"Sorry, aside from the lamp above, I think I've sold all of my boilers now, with the exception of a few that I'm hanging to. Will let you know if I decide to sell the others though. "

"Well let me know if you're interested in it, as selling off most of my lamps, and wouldn't want a fortune for it. I'll message you with a link for one of the spherical lamps. It's in France though, and when I asked a couple of…"

Jonas Clark-Elliott replied to Mark's discussion Does anyone know anything about this French glitter strand lamp?
"Yes, over time the nasty solvent liquid will eat the silvering off the mylar glitter, regardless of bulb wattage. I'd hold onto it anyway, it being rare and unusual. Yes, maybe try some colors on the bottom. I just checked, and no, I've…"

Mark replied to Mark's discussion Does anyone know anything about this French glitter strand lamp?
"Thanks for the information Jonas. Sadly the glitter strands in this one have lost their sparkle, and obviously can't be replaced as it's a sealed globe. Not sure if it had the wrong bulb fitted at some point or whether that was a common…"

"French glitter. I lump sealed globe glitters in with boilers. These (sealed glitter lamps) were all made by "M.U.C." of Paris, and are well worth grabbing. Rarely do I see the same model twice; I've seen this base once before, but…"

"Mr MaGoo, you're absolutely right.I've now reassembled the lamp with a screw-type fitting (I live in Italy and bayonet bulbs are extremely awkward to get hold of). But the first pic at the top of this thread shows the bulb holder in place.…"

Mick P replied to Mark's discussion How Remove Crestworth One Piece Astro Base?
"Something to note is that on my circa 1973 lamp, the hexagonal nut that holds the actual lamp holder in place is fixed to its opposing part by a tiny locking screw, which you need to release before you can unscrew the nut. Maybe later lamps had a…"

"If you've got any tips for the glycol it would be good to hear them. I've never had much luck. Did get a Crestworth lantern flowing beautifully after a filter and some glycol, but after not using it for a couple of weeks it was flat again,…"

"Heat shield? Is that something you've added? There shouldn't be any shield in there. Have you tried it with a 30w spot?"

Mark replied to Matthew's discussion Lava not rising
"That's odd. The lid shouldn't make any difference tbh. Should run the same with the lid on/off. Regardless, looks like it's flowing well now. Perhaps it was just a little sleepy after being in storage so long!"

Suitable Dye for Solvent Based Glitter Lamps?

Can anyone recommend a suitable product for dyeing solvent based fluids?I've been using candle dye, which look great. However, it's very sensitive to sunlight which causes irreversible colour change if your lamp catches any rays (and not always in a good way!).  ThanksSee More
