Now I'm almost ready to start own lava lamp! The perchloroethylene is in my hands!!!! I need some other components like the pure salt - it was ordered and probably will arrive this next monday - and the wax. I'm really filled of expectancy.

Well, I’m a bit (perhaps very disappointed) with this group! No one replied or even commented my last post! It seems like I’m the only crazy guy to propose make a lava lamp in a group that is called Lava Lamp Scientists!!!!! Well I will not quit the idea to make my own lava lamp and to do it I ordered the perchloroetylene, purchased the ethylene glycol, 2 rules and a square - this last was intended to cut and get a small clear plastic sheet - but it looked so pretty and I decide not destroy it! Fortunately I found 2 pieces of a plastic like Plexiglas measuring about 4 x 10 cm close to the dimensions suggested on an article translated from Portuguese to English by me entitled “Making a didactic densimeter”. As you can imagine, the rules are also used on the device. I need purchase some other pieces to build the device and want do it this week. Also I need purchase the wax and the die. Anyway, the day where I will start the experiments is coming soon!

Kindest regards,

João Roberto Gabbardo

Ok guys, on the saturday I removed the ooze from my damaged lava lamp and cleaned the bottle. On the monday I ordered the percloroethilene to make my own lava lamp. After all, to be a true Lava Lamp Scientist one should make something scientific related to lava lamps!!!

As you can expect I want tell my results/conclusions to the rest of the members, .

Kindest regards,

João Roberto Gabbardo

Ok guys! Let’s make a lava lamp with our hands!!!!

Unfortunately I’m somewhat (or too much) distracted man and didn’t saw the Lava Lamp Scientists group before open a new topic at the forum… The idea was just incentive other people to build a lava lamp by themselves and by first I wrote about a text describing how to make cheap and accurate densimeter. Please go to the forum and look the topic Building your lava lamp: how to make the life easier?
If you are interested on the device, please let me know.

Kindest regards,

João Roberto Gabbardo

Ok, I am spending way too much $$$$$ to buy lamps that companies that don't give a darn have made. Plus all they make are limited colors. So, I have resolved to.....(drum roll here please)......make my own lamps!!! I am not exactly sure of the formulas. But some looking at some of the crappy new lamps that I have bought reciently, I wonder, "Could I really do much worse?" So.... I am OFF TO CREATE LAMPS!!!!!!!! Hereeeee I come to save the LAVAAAAA!!!!!

I have become very interested in experimenting with lava formulas. I haven't started yet, but I am very curious, and it would be great to make my own colors combinations. Any suggestions and comments are welcome,
