This is a light blue goo with purple liquid. The camera makes it look like the liquid is blue but it is actually purple!!

love this song :D
Hummm, good question. This is a 52 oz globe. I use a very definite receipe of 225 grams of wax and I make sure there is a good few inches of space at the top. Also, I only add 15 ml of surf, but I do add a few drops here and there if any wax starts to stick. I run my kits on 60 watt bulbs on dimmer's 3/4 of the way up. They start that way and once I find the sweet spot I normally do not touch the dimmers unless the room temp changes by 10 degrees or more I do not change where the dimmer is. Also, I have 3 coils in this one. I run all of my 52's on 2 coils now. I think a little of everything plays a part in this. You think this one is fast? Now see, I think that when they move like that they are too slow, lol!!! Then when I bump up the heat, they move way faster, but then they get too hot and I start to have problems with the wax sticking to the inside of the globe so I have been enjoying them running a tad slower, but at least no sticking wax.
Very nice. This 'evolves' much faster than any of my old-school Lavalites. Is this because of extra -heat- or using a lower goo/H2O ratio?
Glitter is so much easier!!! I hate to admit coming from a fellow goohead!!!....especially the fact they don't need coils. I have had a run for my money kitting some new china lamps with bad coils and trying to find and make makeshift coils. Also, I'm always having to fudge with my kits. Adding surf due to wax sticking issues, darkening wax that seems to have lost it's color, etc., etc., It's ok because they're mine and it's no biggie to just "fix" it. I feel it's part of the hobbie. I wouldn't want those headaches though fixing someone else's. lol!!!
I've had a few people wanting me to make them one, but I'm hesitant because they are not without their "bugs" as I call them!!! First off, the overheating issues which causes the goo to stick to the inside of the globes causing that "fog/soap scum/haze, streaks" whatever you want to call it. Kim from Magma says its from letting them get too hot. The candidate for a custom kit lamp would have to be a goo head from the door and understand how to run one of these to peak performance or run the risk of ruining it. I wouldn't want a bunch of my unsatisfied customers, i.e., friends coming back because their lamp now looks like the creature from the blue lagoon, lololol!!!! So on a serious, but not so serious note, lol to your comment, although like I said, I have had inquiries.......
Excellent colors Carol! When are you opening your own goo-kit distribution?
Colors are awesome !
