Hi! I've been lurking for a little while since I broke my lava lamp about 6 months ago. I've been learning a lot. Mostly what not to do. Anyways, I've been casually looking around for how to make my own goo. I know that gookits are the best way to do it, but they've been out of stock for quite some time, and I'm in a country where the shipping is rather expensive. While looking around, I keep coming across allusions to the recipe for Retro Basic, but the link to where it's located doesn't work. (it's here: http://www.oozinggoo.com/howto.html ). Where can I find this recipe, or another one of similar quality? Is there a reason it's been removed from the site?
Thanks for welcoming me into your group!
Lets be honest here...if there were a recipe for DYI lava lamps everyone here would have had the recipe years ago or as soon as someone cracked the code. In all the years of being a member no one - no one has perfected the LAVA LITE formulation here on oozing goo. Simple as that. My advice to you...buy a cheap used lamp and swap the contents with the globe you want to fill saving yourself a lot of headaches , time and money. Just make sure the used or new globe actually works before buying. Swapping contents is fun and easy. Give it a whirl then again you say you broke the lamp so why the need for lava if you have nothing to put it in? Did I miss something ? Good luck.
Yes! I never even thought of using the wayback machine! This is exactly what I was looking for!
