Hey all, hope everyone doing well.  Have had some pretty serious medical issues lately and great to be back among the living!  I was antiquing today and ran across a Aristocrat white squiggle base.  Double checked the site and seams to match up.  Here is my dilemma, the opening for the globe on the base is 4.5 inches wide.  I happen to have out my fourth of july flag lamp, which the base seemed similar. Measured that one and it's opening on base is 4.25 inches wide, slightly smaller.  So my…See More

Hi There,

the metallics I had were original mathmos metallics, nothing selfmade. But there seem to be several ways to create metallic wax. One is the sharpie way Dr What came up with (as far as I know) and you just put the contents of a few silver sharpie markers into the wax and the other way would be adding a small amount of the liquid metal motion lamp wax into your wax. They are china brand and they are easily available in the us. They have so much metallic stuff in them that a small amount is enough to end up with the nice metallic surface the mathmos ones had. If you have any questions about mixing, pouring, transfering etc. feel free to ask.

All the best

Arne
