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.

I can't wait to see this...
I have been saving back enough glitter bottles to glitter my colossus, but decided to just keep selling them as modded lamps, instead. :) I'm so glad you're doing this! Now I get to see it!
Yes, it needs to be completely dry. A drop or two of moisture won't hurt especially in ten gallons of liquid, but dry it must be. This may take awhile.
It's funny, Loren. I've been looking at my liquid stock, and I'm not sure if I'm going to have enough to fill this bad boy. It'll be close!
And I'm anxious to see it, too! This is a long process that takes patience. Good thing I have tomorrow off!
John, I've used a hanger with paper towels wrapped around it to get those last pesky drops of water. In case you get tired of waiting...
You won't get an argument from me! I'm slowly glittering all of my lamps. But I love the glitter...
Another thought I just had. The Colossus is SO LARGE that I can get my whole damn arm in there to dry it. We many not have to wait until tomorrow after all. Finishing my scotch first, though.
He works better when he has his Scotch. LOL Why can't you use a hairdryer to dry the globe out?
Good reason, but they don't cost much and would save you a lot of anxiety waiting for the drying process to complete. ;-)
