Started this discussion. Last reply by MIKE BEAGEN Apr 10, 2011. 2 Replies

After having bought a defective lava lamp (the story of which is amply detailed in the problems subforum), I decided to try the homebrew approach to Lava Lamp appreciation...I'd keep the globe, base…Continue

12V halogen retrofit

Started Mar 12, 2010 0 Replies

For now, I have a reasonable supply of R39 30W reflector bulbs to keep my 3 (working) lava lamps happy, although they come at a premium and are hard to find.I tried to look for possible alternatives,…Continue

Substitutes for Perc?

Started this discussion. Last reply by TOMMYRAY CHANNELS Dec 19, 2013. 10 Replies

I am interested in learning to make my own ooze, and figured out that the only "right" way is to mix wax with perc in order to obtain a mixture that's denser than water. The other way would be to…Continue

MagicLamp replied to Jennifer's discussion Does salt solution bleach wax over time?
"An advice if you are trying to make "saltless" lamps: doing so causes MUCH MORE wax-wall stickyness, which will only go away if you just happen to dump the exact type and dose of anti-surfactant agents (pen ink seems to work, as does dish…"

MagicLamp replied to krissyfromswindon's discussion worlds worst photographer
"Also you should use a camera with an IR filter in its lens, which most compacts and cell phone cameras do not have, and their sensors pick up IR light (try taking a shot of a remote control's IR led while in use). For lava lamps this often…"

MagicLamp replied to Gooey Ooey's discussion Making a Lava Lamp
"Hey, congratulations! It looks OK for a first lamp, I love your choice of wax colour. Was that a vinegar bottle, by any chance? :-p Maybe you could try adding some dishwashing fluid or some windscreen/window cleaner in there (coloured or clear) to…"

MagicLamp replied to Steve Farber's discussion Where do I get a replacement spring and should I avoid salt
"Yeah, it should be avoided if possible. I make my own lava lamps (4 so far) and only in the latest one I learned how to make a "saltless" one, but I had to devise a method to control over the goo's density rather than the…"

MagicLamp replied to Justin's discussion Simplified version of the retro formula. must see! in the group Lava Lamp Scientists
"Sorry, but it's pretty much hit or miss if you don't have a small chemical lab at your disposal. If I had a chemical lab and could naiI down the exact quantities used and the exact densities achieved I wouldn't need to resort to such…"

MagicLamp replied to LampHead's discussion Lava Lamp.....Deconstructed
"Very well made, but they perpetrated the "coil transmits heat" misconception though with no reference to breaking the surface tension."

MagicLamp commented on MagicLamp's photo


"This base can accept up to 30W R39 reflectors without smoking, but the lamp worked great even with a 25W R50 reflector, which are cheaper to come by. The bottle is from Ben Bracken Highland Speyside single malt scotch, only sold in LIDL discount…"

"I posted about the salt-free method used for this lamp in the Scientists group too. It's not entirely mess-free, but the end results are well worth it. In theory, it should be more durable than my other lamps, but only time will tell!"

Yeah, it is just an oil burner with the tray for oil taken off. The flame is in direct contact. It heats up really fast. Like 15 minutes fast.

Yeah the candle lava lamp just worked great with just a tea light! The candle heats up the glass really quick but it doesn't seem to get any hotter than a lamp. It's an easy project! You outta try it!
