Hi Galaxy, really great to see your post on here today (20th). You should come back more often. Is that your gorgeous Capri in your pics?

Fading Grandes... I didn't remove the cap to recolor them. I place a folded towel down, place the globe, take a small phillips screwdriver & a hammer, gently tap till it's through the cap. Then work the screwdriver around, till the hole has the clearance for the syringe, draw the coloring into the syringe & slide the needle through the rubber seal. Add the coloring, swish the globe & add more coloring if needed. Then I take strips of aluminum foil, fold it 2-4 times, stick it in the hole, fold over the spot in the cap, hammer it down flat & duct tape over the cap. That's it! My Grande has been running with this redneck patch with no leakage or evaporation for nearly a year!

Thanks!!! I'll keep you posted! Can I ask what these were originally? Is the wax from another vintage lamp or a new lamp? American or China-I'm not part of the group that thinks china lamps are the worst lamps EVER!! I've had lots of luck with china goo!
Have you made your own glitter? I would love to figure out that formula. There are so many beautiful glitters at craft stores-many options is I could just figure out that damn liquid!!!!

Good morning! I received the 2 globes yesterday! Thanks! I put the purple and pink on a oil burner like you did and it worked great. I don't think that will be the route I'll go though. It fell off and the wax from the tea light went everywhere-I've yet to find something sturdy! Have you ever found an olive jar that fits a Mediterranean or Consort? I haven't looked yet. The glitter intrigues me. Its the first glitter i've had that I didn't try to make. It doesn't flow as quickly as I thought it would so I'm not sure I'll do much with it-have you ever made a glitter? Did you get a good flow on the glitter when you had it? I possibly didn't give it much of a chance since it was just perched on top of my Mediterranean!
Anyway-thanks again! Lots of fun!

Thanks for your comments! I am actually going to return the grandes because they were running too hot. After about 5 hours the goo was not connecting to the coils anymore. I have that issue with almost all my lamps and dimmers on everything so I just don't want to deal with these big ones doing it too!

I just saw your Red Giant! And I LOVE IT. I got mine at "Who's who at the Zoo" in Calgary 2001 also. That store has since closed..and apparently -according to the other "Who's who" stores- the original manufacturer for that particular store went out of business. So trying to get any info when my fluid levels dropped was impossible till I met you guys. The levels were always above the cap till the last couple of years?? I love your collection! GREAT STUFF :)

Nice everything. Great photos but better still great vintage collection - interesting, outrageous stuff! Display's are best I've seen and inspire me to borrow your display ideas (I'll pay royalties)!

I love your display Galaxy, clean, modernist and just fantastic. A great selection of lamps. I have something to aspire to when I finally display my collection.

Best wishes
Jerome

Greetings.
In answer to your question about the Imperial, I dumped the old liquid contents, washed the wax off with clean water, and put the wax back in the globe. I then filled the globe with distilled water, added a squirt of dishsoap (to help the flow), then tuned up the water with sea salt until it flowed well.

Sea salt is pure salt (as opposed to table salt which has sugar in it). I simply scooped a small quantity of the water out of the globe, dissolved some salt in it, then pored it back into the globe. I repeated this process sveral times until I got the wax to just skim the top of the liquid under full operating temperature.

It took a few days to get it just right.

Cheers.

it was an ebay find. I really wish i had gotten the red and the purple also. I also love that it matches the colors in my room so well.

it takes talent to take something new, and mix it with something old and make it all look vintage...kudos! I actually thought that walmart one was one, that i had seen on ebay going for a lot of money... european vase. will show you picture later of my vintage starburst that looks much like yours

I love the starburst clock, and viking glass, very retro. I have a few starburst clocks myself, and some retro art glass/vases.

I know, I cannot wait to go to Ikea too! I am just waiting for the crowds to die down. I have been to the one in Atlanta. Where else can you get ridiculously long curtains that come with iron-on hemming to customize the length.
