So, My birthday was 2/9 and I turned 21. I decided to spend some money on a Grande!
Well, no wonder they are not as hyped up as they should be... They all ship insanely cloudy!... I did some research, and realized that my black/clear combo is quite the bad batch of choices.
Do not Fear! I am a Mister Fix It! My goal is to get this puppy looking so sick that when my friends come over they become lava heads too.
I did research on certain tutorials of what there is to do to "clear" this problem up. I am stoked. I love making things and I'd be very proud of myself if this gigantic lava lamp became what it deserves.
So, I will list some specific tutorials on how to clear up this problem. If you actually would like to give feedback on what you think I should do, then it would be greatly appreciated.
So my friends, here we go:
Epsom Salt/Soap Solution - http://www.moltenmeditation.com/lava.htm
Poor Grammar Solution- http://oozinggoo.ning.com/forum/topics/1566398:Topic:6021?page=1&am...
These are the only ones I found that had a final product that I liked.
Please let me know if you have any other solutions that I may need to look at that I have not found.
If you think I should make different wax please let me know. I am definitely getting rid of the liquid and starting over.
What is the best way to clean the inside of the huge globe? There are boogers stuck to the side. There is also a little bit of white film under the wax near the coil.
So my questions are:
1.Is this completely busted?
2.Should I keep the wax it came with?
3.Which solution combo is the best liquid? (Epsom salt? Surfacant? Brake Oil? Perk?)
4.Which solution of combo is best for wax?
5.What proportion should I use? Grande's are 7.81 times as big as the 32Oz.
Please, anything you have to advise me with would be awesome. Thanks for reading this far.
Now for the pictures and video :)
