    Trying to crack the original formula- why was kerosene used?

    Started by Ant Bee in General Goo. Last reply by Claude J 7 hours ago. 78 Replies

    In my quest to figure out exactly what the original formula is, one thing I haven't figured out is why they used Kerosene in the mixture.  It seems like it was a very small part of the mixture, something like 7% by volume.But what was the point?  Did it act as a preservative, or enhance the flow, or help to bind everything together?Speculations?Continue

    Anyone know how to make a newer lamp more active like the 90s lamps?

    Started by Kyle S in Problems & Questions. Last reply by bob y 9 hours ago. 15 Replies

    Hi,I have a 52 oz globe from Spencer's, and I noticed that it really only tends to flow nicely when I put it on a 50 wattage bulb and it flows beautifully just like a 90s USA lamp. The lamp uses a 40 watt bulb, but when I actually use a 40 watt bulb, the wax melts but it just sits at the bottom in one giant blob.What can I add to the fluids to make the lava flow and be more active while on a 40 watt?I was reading I could add some salt, but does anyone know a trick or anything I can do to make…Continue

    Anyone know if the paint on Spencers lamp glass can be removed easily?

    Started by Robin Miller in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Mr MaGoo 19 hours ago. 5 Replies

    Maybe it's just me but I don't like painted colors on the glass bottle - I'd rather see the actual colors inside.Specers has some neat lamps but a lot of them have painted bottles. This one, for example, would look really cool as a white lamp with white wax - if the rainbow paint could be stripped. Has anyone done this? Acetone? Paint stripper? Wire wool? Just guessing, as I don't…Continue

    Schylling and Lava Lamp's Future

    Started by Ryan in General Goo. Last reply by bob y yesterday. 10 Replies

    I haven't posted here in quite some time, so I apologize if this has already been discussed. Is it just me or does it seem like Schylling is running Lava Lamp into the ground? The Lava Lamp website shows pretty much every product out of stock. I see that Schylling offers some lava lamps on their website, but the selection isn't that big. Moreover, Spencer's isn't offering many lava lamp selections on their website either. I would love to hear more input on this.Continue

    I can touch the outside of glass and it cleans it a little shut gets worse , am sure this is wax on the inside of teh lamp . Am thinking  maybe to open it when cold , take the water out and try and clean it , maybe I should take out the wax also . But then am worried the wax will still get stuck when I put the wax back . Maybe you guys and gals have an idea thx . Continue
