"UPDATE :: After my initial semi-success I can't say the artist oil paint is a viable method.   I only had 1 color that worked (or at least appeared to work) actually it kind of coated some of the wax and never really blended with it. …"

"New here, but I bought a used China lamp that had orangy yellow wax, looked awful.  I added some white oil paint and now it looks like real cream.  Don't know if it will last, but looks way better.  Also don't know if I did…"

ATB replied to Kyle's discussion Clear goo?
"I'm confused. Are you guys saying that overheating the goo makes it turn opaque? I've only heated goo in the microwave (not too long) and I've never been able to get goo to turn opaque even after many runs in the lamp. It's…"

"Hey Brad, whatever happened to this lamp? Did the lava turn opaque? Also, I see that you have a Mathmos blue/blue. I want to try to replicate that in a grande with a GooKit... Any tips? I'm new to GooKits."
