All that Glitters is Gold

Posted on September 13, 2018 at 10:41pm 2 Comments

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…

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.
