Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi all! It's been a while since I've posted anything. I'm still struggling with my homemade lava lamp concept, mainly the light socket and lamp base. I'm not sure what size or material would fit my project best. The globe is going to be an 800ml Voss water bottle, which has a diameter of 2.75 inches. I also can't decide what to use as a base, and how to keep the socket in place once it's in the base.

In other words, I have no idea what I'm doing and would appreciate any suggestions and advice. Thank you! :)

Several China knockoff lamps might have the right diameter you require

If not, cut tabs into the edge of a standard lava lamp base and bend up to hold the bottle, 

Cover the tabs with tape of=r hose clamp

Thank you! :) I'll look into those and see if they have any with a cylindrical shape. Ideally I'd like the base to look like it's part of the bottle, if that makes sense.

I have actually used small coffee cans and  christmas cookie tins in the past

Go to local resale with an open mind and you will be surprised at what can be repurposed

also, those "Can" track lights can be used if set upside down
