Sweet. I'll post it in there.

Erin feel free to post my info. Thanks for letting me know about that thread I will read it.   I think many lamps re-cloud up because the wax has the original liquid embedded in it and it needs to work out of the wax.    A couple runs with "test" liquid might clear the crap out of the wax prior to a final liquid restoration.  Just my two cents.

I'd like to get this information added to my thread here: http://oozinggoo.ning.com/forum/topics/lava-soup-replacing-the-liquid - since so many people attempt to replace the liquid and whatever you've done seems to work! :)

Would you mind putting the info in there? Or I can copy/paste it in there, too.

The blue/red is an incredible color combo, works well.  Does my recipe here go with what you've done with your restorations?  BTW, I'm very new to all this..

Thanks! I've restored the liquid in some older lamps, but not the new ones. I do want to get a blue/red, too.

Thanks Erin.  This came about by chance when I was trying to make an adjustment on the Nightmare lamp you saw.  I had wanted to just add epsom to that lamp so I could get the lava to sink, stay at the bottom so I could empty the liquid again and try to start over and get flow.  What I ended up doing is what I did for this one.  It worked..  For the surf, I just put a few drops in with some distilled water and swished it around the globe to coat the inner glass, then I dumped that. For the epsom, one teaspoon in about 1.5 oz of distilled water.  The water was nuked so it was warm/hot so the epsom crystals could dissolve.  The dishsoap was tricky-- I'd say I poured in about the equivalent of 20 drops. It was just a squeeze about 1/2 second long right into the lamp.  Hope that helps you..

Awesome. Thanks for sharing!

Erin, this was a 'dump and run' thing.  Based on results I got with the NBC lamp.  Rinsed the bottle with goo kti surf and water prior to filling.  Poured in distilled.  Then about 1.5 oz water with 1 tsp espom salt.  A half second squirt of dishwash liquid.  This worked on this one nicely.  Another one I'm trying is not having the same results.

Excellent job! Can you detail how much salt you put in the salt/water mix, how much surf you added and how much dish soap you added? Well done!
