"Jumping in hear, what I would do would be to keep adding the fog fluid and DI water to it but making sure it keeps the dome so a bit at a time but you may not need to keep it to a 50 / 50 ratio depends on how it reacts. "

"Ok.  I have half a cup in of fog fluid and the bottle half filled with water.  Got a dome with one small chunk going to the top.  Do I keep adding a half a cup each to fill it or...?"

"Yes i did. I let it all turn to liquid with no water let ut harden, filled the water half way and warmed it up again. And now some chunks are floating in the solid state"

"Did you melt all of the wax back together and let it cool before you added the water this time?"

"so I have the bottle half filled with water....most of the wax stayed on the bottom but some rose up.  I need to empty the water and refill, correct?"

"Hate to chime in here in the middle but based on what your lamp looks like right now I would (1) Wait for everything to cool down, (2) dump the fluid, and (3) leave the wax and coil in the lamp. (4) fill 25% with some distilled water with a couple…"

Need new oil

Posted on October 1, 2016 at 2:58am 8 Comments

So my brother was by a couple weeks ago and knocked over my 1975 lamp. The cap (which was already damaged) broke and all the oil spilled out on my carpet. The wax is still in there and very little oil remains. The oil is up to the wide part of the globe . I was wondering if anyone knows what i can use to fill it up again. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
