Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I decided to post a video of this lamp running by itself since it was too dark to see with other lamps running near by. There's nothing "wrong" with it, it just doesn't flow nearly as nicely as US lava lites. Considering this was $20, (same as my first aristocrat, and $5 more than my blue/yellow aristocrat) I will be buying used US lamps only from now on. (At least until lava lite improves, or mathmos starts selling in the US)

I really like this color, but as everyone has said, that blob flow has got to go!!   I have a few like that too.

I had some running pretty good but the combination of salt and bubble soap clouds up bad . so now im going to use glycerine to adjust water density and SLS ( Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Powder) as surfectant and making the goo go snakey

Too much surf will actually destroy the lava...it'll just rip it apart. Not enough, and the blobs bounce apart like super balls, if they separate at all.

I would like to see what would happen if someone added a tiny bit more surf to a Chinese lamp, but the properties of the wax, like the fact that it seems to not melt properly, can't be so easily attributed to the amount of surf in the liquid.

there appears to be an inverted U-shaped relationship between wax "stretchiness" and amount of surfactant added to the globe.  too little and there's large globes.  too much and you get lots of tiny globes.  just the right amount and it's like sex in a bottle.

Like I said, I may be giving the lava too much credit. :p
