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.

Kirk, you did an amazing job with the two globes I provided. Glad I paid you extra because you're really good at this! My old lamps are beautiful again :) I'll definitely be asking you to do business in the future :D maybe a grande next time?
What I love about this combination is that the mass of small multi-coloured sparkles is on a fast, but very uniform circular rotation....within the circular windows :)
Always a counterclockwise rotation though....I wonder weird glitter science determines that?
Definitely one of my favorite lamps now. Will have to post a video one day.
That seriously is one awesome lamp!! You know, the small glitter is starting to grow on me more and more.
Another French lamp.
Clear fluid, and loaded with silver sequin flakes (with the odd coloured one mixed in) which provide a very dense effect when lit. It's beautiful.
The fluid was all there, but the sequins collapsed after a few minutes use.
Swapped about one third of the fluid over with Kirk's fluid and it's now running 100%
I think it was designed to run with a 25w bulb, but it runs perfectly well on a 15w pygmy bulb, and the base remains much cooler.
is it October yet
I'm traveling to the Pacific Northwest -- Olympic National Park, Victoria, BC, Seattle, Oregon, Redwood National Park, Yosemite National Park and back to Texas: 9/30 -10/18. I'll be ready for business when I get home.
safe travels, kirk!
Great Scenery-Enjoy the stunning views
