After extensive testing, I'm now offering many NEW glitter colors in clear fast liquid. They are gorgeous! Here are a few of the options. I'll post them all below in this discussion and in my videos.
I've also developed replacement slow glitter formulas for the Florence Art, Heat Tapes, Mastercrafters, and Crestworth glitter lamps of the 60s and 70s. The liquid in these formulas is non-flammable, non-combustible, and much less toxic than the fast, solvent-based liquid.
To simplify things, both fast and slow glitter liquid are now available at the same prices. Here are some FAQs on the glitter liquid.
I fill all orders on a first come, first served basis. I do all of the work by hand and take care to ensure quality. Please allow 2-3 weeks from payment for delivery.

The picture of the French globe top looks like a Consort. Is the glass screw top smaller or larger than a Consort glass screw top?
Fast strand glitter - do you mean the small rather than the large, long strand found in Hunter UK lamps?

http://imgur.com/yiSuiJe Here's my French globe's top. I'm using the cap off a water bottle, which sort of fits. It's the standard, common French lamp, a polished steel oval with oval windows in each side. Is there a photo of your fast strand glitter anywhere? That's what was in this when I got it.
Thank you, John. I've got a couple of orders ahead of you, but I'll get to it as fast as I can.
Did you see the picture of the blue 52 with large holo squares that I did for Doug? It's a few replies back on this discussion.
Kirk, they look incredible!! Can't wait to get them back!
Yes Kirk, mine had long strands. The screw cap is indeed wider than a Consort. A standard water or soda bottle screw cap fits.
Is there a photo of your light blue?
Also: my Florence really needs the red plugs. It leaks slightly.
If you think you can cap the oval globe, Kirk, I'd probably refill it with fast liquid, clear, large holo squares. It'd be spectacular!
I think we should give capping it a shot, Jonas. If you like, go ahead and mail me the globe, and I'll see if I can cap it. In the mean time, I'll send you a couple of rubber plugs for your Florence. Same address?
*** ORDERS UPDATE ***
There are several orders in the queue, so I thought I'd let everyone know the status. In processing order:
1. Erin - 52oz globe, orange/star glitter (testing)
2. Libby - 32oz globe, green/sm non-holo square or sm holo hex; Grande liquid/glitter TBD
3. Mark - Yellow dye for Wizard liquid, testing glitter flakes/dust/squares for Nordic, test solvent dye on China liquid
4. John - 52oz globe green/lg holo sq, 52oz globe blue/lg holo sq, Century globe plugs, 2oz yellow, 2oz red
5. Ben - Consort sm multicolor, 52oz globe green/lg holo sq, 52oz globe blue/lg holo sq
6. Sandy - Grande clear liquid/lg holo square glitter
The queue is either impressive or daunting or possibly both!
I have a couple 52oz globes that I tried to GooKit a while back. I gave up after never being able to achieve any flow. If I empty them of liquid and wax and give a quick clean, would you be able to fill them with fast glitter? I will try to clean them as best I can, but they may need whatever your last cleaning step is... when I tried to fill once myself (with your yellow liquid/strand) I may not have cleaned them well enough despite painstakingly using every solvent and ending with lots of distilled water.
Glad you have solved the color challenge! Looking forward to the dark blue or green!
Nice to hear from you. Feel free to ship me your globes in whatever state you like, and I'll give them a thorough cleaning and fill them for you. Just let me know what you'd like in them.
As far as the queue goes, looks like I may need some help in the glitter lab!
If you didn't live a million miles away, I'd be your helper!!! I've always wanted to be a mad scientist.
