sounds like the water has a higher density than the wax. dump (but keep just in case) some of the lamp water and replace with distilled until the liquid wax begins to rise and fall.
i can't recommend one way over the other, but it just seems easier to change the density of the water. as for how much distilled water to add - i'm guessing it may be between 2 - 3 cups based on your previous photo. i'd start small and go from there, making sure to save whatever lamp water you remove in case you need to increase the density of the water.
Thanks for the reply Brad. So you would recommend the distiller water over weighting down the wax (as previously suggested by another)? Does anything need to be mixed with the distiller water? How much does or take to start changing flow patterns? I know this will be experimentational so you can't really answer that, but are thinking a few drops? A cup or two? Just not sure how potent the distiller water is. Thanks.
did you check the production dates on the caps before you mixed them? Also my goo kits can do that but then it eventually sinks (sometimes takes up to a hour) I say let it keep running for a day or 2 days straight dont turn it off. See what happens before you mess with the water.
i agree to try running it for a few days just to be sure. be sure to cover the top of the globe to reduce evaporation.
