This is my first try at sun fading a lamp, I couldn't believe how fast the blue faded. just took about four hours in the sun. The bottle was a white/blue bottle from 1994 that I had found at my local thrift store.

I'm new here and a newbie collector, but have always had some type of lava since childhood. Searched site and still had a question. Is it possible to still have a cloudy lava lamp arrive via shipping, that is brand new from a know company, or is this never the case and I was mislead?

Well I hope to meet some of you guys and what not.
First of all, this is not a guide but notes for my self, that hopefully others might find useful. Stuff you find here might already have been described elsewhere on this site.
