver squares.
Here's a photo of the original:
Here is my Glitterlite formula in Amber and Sky Blue - same self-starting, slow flow as the original.
Those look quite superb, Kirk...I thought the Glitterlite formula was lost forever, many congratulations.
After several months of testing, I now have several *NEW* glitter options. They all run in clear, fast liquid.
First up: Gold, Green, Pink, Ocean Blue, and Multicolor.
These are some excellent colors, Kirk!
