Making your own liquid (Bubbly wax, solutions, flow, etc.)

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.

First the basics

What makes the lava lamp flow is basically the liquid solution being made correctly for the specific wax your lamp uses. In other words, you might not be able to take one liquid from one lamp,…

Need new oil

So my brother was by a couple weeks ago and knocked over my 1975 lamp. The cap (which was already damaged) broke and all the oil spilled out on my carpet. The wax is still in there and very little oil remains. The oil is up to the wide part of the globe . I was wondering if anyone knows what i can use to fill it up again. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Shipping Instructions to Send Sellers

Just reposting instructions I like to send sellers when I purchase a lamp that's traveling via USPS etc. I'm posting as originally written by Weebotech. I modify it a bit as per my lamp situation.

I just did a search here to copy it again so thought I'd post for others who have never seen it or hadn't saved.

Dear Seller,



I am providing this page so that I may receive my purchase in as pristine condition as possible. I know I'm picky with these instructions,…

My NEW Grande isnt so well..GRAND....

It's been awhile, but I really could use all the expert opinions that are available here.....Would anyone care to answer a few for me?



First a little back story...

I purchased this Christmas 2015 a Lava Grande from Amazon, in a yellow wax/blue liquid format with silver base and cap. It arrived to me (NEW OUT OF THE SHIPPING BOX) dark and cloudy (the liquid). I am rather upset about this, and the seller REFUSES to admit one sent me a faulty lamp. One has claimed back that I…

Another Old Lamp Question

I have an all original 1975 Model lamp, I have been messing with the coil and have lost a little liquid out of it. I need to add  a couple of ounces but I am not sure what I can add that wont hurt it. I was told mine has different chemicals than newer ones. Any ideas?

Help finding stuff for my lamp

I have a 1975 model Lava lamp that no longer works. It lights up but the goo doesn't blob and rise like it should. It is a 1975 model 300 Carlisle. the only thing different is the spring in the bottom is broken.

Making My Orange/Black

So I have a 52 oz clear/blue gookit that I'm not feelen anymore.  The blue has turned into a weirdo bizarre plum color that is notorious with the blue dye that comes from MT Goo.  I'm going to dump a butt ton of blue or violet in this lamp to make the goo look almost black, then make a food coloring blend to the orange I like and make my orange and black Halloween lamp out of this clear/blue that i'm not liking anymore.  I came to the conclusion if I really want a true blue lamp, I'm either…

Help me identify this lamp

A customer at my work returned a Lava Lamp that is not one I sell but was inside the new special edition lamp with the white base and purple liquid. I was hoping someone here could help me identify the lamp I now have and where it possibly came from or how old it is.

Hi all,

Quite new to this site.

I've just started selling off some of my collections and have one item left that I no longer need .

It's a lava wave machine all original and only checked/been out of the box twice from new to make sure it works then put straight back in the box .

I love wave machines but prefer the classic rockets so am down to my last wave machine which is on eBay uk at the moment . Just thought I'd make you all aware as fellow collectors appreciate them… Continue
