If you want to refill a lamp with glitter, you can buy our GlitterKit in our shop:

Believe it or not, glitter lamps are harder to make formula wise that lava lamps. I have bought some glitter stuff from kirk and also buy 5 below glitter lamps and just pour that into lamps as well.

ive tried many times to get a home made glitter mix and just doesnt work, i bought several refills from marcel - goolamp and very happy with em :-) just placed another order

  1. If i had to buy refills id rather just go to spencers and spend 24$ and buy a 52oz lamp and swap it over..  its cheaper then that kit by ALOT  Was just seeing if anyone knew how to make it yourself.  Why do people buy these expensive kits when the liquid and wax and a free lamp and base and bulb are cheaper at spencers in the mall..  I dont get that...  A 52oz glitter lamp is 25$ and that 1500ml.. Your 1500ml kit is 39 euros which is like 46$...  Sorry for calling out in this but yea.   

Because its crappy fluid that stops flowing and gets cloudy within a few months

Maybe Lavalite's glitter quality is better now, but a few years ago the glitters were hit or miss just like the lava.  These kits definitely fill a need, especially with custom colors and/or custom glitter.  Stuff you just can't get.  Some of these custom glitters are made to replicate old style glitter from decades ago to keep the original look.
