DIYers- what kind of bottle capper do you own?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nate Mar 9, 2021. 14 Replies

I have a couple crappy modern spencers lamps that aren't worth turning on anymore, and I want to use them for experimentation.  Problem is, I have no idea how I would reseal it without a bottle…Continue

In my quest to figure out exactly what the original formula is, one thing I haven't figured out is why they used Kerosene in the mixture.  It seems like it was a very small part of the mixture,…Continue

This was the very first lamp I had as a kid- and being a really dumb kid I decided one day to open it and "add more lava to it" by putting... candle wax... in it.  This is the only pic I can find…Continue

"     Finished my simplest lava lamp, by using just wax, perc, liquid paraffin and resin die, as it was my main goal. I like to work with mass because it is invariant like volume, and below there's my recipe (in percentages of…"

"Holy wowzers! I’ve had a hypothesis that oil based paints may be helpful in coloring/solidifying goo. Dang! Now I’m going to try this.  Looks great! "

"@Jsmooth, this is a very, very early formula and wasn't nearly as opaque as what it looks like in the picture.In my newer formulations, I use a tiny dab of white oil based paint, the kind artists get in tubes.  Works wonders"

"Ok, I'm intrigued.  * What kind of vinegar?  White vinegar?  Apple cider vinegar?* How has it held up over a few runs?* Have you noticed any cloudiness in the fluid or other effects?"

"i did not add any SLS. i ordered a bottle of it last week but it hasn't arrived yet. after i receive it i will add a drop or two and see if it helps."

Mr T replied to Ant Bee's discussion Trying to crack the original formula- why was kerosene used?
"Did you put any SLS in the water.  This will make the lava flow more snake like.  Just use a few drops in the water and see how the wax flows.  Don't add too much otherwise the wax will become too runny.  "

"It is nice. I think the amount of wax in the bottle is less. Double it. I put 180 grams of wax in a 75cl bottle."

tim replied to Ant Bee's discussion Trying to crack the original formula- why was kerosene used?
"that's going to be really difficult to do, i find it's much easier to just make the wax denser than the water by adding more perc and then adjusting the water until it's perfect. i believe liquid paraffin and kerosene are supposed to…"

"hi everyone, this is an awesome thread! lots of good information. i made a lava lamp using paraffin wax, liquid paraffin, petroleum jelly, and perc. it works in that the wax does move up and down but it just breaks into a big blob or two and…"

"I just made a batch with LP so we'll see how it goes. The last batch leeched the perc. (didn't have any LP in that batch)"
