Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

New goo kit on my Grand. Had to add epsom salts to get it to act right, as without it would only make a high dome that would burp out little balls. Used MagmaTower surf exclusively, at the rec. rate of 10ml/qt. Did use distilled this time, jus for grins...

Thanks, Todd!  You know, I'm really bad about being not very scientific in my approach to my lamps, which is why I have to say, I really don't know.  Sorry!  But, I can tell you how I did it...I filled an 8oz. bottle about 1/3 of the way up with epsom salts, then the rest of the way up with super hot water.  Put the lid on and shook it till it dissolved, then I'd say I gave 3 or 4 quick pours from that bottle straight into the operating lamp.  I measured for ya, and I'd say one of my "pours" equals about a tablespoon.  I never really get too worried about the salt quantity since I can always remove liquid and replace with water if I get too much.  And indeed, I did exactly that with this lamp...ended up siphoning out about 2 cups of liquid then refilled with my surf/distilled water solution.  It made a huge difference, as without the salt the show was just sad little one inch balls from a quite unattractive pointy dome at the bottom...never had one turn out quite like that before...

Thanks Keith & Critter!  Critter, I was planning for it to be yellow, but it looks so good with the colors of my room, I'm jus going to leave it white.  For now.  lol

Nice! White looks great to me, but do you plan to dye it?
