I am in the process of experimenting with different waxes and additives, trying to find the perfect formulation to make my own goo for lava lamps.  I know I could buy formulated goo kits, but I like melting wax, coloring it, and making them on my…Continue

Best Wax to use?

Started Apr 12 0 Replies

I recently tried using Gulf Wax, the wax sold as a canning sealer.  I picked some up at my local supermarket.  It is supposed to be "highly refined" paraffin.  I like it a little better than the Artminds wax I was buying at Michaels and it seems a…Continue

Strange clingy food coloring

I stopped at Hobby Lobby the other day and bought some white food coloring.  I thought I would try a lamp with white water and black lava.  I don't think I have ever seen that combo before, so I made the lamp. When the lamp starts to flow, the lava…Continue

Worth it for the globe, base and coil

$9.  That is a deal.  Definitely worth $9 just for the globe, coil, and base.  They are building one of these stores in my area.  I will be buying quite a few of these, if they continue selling them for such a cheap price.…Continue

A Sad Spencers Display And A Great Spencers Experience, within 20 miles of each other

I was out of town on business this afternoon and passed two malls that I haven't visited in years.  I decided to stop in and see what lava lamps the two Spencer Gifts had in stock.   In Canton, Ohio, Belden Village Mall had this pathetic display,…Continue

Trying to find a better goo formulation

I am in the process of experimenting with different waxes and additives, trying to find the perfect formulation to make my own goo for lava lamps.  I know I could buy formulated goo kits, but I like melting wax, coloring it, and making them on my own.  The "usual" way of paraffin and brakleen works ok for me, but about 30% of my lamps do not last more than a few weeks, before the wax starts separating and/or sticking to the sides.  Other lamps I made in January are still flowing perfectly.  I…See More
