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…Continue

Sometimes you have a thought...
A thought like "uh, wouldn't it be nice to have a new friend?" .
Or like "mmmmh, is that an empty space there in my shelf, which should be filled?" .
Or like (to be honest)…Continue

I require a base unit for the above. Earlier this week the lamp stopped working ; switch it on and nothing happens. After a discussion with Mathmos she suggested I try and see if someone here might have one available as they stopped making this particular model some time ago.
Any advice/comments/suggestions appreciated
Thanks for reading
On December 6th at 3:35AM my Purple/Yellow Colossus exploded.....yes you read that right.
I had to get a bit of distance between then and now before I could post about this. The week that this happened had to be one of the worst weeks of my life. Here's the low down........

I'm posting here mostly for whatever advice can be provided, and so I'll have some people to share my project with.
I suppose I'll start with the bottle I'm using for a globe. It's just an old Bombay Sapphire bottle that had been laying around my house for a long time, thought it would make for a sweet lava lamp.…Continue
I'm wondering if anyone can help.

I've had a remarkable year where Lava Lamps are concerned. I had been looking for an Imperial for a good while and thinking I might never find one. Sure, I knew where there are five or so, but they are in the hands of people who love them. I was quite shocked to get the chance to buy Jim's Imperial this past March. The funny thing is that I almost passed on it when he made me the offer. I'm sure many would wonder why I even gave that notion a thought. Well, last Fall I stumbled on to…Continue
I finally got to the hardware store. I purchased a cord with a socket attached and came to find no 40 watt bulbs fit the size socket said cord came stock with. Branching out of my comfort zone, I bought a ceramic light mounting base and decided to try my hand at wiring.
There is no greater joy than not really knowing what you are doing, plugging the franken-light in, and having it work (especially when so very few things seem to ever work on the first try)!
With that out of the…Continue
I just recieved my first Goo Kit,
Can anyone help with some input. There are no instructions, nothing is even marked. As a newbie who has never done a lamp, where do I start. ???
Apology for posting in the wrong place
As of December, I no longer have a vehicle so aside from getting to and from work, I don't get out too much anymore. Lack of transportation has prevented me from getting what I need at the hardware store to make my first lamp... but that goo kit has been staring me in the face for two weeks and I just couldn't wait any longer.
I dusted off my 750ml Crystal Head vodka bottle and went to town. Luckily, it fits on my 52oz bases (albeit, leaning back). The result was wonderful,…Continue
Today I did some sketching. I decided to start with the Super Mario ? block since that will be the easier to build and, let's be honest, nothing motivates more than finishing what is started. After taking some measurements of a 52oz globe, I set to work on scaling the project out. For the sake of simplicity, I shaved off a half inch from the base (seeing as the standard contemporary century base is about 6.5 inches high). Since the base is a cube, I only conceptualized one side (the front).…Continue
