"That looks more like unmelted wax bits. If so you could try straining the wax with a fine mesh stainless steel strainer. Since the wax bits are not incorporated but the lamp is still flowing I suspect removing those bits won't…"
"there are no cures that i am aware of, though some people have reported good results with increasing the temperature by using a 60w bulb. in this case, i don't think it will work. if the price is right, i'd buy it for everything else and…"
I am a Lava Lamp nut from way back.....l am always looking for new lamps to add to my collection. Ah, Lava Lamps....It's an addiction....but crack is just way to expensive!
Please check out my online site (and give me some hits to bump up my Google rating!) www.6-ft-under.com !!!!! Thanks!!
PS Yes the car in the photo is a hearse....I own 5 of 'em.
I first fell in love in a yard with tall grass tickling the backs of my knees. The love of my life was on a low plywood table held up by milk crates. The owner of the yard sale saw me staring, and said "$1 and she's all yours." Well happily to say this relationship has seen many years and more loves (lamps)...but my original Lava Lamp and I are together still.....our love burns (and bubbles) hot as always!
No kidding about being "normal..." I always feel just a bit weird tho when I open the door tot he Fed Ex guy and he sees the huge alien torso coming out of the wall and the skulls hanging from the stair railing!! Well, okay, not really. I just thought I'd take a stab at normalcy!
Sounds awesome! You got lucky with that tin. It is hard to find the right size to fit these unusual bottles. I saw some plastic bushings @ Lowes today that would snap into the hole in your tin to protect your cord from the sharp edges. You probably already know about these. I am going to try them on some of my lamps. Watch out for the Gorilla Glue or you will be walking around with a Lava Skull in your hand for good. LOL. That is some of the strongest glue I have ever seen. Keep up the good work.
With an imagination like yours I'm sure you will pick a good color. Probably some new color combination. I will be watching for your skull. Any ideas for your base? The bottom of my Crystal Skull is square.
