"Perchlorate is what you need, but it may mess up the glitter and fluid.  It will make the wax heavier (or more dense) though.  It can be found in brakekleen, but only the red can.  Not sure where all you can find it but here is a…"

All that Glitters is Gold

Seems to me like the popular gold bases with the holes should of been glittered.  It didn't take long to paint, partlly because the Rust-Oleum spray nozzle stopped working after half the can maybe less.  But it was good enough and looked great after a couple coats of clear coat.II sealed the bottom of the lid with poster putty…See More

"The glitter gold looks just as good as I hoped. with a couple coats of clear coat on it too. use a bead reamer for the holes if you paint your aristocrat"

Customizing a black base/top

Posted on August 27, 2018 at 3:00pm 1 Comment

I found a couple lava lamps at a goodwill one is smaller with cloudy clear liquid and navy blue lava on a brushed silver base. the one I'm planning on fixing up is a midnight from 1999.
