Lamp New Cloudy problem.

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jon Mar 17. 11 Replies

I bought a lamp off Ebay, kind of like a rocket but wire legs. The liquid was clear but the wax would not separate or float. A bigger bulb 40w was no help. So back to the 30w. I added some epsom salt…Continue

"I have 2 looks like 20 oz 1 = 32oz and 1 = 250oz, looks like I need max 3.2oz for all of them. I see the link you gave was 1oz (only) and 60% the rest on ebay was approx 28%  I assume I need the 60% solution. thank you again."

Lamp from Germany

I bought a lamp off Ebay, kind of like a rocket but wire legs. The liquid was clear but the wax would not separate or float. A bigger bulb 40w was no help. So back to the 30w. I added some epsom salt and got the balance good but I only got a large blob, so I added some dish washing liquid and it started to flow. However every time I add the dish washing liquid it starts to get cloudy. Im using Ivory clear. Any Ideas?See More
