I removed my first two quality control posts and combined them into this one.  I really wanted to give the company a chance, as they kept sending replacements for their defective, poorly made products.   I recently contacted Schylling again after…Continue

My latest creation,  10 drops of "Turquoise Waters" liquid wax dye.  I really like the brand, Artminds.  I use their paraffin exclusively and many of their dyes.  This Turquoise Waters is one of my favorites. The pic doesn't show it, but the goo is…Continue

Strange clingy food coloring

Started this discussion. Last reply by Metallica Man Trevor Mar 6. 16 Replies

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

Started this discussion. Last reply by BaBa-Gooey Mar 2. 3 Replies

$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

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

I have had 4 bulbs since I started my collection 4 months ago blow out and look like this.  They are all schylling lamps.  Others have blown out and look normal.What causes them to blow and look like this?  It is not just one base.I…Continue

Two New Lamps - Goo made from scratch

Started this discussion. Last reply by k-nano Feb 19. 5 Replies

Still perfecting and fine tuning.  Here is my latest red lava with blue water, made yesterday.  I am experimenting with different wattages and lumens of light bulbs and how they change the flow.  How much heat do increases in lumens provide, when…Continue

"I actually have seen the long column flow your describing. I have done it with the ferrofluid. However, that particular formulation doesn't hold up well in shipping. If I do more R&D I may be able to fix that.  Are you saying that…"

"Hey, Yep. I know how they work and flow and they’re nice lamps but to me the flow is not the same as hot wax.  However, current wax lamps don’t flow like they used to either.  Also, are there large size ferro fluid lamps…"

"My ferrofluid lava lamps do flow on their own like lava lamps. They are literally ferrowax lamps. They behave just like a lava lamp except the "lava" is also highly magnetic."
