Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Has anyone ever tried making a lava lamp out of a glass soda bottle?

I have this really cool idea for a lava lamp but I'm unsure if it would work because I would want to use a glass soda bottle for the design.

Theoretically any glass vessel can be used. 

If you browse lava lamps on ebay, sometimes you can come across lamps made from vodka and whisky bottles. So yes a soda bottle should work, but it's all about getting a right sized coil, and the right density of wax and masterfluid and for that I am well out of my depth.

If you are transferring contents from a lava bottle to your soda bottle you should be okay. One further thing, make sure that your glass soda bottle has a nice thick base. And finally the very best of luck with your project. If successful, lets have a photo of it. 

I am using a wine bottle.
