Neo Shatterproof coating removal

"The lava can take 1-2 hrs to start moving.  I’ve never had a crestworth so I can’t say for certain. as far as I know, the Astro bottles will fit (look under “spares and repairs” on the Mathmos website).…"

"I had emailed them a couple of months ago to ask if they would be getting the metallic back in stock, they told me they were working to improve them and they would be back at some point. I wonder if they made any changes."

Metallic Astros back in stock (UK)

Just a head's up that Mathmos have the metallic yellow and red back in stock.I'd had the site open in another tab for a few days and when I clicked on the tab it refreshed and I got a 404, so I have a feeling something else might have changed too... I just can't figure out what I had been looking at!I checked the metallics on the off-chance and they were there so that's a bonus at least.See More

MonsoonStorm replied to lampfancy's discussion Fluid swap? (Mathmos Astro)
"Ok, I had a closer look at my turquoise/violet and orange/violet after they had cooled, it seems the “bits” are very similar between them after all, so I’m guessing it could very well be dye in both cases: The violet orange has…"

MonsoonStorm replied to lampfancy's discussion Fluid swap? (Mathmos Astro)
"My violet/orange has specs in like that, it's definitely different to the dye specs I see in turquoise/blue. These ones don't lessen at all. I'll take a couple of comparison photos when they've cooled."

"I have a few bottle that have been "gritty", I'm fairly certain it's dye (and Mathmos did say as much when I enquired about it with them).  My turquoise bottles have been particularly bad in this respect.I have found that…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"Funnily enough I've recently been seeing cheap knock offs on ebay that are the fluidium shape, but with metal bodies. They seem to be coming from Germany Not sure why Mathmos never bothered to give it a go in metal, but then it's the same…"
