what color cap?
also it would be a refill of water, salt or fog juice, and a surfactant. Ive never done it yet.
Ask around about a "gookit" for the fill. I may have a spare empty bottle, but it'd be the big (Century, Aristocrat) size, and there's a small starlite model, too. Can you post a photo of the base?
you can fill the globe with distilled water, but leave ~ 2-2.5 in. of space at the top. turn the lamp on and let the wax melt. it won't flow yet, but don't worry. then prepare a solution of epsom salt and water to add to the globe. you can do this by heating some water on the stove (don't simmer or boil, just heat it until it's warm) and slowly mix in the epsom salt while stirring. do this until no more salt will dissolve in the solution. next, let the solution cool and then slowly add it to the globe by using the end of a straw - put the straw in the solution, put your fingertip over the straw, then put the straw in the globe and remove your finger. keep adding the epsom salt solution until the lamp begins to flow again. you can also add 1 drop of dawn dish soap (no antibacterial stuff, just regular soap) as a surfactant. this will give you more stretchy flow if all you are getting are round blobs. it may not be needed though. again, if you add it, just do a very small amount or else you will ruin the wax. good luck!

Thank you for answering. Do you know what to put in it ? I am now hoping to find an old bottle with the right screw on top. Does anyone have a bottle and cap for sale?
