What tha stuck!?

So, I have a lamp that I replaced the master fluid in, I’ve used 70% h20 and 30%P.G. I coated the globe with a good 50/50 mix of SLS, poured that out, dropped the coil in, and funneled the warm wax…Continue

Hello,I’ve changed the master fluid on one of my lamps and have found that while balancing the density, the master fluid clouds up once things get flowing like they should. I’ve seen small bubbles…Continue

So I have an odd problem- a bubble comes up from the bottom center of my globe every 10 seconds (yes, I’ve timed it). Otherwise, the lamp flows well. What do you guys suppose is causing this???Continue

I have this early century and unfortunately, the original wax was too far gone to save it and I am an experimental sort of person. I went ahead and made my own goo after spending hours and hours…Continue

Yeah.

"It’s a hard one to photograph, the lava is like a mint green but it sometimes looks cream. It’s sort of translucent too which is strange because before I changed the fluid, it was deep green and almost flaky or speckled. Maybe that was…"

Yeah.

"The flow is spectacular, and if I bought a Century (assuming it was a fairly basic one) and got this uncommon Aristocrat-- and further, replaced the fluid and got this stunning faded green/blue with the cream lava, now looking more like an also…"

"I’ve coated the globe with this. I’ve tried using it as is and diluting it 50/50. I think you’re right, I should just use an acetone and strip the globe’s interior and start again. "

So, I have a lamp that I replaced the master fluid in, I’ve used 70% h20 and 30%P.G. I coated the globe with a good 50/50 mix of SLS, poured that out, dropped the coil in, and funneled the warm wax into the globe as per usual. It looked nice and clean and ready to be awesome. I let the wax cool completely at the bottom and then funneled my h20/P.G. Mix in and the wax is sticking to the sides as if I hadn’t used anything to coat the globe. Also the wax seems reluctant to move upwards but when it…See More

New (old) Aristocrat

Posted on March 21, 2022 at 4:07pm 2 Comments

Hey you wonderful goo-loving sweeties! I just scored my first aristocrat off of ebay and am wondering if you could help me figure out a couple of things about it.

1. Is the base rare? It seems to have a more stretched out appearance compared to other aristocrats that I've seen on the web.

2. The master fluid is really clear when it's cold and then as it warms up, it gets pretty cloudy. I've only ran this lamp about four times since I got it out of the shipping…
