Oops, my first custom remix from mid 90's globes.
Looks like I need to add some DI to reduce the buoyancy.
Can you say "pepto bismol"
Do not add anything else than pure water.
I had this problem once and I fixed it with water, and I help another member with the same problem, same solution, same result: fixed.
get it to flow upside down - now that would be super cool
Did you make the water up first then add the wax. What I would have done was add the wax, let it harden then add the water and then add things such as slat, PG etc to change the density.
Just remove some of your liquid (2/10) and add distiled water, it should work.
Of course trial and error works, too!
Todd - get a hydrometer to measure the specific gravity of your liquids. Here's one on Amazon that will work fine http://www.amazon.com/Monster-Brew-Home-Brewing-Supplies/dp/B000E60... .
As long as the liquid from one lamp has the same specific gravity of another lamp, no adjustment will be necessary.
For this one, if you have the old liquid still, you could measure its specific gravity, and then you'd know exactly what the new liquid needs to be to get the pink wax simpatico with this new liquid. Does it make sense?
erlenmeyer flasks. i like where this is going.
yikes ! lol
It started out as a clear liquid, pink wax. Poured off the liquid cold and added
the blue liquid from another lamp that was cold. They were from the late 90's.
I'll wait for the pink wax to get cold, push it out of the way and drain off some
water and add some DI to drop the buoyancy and try again...
