Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Well, I am going to give this another go. My first few attempts at reproducing these replacement sprays for the Fantasia lamps has been nothing but a nightmare! The process is lengthly and the art at shaping these is.....well....an art. There is no easy way of trimming them and that is where my road block has been from getting them rolled out for sale. That and this obnoxious "Slean coating" that was applied to the fibers during the manufacturing process. Apparently they coat the fibers in this coating to prevent them from "Fanning Out" during the spooling process.....welllll I kinda need them to do exactally that! "Fan Out" so I apparently need to soak the spray first in an alcohol solution to breakdown and remove this coating before I can attempt to trim them. I was doing this step before, I am just letting you all know the involvement of the process. So I contacted the sales rep where I got the fibers and he said that they can do a run of the fiber without this coating (slaps head and sighs) I said are you kidding me! I wish I had known that before hand..lol. Oh well, live and learn and this is surely a learning process.


I do have a new trimming stand that I will be able to work better around so I am hoping that will help. The spray you see soaking in alcohol is the super long 17" spray commonly seen on the Black Sunburst 4000 models....I will keep this updated as to all of the progress and even a short video on trimming these sprays so you can all see just how tedious this process is. I hope to have these for sale soon for those of you interested in purchasing a replacement spray, I apologize for any delays in getting these rolled out! Thank you all for your patience :-)

jmpenny32... can i please get on your list to get a replacement spray?? my original one seems to keep 'shedding' its fibers... please keep me posted.. thanks

Hi. Hope the spray making is going well!
I was wondering if you do sprays for Centurion...even if it looks more like a Sunburst spray...that would work for me.
I still need to get a motor for my Black Sunburst sometime.
Also, the motor I need for my old fiber optic mushroom is a
AC 6V 50/60 Hz 1.5-2W
5/6 r/min CW/CCW
If you have an idea on where to get one.
If you would, send me a message on prices for these things...when you have some spare time.
Thanks so much!

Oh, also,do you do color wheels for Fantasia Galaxies?

Thanks again!

Did I miss out on getting getting one f the Fantasia lamp sprays??
Bernie, yes I'm afraid so. It was a very expensive & dangerous process and despite all of that you need a hair stylist willing to trim the sprays for a perfect cut that are not scared of the fibers. If I had a better work environment etc I may have stayed working on the project.

Im interested in one
