"Turns out that surf was trapped in the goo , so when I cooked them out, all the surf got released. I have dumped a third of the liquid and refilled with distilled water."

"I take back what I said about bubbles in the wax. They seem to make the lamp appear to overheat. I measured the temperature and it is 47 degrees Celsius (within the threshold). I want to boil out the bubbles, but I'm not sure if this VOSS glass…"

"I do have bubbles in the wax, but they don't seem to be a problem. Oh and I forgot, the base also has a tuna can under the larger can, as shown in the previous pic. That can is where you attach the bulb socket through. A hole is then drilled…"

"The can I used was T&T branded baby corn. However, there can be other brands of food with the same type of can. The can not only has to have 398ml volume, but also a revolved indent around one end. The bottle then can fit snugly into that end.…"

"The lamp actually was still warming up. The goo actually came off the coil and then reattached once it melted ( kinda weird), but I am happy with the violet color. When this goo reaches it's end of life I'll try the true blue."
