Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Drove out of state for my first USA Giant after looking for ages- someone’s old college lamp - dated May 1999 - just simmered and seethed like a witch’s cauldron for the first 3 weeks with no action. Thought it was toast since I was running it between 8-16 hours and nothing but the odd tiny bubble. Almost gave up but tonight the Giant sprung to life for the first time in years after almost 7 hours! Missing the cap so I sacrificed a silver Grande top and pained it black. Classic lava flow!

Gotta love that Giant flow! Looks like it was once a blue/yellow. Are you going to leave it as-is or re-dye the liquid?

Now that you mention it I did switch the bulb out and it was sitting next to the fireplace for the last week. Maybe it got frozen at some point sitting in a garage or something. The base was pretty dinged up too. The wax had a lunar crater look the time before it worked for the first time. Love the giant!

Beautiful Giant!!

Could there have been an ambient temperature issue keeping the lamp from flowing?

Now, I would love to know how it really wasn't do much and then just started working right after 3 weeks? Cool though.
