In 2009 I was the Director of Operations for Magma Tower, producers of the largest lava lamps in the world. After a fall out with the former owner I was locked out of all of my accounts associated with the company. Fast forward to present day and that owner has been bought out by the inventor himself Louie Finkle. Now I am helping Louie get his company back under control and producing beautiful motion lamp displays.
"Jonny Magma used to be a rep for Magma Tower and Goo Kits. This looks like an older version of what is now the Spectrum. Looks like an MT-200 with modified Spectrum components in the base. The lamp has changed a lot since this point. You can check…"
Hey Jonny. Don't know if it was you I talked to a few weeks back, but who ever it was I talked to on phone was telling that there are 10 new colors on the way, and that a black was being worked on. Any chance of an update as to where your at. Know your all busy with all the updates. Just placed an order for more stuff.
Hi Jonny. A quick question about coloring the goo. I have all these unsightly red specks that look like dirt floating in the goo. I used an orange dye and the colour came out great but for all the speckly bits. Could this be a bad batch of orange dye??
Hi Jonny, yes its on a dimmer. have tried it on all kinds of settings and with different coils, an original lunar coil (brand new), and a smaller astro coil, and also both. Seems to run the same whatever i use and whatever setting i have it on, but the hotter it is, all the blobs just sit at the top. i have turned the dimmer right down to about 20% (20w) and still runs bad. :(. very disappointed-have not even bothered to make up the other 2 batches yet. thanks Tony
Hi Jonny, did my first goo refill on a lunar yesterday using the orange blacklight dye. the wax seems to be seperating into loads of tiny balls and blobs instead of stretching. i tried to add more surfactant but made no difference. Also when it cools down after using it doesn't settle as it should at the bottom of the bottle, it just sits in a mound-it seems like it is cooling and setting hard before it has a chance to fall to the bottom, any ideas? thanks Tony
I'm not so sure you're in the market to give any advice, but I have been trying to make a pea green wax for about a year now. I can't seem to get a pure green. There is always a red glow. Any way your goo kit could be tweeked to do a green with more yellow in it? I'm not too sure how the kits work. Is the buyer of the kit in charge of mixing the colors?
