Mark replied to Kirk's discussion Fast & Slow Glitter Liquid for Sale! ** Summer Break, Back in October **
"Another French lamp. Clear fluid, and loaded with silver sequin flakes (with the odd coloured one mixed in) which provide a very dense effect when lit. It's beautiful.  The fluid was all there, but the sequins collapsed after a few minutes…"

"So I can confirm it was just a really tight cap (albeit a very thick and heavy one), with no glue whatsoever. Resorted to giving it another douse with wd40, putting the cap end in a vice (inside a leather gardening glove to protect the finish), and…"

Mark replied to Mark's discussion Help needed to remove cap/lid
"Hi Andy, Unfortunately the gap is paper thin, so no room for a flat blade, but when immersed in water it does fill up so the glue has to be on the top of the cap I'd imagine. Strange as it just looks like the other French glitters I have which…"

"It's been red hot, with no harm done (expect for the slight burn on my finger) but still not budging! Never known anything like it. The is a slight rattle in the lid now though, so something had dislodged?!  I wonder if soaking it in some…"

"Thanks both. 3 days soaking in cola and it's still stuck fast, so think I'll need to resort to the big (heat) guns! As you suggest kero48 I'll try to keep and keep it moving. Cheers"

"Heat gun/blow dryer. He would need to keep it constantly moving as to not concentrate the heat to much in one place as it could warm or distort the decorative cap, which if it happens, would be hard to return to original shape."

Kirk replied to Mark's discussion Help needed to remove cap/lid
"Mark, did you get it yet? I've been out of pocket working my day job and then some lately. It's likely glued to the bottle.  I'd use a heat gun or blow dryer on high.  The heat will cause the glue to free up.  Just take…"

"No, it should be a 25w bulb, but does it whether it's 15w or 25w, and drops really quickly - like after a couple of minutes."

Mark replied to Mark's discussion Help needed to remove cap/lid
"It just doesn't work properly. Movement for a few minutes and then the glitter just collapses on the bottom again. I've seen this with another sequin lamp, and cured it by swapping over about two thirds of the original fluid with…"
