Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I've currently added the goo to two lamps. In the first lamp the goo came out a killer white and the second lamp the goo came out crystal clear which I also loved. So I was holding off on the dye step.

When I turned them on today the crystal clear one is no longer clear and it's pretty bubbly. I did everything the same. 

I know some people say to boil it and some say to leave it on 10 hours and turn it off for 10 repeat... But is this really going to fix itself?

I have little idea. I just bought a goo kit and made 3 - two turned out pretty transparent and one (the smallest one) was opaque. I have a feeling it's a very subtle difference in surfactant ratios.


Thanks Stephanie. They are both white now which looks good but I'm kinda bummed the clear one turned. I talked to magma tower because there was an issue with my order and he said it was because of heat more than likely. As long as it doesn't affect the dye process when I take that leap then it's all good. I'm nervous about messing that part up somehow.

hmmm... heat from the lamp itself? I don't know if the two transparent ones have frosted bulbs in them but i'm fairly sure they do. I also have ran them several times already. I know the opaque one has a clear, but its also a tiny Mediterranean. maybe i'll email them.
 
my dyeing went fine, but it does end up looking different between the opacities. I just reorganized my entire collection and plan on posting some pictures soon

They are both 52oz lamps and both opaque.

Also the order was pretty melted. All my dye packs pretty much melted out and the goo had melted but not out of the bottle. He speculated that might have something to do with it. He also could have just blowed smoke up my butt too because he had no idea. Lol
