Adding colour to Jet lamp

Hi All,I've got a Mathmos Jet lamp that has lost the violet colour from its liquid. What's the best way of restoring it? The bottle has a screw cap so it shouldn't be a problem to open.CheersDazContinue

"Get yourself a colour inkjet refill kit, used for refilling printer cartridges. The ink is water based, and usually very fade resistant. You don't need a lot, just a few drops of cyan and magenta to produce a nice violet like the original. "

"Yes, food colouring works.  However it may or may not last long term.  I have ran into fading problems with it.  That being said, if it does fade again it can be redone without any harm."

"Cheers Keith. I'll just have to find a violet highlighter. It should be a little easier for me as the bottle in my jet has a screw cap."
