Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I stopped at Hobby Lobby the other day and bought some white food coloring.  I thought I would try a lamp with white water and black lava.  I don't think I have ever seen that combo before, so I made the lamp.

When the lamp starts to flow, the lava is black, at least a dark red/purple they call black.  After a few blobs mix, the food coloring appears to start clinging to the goo.  After half an hour, the goo looks like it was dusted with sugar.  I think it looks interesting, but think it is strange how the food coloring will not fully dissolve into the water.  The more it flows, the more dusted it becomes.

The Dark Knight Rises LavaLite Lamp has clear liquid and black wax.  They came in two different styles and two different color combos...One is clear liquid and black wax and the other is clear liquid and white wax.  Available online  now from several sellers.  I purchased the set when they first came out and now they cost twice as much and more. 

When I first started up my Mathmos Telstar it was sitting next to my 80's yellow/blue lava lamp and I got this:

Affectionately, titled "the finger"  guess it did not like being next to the lava lite?  Go figure!

I like having 5 or 6 balls of gold ball sized goo.  Once the dimmer is perfectly adjusted, they flow really well.  A new ball rises to the top and displaces a few, causing them to drop.  

My measurements making my own goo and formulating my lamps are anything but precise.  I just slop s**t together while working in my photo and recording studio and cranking up loud progressive rock/metal.  The new Dream Theater record, Distance Over Time, is my current lava making soundtrack.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0o2B8jPyfm0 

I did drop a viagra into one of my lamps the other day.  For four hours, it looked like this.

My latest - Clear wax with white coloring.  

I’m pretty sure they did black liquid with white wax as well..  I may still have mine
