Started Jun 6 0 Replies

One of my globes (Mathmos) is turning quite faded and I'd been pondering trying to refresh the colour of the master fluid a bit.  I've seen the odd post about people using food colouring (not great)…Continue

"Well crap, one of the clips snapped lol.  (it's old and the plastic is brittle - I knew it was a possibility but figured I'd give it a go anyway). No big deal, it's not like I could really use the thing anyway. Looking at it…"

"I honestly wish they'd let us select base colours. My desk is black with dark walls behind, the white bases just stand out horrendously. I also found out the hard way that the bases REALLY need rubber grommet thingies on the bottom :(  I…"

"I'm guessing it's the same colour as the copper astro?  It looks quite a bit different in the single photo, a bit more similar in the video but still not quite the same?"

"will do.  There hasn't been anything so far, however, I have to say I'm not a regular social media user either so it's entirely possible that I'll miss something. I think the new models will still have email notifications,…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Mark Britten's discussion How much wax in Mathmos lamps, Astro vs baby?
"Just a suggestion, have you tried using a dimmer? I've found the the snake type movement tends to happen when the lamp is running cooler.  It may be worth trying a cheap dimmer socket first before dropping money on the vintage…"

"My thoughts on these...  Copper, absolutely *HOWEVER*...  I would really like to see them pick a copper colour and stick with it!  The neo's are a completely different copper to the astro from what I can tell looking at the site…"

""We have decided for now that new metal colourways in current models will be treated differently to completely new Mathmos lava lamp models. Completely new models will have an etch, print or badge on the product itself. We will let you know on…"

"Are you sure it's hot enough?  it may just be that your bulb needs replacing.  They tend to start stringy when they are warming up then eventually shift to breaking into blobs"

"if there's one or two legs that are causing the isue it may be worth sanding them down a little rather than trying to prop them, just a thought. The sticker doesn't look astounding, but I kinda get why they went with it, part of the whole…"

"I believe it is flat (like the centre of a record would be).  There are no ridges showing through on the sticker. Yeah, given that they do first 100 runs on a semi-regular basis, you'd think it would be feasible for them to knock up some…"

"Mine arrived! I ended up with a first 100, #23 It's really quite lovely.  The cord is quite thick and stiff so it did take a little bending to get in to place.  It's a shame they don't stamp the first 100 on rather than use…"
