My First Lava Lamp was:
I purchased a cheap one in a brazilian web page where the people offer all kinds of stuffs to sell. I choose one model with clear liquid and blue lava. After wait anxiously for some days, the lamp arrived and when I opened the box I had a big deception: the clear liquid was clouded! Besides the seller offered to return my money, I decide stay with the lamp to make some experiments with it intending make my own lava lamp.
