COLLECTING COLOR

I don't collect lamps I collect the moving color lava globes that go in lamp bases. The majority of my over 50 lamps are 32oz Lava Lite Midnights simply because at night the base and cap fade into the background and the moving colors take center stage. 9 of my lamps have silver bases to cluster around the silver base Grande.



When I started my moving color collection 2/2008 my original plan was to acquire 25 midnight clear/colored wax lamps to put in black bookcases making The Wall o… Continue

Painting with lava lamps and a camera

I officially now have a giant pile of 32z midnights in lotso colors and am able to specifically position and heat lamps to layer, and blend colors with lava movement on a scale with real depth. Previously I was just lumping lamps together and taking opportunity pics.



I'm setting the lamps up then heating them until they spike and turning them off. I can easily move the globes without causing cloudiness and have an easy to see palette of colors to consider when positioning the lamps… Continue

Flaky wax

On the third of April I acquired a vintage yellow/orange Carlisle from a vintage shop in my town (see my photos)-- now I can say officially that I have a collection of lamps!



My 25 watt that came with my first lamp, a new Lava brand from Target, wasn't hot enough, and the wax half-way melted into these weird positions and I was worried that it had semi-petrified. But I bought a 40 watt bulb and all is right with the world. It chugs away happily all day (it just sent up its first… Continue

Meditation Lamp Recreation

I have been curious about the Meditation Lamps pictured in the Lava World gallery below. This is the only picture I have seen and I do not know of anyone who has one. If you do, or know someone who does, please post pictures.

I filled a Consort Globe with white lava and clear fluid. I blew the ad up till it matched the actual size of the Consort Globe. This gave me an idea of how big to make the Cross and where to position it on the globe. I made the Cross in Photoshop and printed it on a… Continue

Do We Want Widgets?

I've had a few people ask for a feature to find out who's online at the moment. The only way to do it is to scroll through the members list and look, but this takes time. So I just loaded that little box on the right, appropriately called "Who's Online". Pretty cool, huh? You ask, and I shall deliver - if the stars align and I know how to... ;-)

There's another widget out there called chat that I can install. My only hesitation is that widgets slow down the loading of our Main page.…

Bad Website: Lavacreations.com

Don't be had! I was so excited to find a website that I thought sold these retired models, midnights, silverstreaks, and giants (yes giants!) But NOOOO. The site is no good. I tried to purchase three lamps, fortunately my money was refunded without hassel, but seeing that the site is still up, we dont want to see anyone else get taken or be mistaken. I should have been alarmed when it didnt charge anything for shipping, it just goes right to paypal, but the stars in my eyes from these rare…

So Long, Farewell

Today I could not stand it any longer, I had to do it. I sent back my 52 oz. yellow lava clear liquid on a blue base. :(

As I was using it, it got worse and worse to the point it got so cloudy that I could not see through it anymore. The pictures look better than the actual thing.

Pics are below.…

New Chrome Lava Lamps - Under Our Radar

chrome lava lamp bases

So why didn't anyone tell us that LavaWorld was about to come out with a new line of chrome lava lamps? As Dr.WHAT? pointed out, the release of the new line somehow slipped under our collective radar. How'd 'dat happen?!? Unlike other new product releases by LW, this time there was no press release which seems particulraly strange considering these lamps are among the…

Thanks Leeder for the awesome Camel lamp. It looks great next to my Millenium Lamp. How do you like the yellow globe I put in it? Now all I need is a Budweiser Aristocrat. Anyone? Anyone? Will trade or buy! Will beg for lava :)

Why a new site?

Welcome to the new Oozing Goo! For the past 2 months, I've been secretly working on a new community version of OG.

Why a new site? Because OG is truly a community; There are so many great lava lamp devotees in this group that can share far more info in this revamped site. Every member can have your own page, right here at OG, where you can share pictures, write a blog, start a group, add friends and much more.

Take a look around and enjoy!

Hope you like…
