I was the first to conceive and create a smiley face lava lamp from a McCoy cookie jar I had. My latest custom project is more on the darker side. I took a midnight century and I inserted metal screw on spikes into the starlight holes. I also used chrome rings from a belt to add to the middle part. For the cap, I took a 52oz cap and I adhered some genuine cowhide leather that I cut to fit it, and added some chains from a dog leash for accent. Of course I wanted to go with black lava at first, but too many people report the black dye leaking into the clear water, so I went with purple which I liked as well. Pics below.

The globe is a vintage salad oil dispenser. I just sealed the hole in the top where the oil came out and sealed the lid on. It is 10 inches tall. I bought the oil bottle on e-bay for $3. The lava is just a yellow LW repour with a working coil (coil was bad in the old lamp). I'm rather proud of how it turned out!

How did you do this and where did you obtain that globe?
