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.

The fast glitter liquid is solvent-based and should be treated with caution. Use safety goggles and gloves when working with the liquid, and make sure your work area is well ventilated — turn on a fan.
Use a funnel when pouring the liquid into your globes. Promptly close your bottle openings with the plug and cap provided.

What size light bulb would I get for one of those 52 oz Aristocrat base fast glider.
^^ Perfect selection, I really like that size glitter. I have been pestering kirk about sizes for a bit. Can we assume fast speed? Did you put a video yet?
Yes, stock French fast glitter fluid, topped up with a little of Kirk's magic fluid.
A 25w bulb, and original blue, red and green stripes on the underneath of the bottle which is fully loaded with glitter flakes (although it's only a teaspoon's worth).
And very rewarding as it looked so ineffective when I purchased it, covered in grime, with low fluid, and translucent flakes.
Will try and video at some point.
I look forward to the video!!
And here is a Crestworth Sapphire Telstar, with original Glitterlite fluid, and Kirk's glitterlite flakes (the pictures don't do it justice unfortunately).
Also worth noting is the fact that the fluid in this one was about quarter of an inch low. I took a gamble and topped with water (test mixed a minute amount first), and it mixed perfectly well
^^ Superb is all I can say!!!
Excellent, is that as big as I think it is or just an illusion? Looks 3 to 4 ft tall.
No, not quite that high. 16"
Real nice lamp though!!! Has a kind of art deco look to me.
