Hello everyone,This week I tried various chemicals for the glitter lamp.First I searched for safety data sheets for glitter.Because the safety data sheets contain the density of glitter. From this I can calculate the density of the liquid. The chemicals I will use must be non-hazardous. I used PERC in my previous work. I have now tried four different chemicals.1- Mono ethylene glycol. d= 1.12 g/cm32- Glycerin d= 1.26 g/cm33- 50% potassium carbonate solution. d= 1.50 g/cm3…Continue
Ok, finally done with my messing around and getting nowhere with this lamp…So I’ve made some goo with paraffin, liquid paraffin, kerosene, and “perc”… I keep getting this unsightly goo and I don’t know how to get my mixture to be #1 completely opaque and #2 free from air bubbles. The mixture flows well but it’s ugly. Anyone know what I could do to get a solid looking goo without all of the bubbles? Continue
It's come to my attention that Magma Tower isn't sourcing goo anymore and I am looking into sourcing it myself to potentially fill the void. The only thing is there will likely be a fairly large minimum order quantity from the manufacturer. Therefore, I'm looking to get an idea of just how interested the community is in purchasing goo to refurbish their lava lamps. If I could get those looking to buy goo to reply to this post and give me an idea of just how much goo your currently interested in…Continue

first , ty for accepting me into your community.ive been browsing the forums for a couple weeks now trying to find a solution.; the wax in my century just melts and sits motionless.ive tried reducing the wattage of the bulb. i havent tried a dimmer yet, but even when the lamp is turned off and begins to cool nothing happens. the wax does melt really quick, and if you slowly tilt the glass, you can see movement, but nothing rises or bubbles up. ive added an epsom salt mixtuire, but that did…Continue
Does anyone have any experience with using powder pigments?I seem to recall reading somewhere that Haggerty used powder pigments from Crayola.The reason I ask, is that I've seen a few "interesting" colors and was wondering if it's worth the time to pursue further and how these powder transfer from the candlemaking industry to lava lamps applications. Not so much interested in Mica due to separation issues.Thinking out loud,.. Has anyone used a chemical to pre-mix them in order to enhance…Continue
