Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi,

since the first Living Jewel lamp I got, I have the project to make one big Living Jewel bottle for my Lunar.

I don't know if it was done before, but there will be some difficulties to do one.

So if you can help me, thank you.

1-First I have to find at least 6 bottles (I've got 3 now, but I want to keep 2 of them, so only 1 available right now for my project, if you've got one to sell, let me know please)

2-How to open them? The cap is sealed with glue (what kind?).

Is it safe to heat the bottle with boiling water like I do for "normal" bottles?

3-Anyone has got any idea how to pour the liquid in the Lunar in a way to minimise vaporisation of the liquid? (wind is no good, so it may be better to do it inside, even it's toxic)

4- How to pefectly seal the bottle when it's full?

The seal must be solvent proof.

5- What bulb to use on the Lunar?

A normal Living Jewel bottle runs great on 15w bulb, and the max advised power to use is 25w (I saw one running with a 30w bulb)

In a big 4.5l Lunar bottle, what do you think will be the best bulb? (

Hot enough to run the lamp fast, but not too hot to avoid risks of breaking the lamp.

By the way, I think Arne said something about a Lunar Bottle who had blow away, anyone heard about this?

Again, if you can help in any way (advices, bottles) you're welcome.

I really want to make this Living Jewel Lunar.

Thank you.

I've just heard from someone who made one bottle with fast glitter from Wizard.

I'm waiting for his advices. I think there is the same issues with fast glitter whatever where it come from.

Hi Astralav, I can understand you and hope we will see your Lunar-Bottle verry soon. What colour you will make?

Thanks!

If you talk about the bottom paint, I don't know yet, I think I will try what Johnny as suggested on another topic (using marker felt pen, so it's easy to change color).

If you talk about the liquid, I'll leave it clear (one of mine is a little yellow, so I don't know what I will find.)

I wouldn't paint the bottom, you can use a colour filer, which you can make by yourself! I made some from 3mm fireproof glass and painted it with Marabu glass colour! So you can change verry fast!
Look to my fotos! There is a filter

Yes, that's looking great!

I may contact you for this, when the bottle will be done.

A long time will pass until then, I'm afraid :-)

I'd use a ceramic heater for reptiles and colour changin led's.

I'd rather go old school on this one.

Like it was produced at the time by Crestworth :-)

then you should go for a three stripe colouring of the bottom...no doubt...and lucky you, there are actually a few lunars with crestworth sticker out there...had one once.

That is the plan :-)

Yes I saw one sticker like this on picture.

Tell us about it,,,

btw, I dont think evaporation during the transfer is a problem and if you heat it really well just once and then glue on the cap you wont risk to blow the bottle...if it brakes due to clumsieness you're screwed though...instant cancer lol...for sure!
