...unfortunately it was the Lava Lite formula circa 2007.
I somehow took a medium foggy green/clear, put it through the filter (twice), and added purple food coloring to some blue tinted water.
I don't know HOW the heck adding purple food coloring to the filtered water led to this, but once it was on the bulb for awhile the green color seemed to somehow seep out of the wax itself and into the water. I ran a bit of ethyl alcohol through the filter in a lazy attempt to clean the filter without taking it apart - that may have a mistake.
Anyway, in the final shot below you can barely even pinpoint where the lava ends and the water begins:
I actually have some semi-success stories to tell as well, but I though I'd post these pics first of my most disastrous lamp restoration to date.
Next time I'll tell you the deep dark secret about Lava Lite's 52oz black and orange lamp.
