Where on Earth did you acquire such a device?! And are you saying I should heat the globe with the cap off?
And this is my globe being on for about 30 to 45 minutes with a frosted 40. The one I uncapped and heated.
Well here goes. I got really impatient. I had a little china lamp that you get at 5below it's a local store in jersey. I sacrificed it to the lava gods. I took the cap off removed the coil with a coat hanger, cleaned it. Then dropped it into the lamp I'm trying to fix and centered it inside the other coil. The china coil was smaller than the LavaWorld one. So lets hope this works. Any feelings or input?
Lamp is now flowing gorgeous. I'm so thrilled. My first sucess in breaking the seal of a lava lamp, adding a coil, recapping it and getting it to look beautiful. Thanks sooo much for all the help. Before joining here, I would have just been stuck with a shitty lava lamp and been upset. I'm still searching for coils though. Can anyone help?
