Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

The New White Wax/ Black Liquid At Lava Lite...

I haven't seen it mentioned here so I have to ask: Has anyone seen this lamp on their site? It looks so cool and I really want it. It's the lousy 14.5" though so I'd be tempted to get two and just make a 52.

Any idea on how this color combo would actually look irl?

If anyone has one is it the typical cloudy mess?

Thanks.

there are a few pictures of it here on the site if you look around a bit

im curious about this one as well. looks like a neat color combo.

I'm curious, but I not curious enough to buy. ;) I don't think anyone has one yet. 

I couldn't resist the white/black combo so I picked one up. :)  I don't care for the Batman base and will probably switch it with another.

I'm not a lava expert, but I'd say for a china lamp and for its size the flow is decent.  The lava still seems to like to form balls, but it might be a tad more active than my other china lamps. With the liquid being black, it is hard to tell if it is cloudy.   The lava is a little less opaque than my white/blue 90's Midnight.  Lava that is close to the bulb is nice and bright white and makes a great contrast to the black liquid.  Towards the top, the lava is a little less illuminated and a little greyish. 

Overall I'm happy with it knowing it's a China made lamp.  I'll try to post some pics and maybe even a video.

PICS! Must see pics and video!

I see there's a pic in this thread.

The globe is covered in a tint so thats why it looks a little greyish when away from the light and more white when closer to the bulb. If you were to dump the contents of the bottle, the fluid would be totally clear with white wax. And the smaller the globes are, the more likely the lava will form just balls when flowing. It has all to do with the amount of wax in the bottle. The more wax there is, the more likely it'll be long stretchy blobs like you see in grandes etc.

Are you sure the glass is tinted?

what else would it be? its not black water that's for sure. And I dont know if you've ever owned a rainbow globe when those were around, but that's exactly how those were made. The globe was covered/dipped in tint colored film, that if you wanted to, you could scrap it off with your fingernail. I had one a while ago that I swapped out the original formula (which was cloudy fluid/white wax)  and replaced with silver glitter formula.

Actually, the fluid could be a very dark gray, I have a grande with what I think myst be wax leakage that happens to have gray water, looks really cool when it is flowing too.

Thanks for all the info. I'm turned off by it being just a dark tint on the glass.

why dont you ask Dale what it is?
