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

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?
