I need advice from the experts in this field. I have a 750ML (approx 24 ounces) glass crystal head. I want to make my very first custom lamp. I didn't put this in a specific group only because I wanted to get as much input on this as I can. I posted several pics to illistrate my questions. for starters I am not sure how to secure the top. The cork is wood topped with like a high quality foam to seal the glass. I am afraid this will melt.. Not sure on an alternative solution. I am iffy on the base, should I go standard, or go completely scratch on this whole thing. but right now my main concern is the seal on top. I am sure someone has done this allready, but I want to give it a go also. any input would be great.
As far as color still on the fence, I was thinking florescent green or blue with a black light in backround and either a blue bulb or red bulb underneath., to make the crystal glow and the wax emphasizing inside the skull.
as for the base, I want to go black, but not sure on its form. should I go witht he can idea from other peeps or..
So what you all think of this project?
Here are some pics when it was lava. I had 2 small coils in it that sat side by side and all that did was make it form one blob that just stayed in the 'hoola" state. No small blobs rising up one after another just a very inactive globe. I'll take pics of the glitter this weekend. But what I did with the cap was wrapped the rubber part in tinfoil then wrapped it with plastic like from a freezer zip-lock. Then I used silicone sealant to seal it. I dont know how the plastic would react to the LL glitter or how it would react to the tinfoil. Tinfoil is pretty thin and can get brittle Do you still that that red stopper that came with the LL glitter globe? maybe that will work?
