"Matt, most lamps should have 8 to 10 hours running time max, to preserve integrity of the wax.  Exceptions, could be Lunar, Giant, Grande, Humongo or Colossus, which have longer start up and run times.   A dimmer can also be utilized to…"

Man the Lava Rockets Prices Insane!

Wow, the rocket lava lamp prices are out of this world!  No pun intended.  Anything with a point on it, the sky is the limit!  No pun intended.  What is up with the gouging?  When you looking at them, make sure the fin attachments are solid and secure.  Some can be really messed up.  I have about four black rockets and a couple of silver ones, and a off brand one, that is real nice.  What you all think of the prices lately? 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
