Galaxy_9 replied to ash-hole!'s discussion Help! Confusion over "mini" goo kit!
"That's too bad to hear it happened, I actually don't know of any others' dyes that works with the Magma Tower kits. I have been coming to OG since 1997 but I am not a "know it all" by any means just know some basics and many…"

Galaxy_9 replied to ash-hole!'s discussion Help! Confusion over "mini" goo kit!
"Ash-Hole, what dyes did you order as the extras? So you are saying one is more clear / gel looking when flowing and the other more opaque / less see through. Wonder if the dyes had something to do with that."

"As Claude said, Yes, go to thrift stores! Don't be shy to take your empty Voss bottle with you and see what fits with it. Check out the cookware area to look for storage cookie jars, food containers, etc made of metal. I made one sometime ago…"

Galaxy_9 replied to Claude J's discussion MOVING SUCKS
"That does suck regarding all that damage, and having to moving around. I had lived with a family member for several years as I saved up for a downpayment on a house. And during that time I had to keep moving lamps around, reboxing, shuffling them…"

"Here is the way I remember it, anyone else feel free to chime in... The Giants started were released in 1994 (I think but maybe a tad earlier). They first only had a black base and had a plastic cap and the 3 globe colors were as follows. I remember…"

Profile Information

Something Interesting About Me:
Long time collector been coming to OG since 1997! It was here that I first saw other vintage lamps in the history section, and that was my drug of choice. I love mid-century modern. And like to display just a few good choice lamps at a time.
Where I Live:
Orlando, FL
My First Lava Lamp was:
My first NEW lamp was in 1994 I was 13 and bought it at Spencer's, blue white with black base.
I got into collecting around mid 90's when I first saw a Collectibles magazine on vintage lava lamps. It was the first time I had really seen pinhole based lamps.

The first vintage I acquired was the nightlight clown, knowing nothing about if this was an authentic version or if some kid just stuck a decal on the glass to make it cute. Well I snagged it, and although it had some dead lava and a crack in the glass lip I still found it alluring and later found out it was rare.
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
50 ish
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
Centuries and Giants
Relationship Status:
In a Relationship

Hi Galaxy, really great to see your post on here today (20th). You should come back more often. Is that your gorgeous Capri in your pics?

Fading Grandes... I didn't remove the cap to recolor them. I place a folded towel down, place the globe, take a small phillips screwdriver & a hammer, gently tap till it's through the cap. Then work the screwdriver around, till the hole has the clearance for the syringe, draw the coloring into the syringe & slide the needle through the rubber seal. Add the coloring, swish the globe & add more coloring if needed. Then I take strips of aluminum foil, fold it 2-4 times, stick it in the hole, fold over the spot in the cap, hammer it down flat & duct tape over the cap. That's it! My Grande has been running with this redneck patch with no leakage or evaporation for nearly a year!

Thanks!!! I'll keep you posted! Can I ask what these were originally? Is the wax from another vintage lamp or a new lamp? American or China-I'm not part of the group that thinks china lamps are the worst lamps EVER!! I've had lots of luck with china goo!
Have you made your own glitter? I would love to figure out that formula. There are so many beautiful glitters at craft stores-many options is I could just figure out that damn liquid!!!!

Good morning! I received the 2 globes yesterday! Thanks! I put the purple and pink on a oil burner like you did and it worked great. I don't think that will be the route I'll go though. It fell off and the wax from the tea light went everywhere-I've yet to find something sturdy! Have you ever found an olive jar that fits a Mediterranean or Consort? I haven't looked yet. The glitter intrigues me. Its the first glitter i've had that I didn't try to make. It doesn't flow as quickly as I thought it would so I'm not sure I'll do much with it-have you ever made a glitter? Did you get a good flow on the glitter when you had it? I possibly didn't give it much of a chance since it was just perched on top of my Mediterranean!
Anyway-thanks again! Lots of fun!

Thanks for your comments! I am actually going to return the grandes because they were running too hot. After about 5 hours the goo was not connecting to the coils anymore. I have that issue with almost all my lamps and dimmers on everything so I just don't want to deal with these big ones doing it too!

I just saw your Red Giant! And I LOVE IT. I got mine at "Who's who at the Zoo" in Calgary 2001 also. That store has since closed..and apparently -according to the other "Who's who" stores- the original manufacturer for that particular store went out of business. So trying to get any info when my fluid levels dropped was impossible till I met you guys. The levels were always above the cap till the last couple of years?? I love your collection! GREAT STUFF :)
