"Probably nothing. If the water does manage to cause a short circuit it would just trip a circuit breaker (or GFI outlet). In either case unless your house was wired by an idiot, the power should shut off quickly enough to avoid any damage."

"That's a very cool and ambitious project and it looks like you are making good progress on it! The quality and condition of the glass are going to make all the difference in terms of how well it will respond to the change in…"

tim replied to Mattgyver92's discussion Circulating Hot Water to Heat a Lava Lamp...?
"I feel like the idea would definitely work. My concern would be the safety of the whole thing. Hot water would heat the globe significantly faster and hotter than a lightbulb. There would have to be some sort of temperature regulation mechanism to…"

tim replied to LarryLover's discussion DEFLATED LAVA LAMP - I NEED HELP
"cut a square out around where the valve would go on the thing you want to repair, and then find an old pool float or air mattress or something (actually the big box stores probably have pool floats on clearance right now) and cut a bigger square out…"

tim replied to Mattgyver92's discussion Help with my recipe/balance?
"it's very precise and in my opinion a lot of luck. i've attempted probably like 10 lamps at this point and have only gotten good flow out of two of them. i will say one trick is to mix a wax that is going to be too heavy. you can always…"

tim replied to JAMES BENINI's discussion Need to rebuild my lamp
"everyone here will advise against using salt and dish soap these days, the main reasons being salt will corrode and dish soap contains other ingredients that may have unintended consequences. the ingredients people advise using in place of salt and…"

tim replied to Mattgyver92's discussion It's hip to be square - DIY Square block lava lamp build
"That's a smart idea and would be a very fancy setup, although i'm not sure if i would be interested in building something similar as I don't run my lamps when I am not home at all out of fears that my shoddy wiring/construction will…"

tim replied to Mattgyver92's discussion It's hip to be square - DIY Square block lava lamp build
"My SLS came super concentrated and nearly the entire bottle was filled with white substance to the point where I would have had to scrape rather than pour it out. I heated the bottle by putting it in a bowl of warm water and after like 10-15 minutes…"

tim replied to Jsmooth's discussion Propylene Glycol problems
"try glycerin? it's much denser than pg so you don't need to add as much to balance it"

tim replied to Mattgyver92's discussion It's hip to be square - DIY Square block lava lamp build
"looks awesome! as for color i'm thinking either stain the base a light color (or don't stain it at all) and do a dark color wax like black or purple, or stain the base a dark color and do a light color wax like yellow or orange. this would…"

tim replied to Mattgyver92's discussion Progress on my square lava lamp - Sealing the glass block
"i don't see why you would run into problems just because it's square, to me the bigger issue would be the acrylic melting. either way you don't know until you try it, and i am looking forward to your next update!"

tim replied to Mattgyver92's discussion Difficulties getting a nice pink/purple fluid color
"when do you add the dye? if you dye the liquid as the very last thing you do and you do it while the lamp is running it shouldn't be that hard to get the color right. otherwise are you making purple by mixing red and blue or do you have purple…"
