Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate


Hello everyone, I know many of you are on the hunt or know of someone on the hunt for replacement fiber optics for their Fantasia lamp. Look no further!! As you all may or may not know already. I am currently in the process of making replacement glass fiber optic sprays. These will be identical to the original Fantasia sprays. I am overwhelmed with pre-orders and will most likely have a supply and demand issue on my hands at first, so I will do my best to have enough on hand when I begin selling them to go around. The first sprays that will be rolling out will be for the Sunburst 4000 model, Cosmos 5000 model, Regency 4001 model. All previous model Fantasia lamps, Cuda etc will have replacements as I make them available. These I hope to have ready by early to mid summer.

The large fiber optic sprays that will first be available, will be available in two lengths. The first one being a 14" spray that when inserted will hang and display its ends about mid globe on a Sunburst 4000.
The second length spray will be 18" long and is generally seen on the Black Sunburst 4000 model "Egg Shape" But will fit the Chrome and gold model Sunburst 4000 model lamps also.

The Cosmos lamp will need a measurement specific spray tailored for a exact fit within the lamp, essentialy the 14" spray should fit with no problems however I would not mind some feedback on the length of the fiber optic spray from a Cosmos 5000 model. "Measure from the ferrule to the end tips of the fibers, I know multiple sprays were used on the Cosmos, some shorter than others, just reply to this discussion with the measurements, please and thank you! :-)

These fiber optic sprays are in no way easy to make and will be made by hand and not in a factory, the cost of materials, especially the glass fiber optics is a bit pricy, the work and the process that goes into getting a spray fully assembled from start to finish with a haircut takes a bit of time. The price tag on these sprays will be most likely in the neighborhood of $100-125 each, that will be determined when they are made available for sale. I am a quality person and will make the price tag worth it's cost. I know you all know these sprays are not available anywhere unless you purchase another lamp somewhere and snag it's spray for a replacement.

keep your eyes peeled on ebay for these sprays as this will be where I will be hosting them for sale first as where I also have many other Fantasia related replacement parts for sale, color wheels etc. I will also give a heads up to you all on here prior to me listing them on ebay. Reply to this thread to give me an idea of how many "goo members" alone I will be helping out with sprays. I look forward in helping many of you get your vintage Fantasia lamps back!!
As a heads up I WILL NOT be offering "Heat Formed" replacement sprays as the process in doing this is very involved and requires special techniques and equipment I do not have access to, perhaps down the road when the lighting business I am trying to get launched is successfully up and running.

Hi James,

Regards, Christian
He will send you an invoice via email.

Here's the process I used...

Log into your PayPal.  (If you don't have one, you'll have to set one up.)

Up at the top there's a tab option reading "SEND AND REQUEST".  After selecting SEND AND REQUEST, select, "PAY FOR GOODS OR SERVICES".  A screen will open requesting the payee's "EMAIL, MOBILE NUMBER OR NAME".  Enter the email address listed on PyroStar's invoice / PayPal payment instructions.  The next screen will ask for the total invoice amount to be transferred.  There's also a drop-down option for currency... the default shows USD (US DOLLARS).  Open the drop down options and select EUR (Euros).    In the section on the same page reading, "SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO SELLER (OPTIONAL)", I entered the invoice number invoice date, the production description, Model number, and any other pertinent information concerning what the payment is for.  I also asked Mr. Vermond to confirm receipt of the payment, and advise the DHL tracking number once it's available.

Another option is to call PayPal Customer Service at 1 888 221 1161 for assistance.  The PayPal Rep should be able to walk you thru the process.

I hope this is helpful.

Has anyone emailed Wilfred about fibre lamps sprays does not seem to answer

In a March 24th email response to my inquiry, Wilfried Virmond advised he would be on vacation from April 8 through April 30.  He may still be out of the office.  Are you sending your email inquiries to info@pyrofag-leuchten.de  ?   I believe his phoned number is Tel. +49 671 92 00 240

Yes that's where it was sent
Not to say hes not on top of things but lets also not forget that hes retired and does this as a side business. I agree, he may still be on vacation and out of the office.

Friends, I am back at home after my vacation.

Re: Fantasia color wheels: Anyone have any experience with this eBay seller or are they on this forum?

There is a seperate thread on here regarding the color wheels and customer and member purchase experiences. I am actually the one who makes and sells these wheels.
