I have a way. You run the lamp once. as it cools down the wax will solidify, if you time it right the wax will be solid inside and goey outside and on the top where most of the bubbles are. Well get the globe and twirl it one way then quickly turn the other way and keep going that way. Repeat this multiple times. You will notice the top of the bubbles pop or the top gets pulled off. Now start up your lamp and see how it is. There will be less bubbles. Do this again and again. If they come back do it more, eventualy they stay gone. Hope this helps you
It is crucial not to shake the wax, just get it to flow on the bottom to get the bubbles to consolidate. I also was able, once they consolidated into just a few large bubbles, to reach down and pop them with a stainless steel skewer to hasten the process.
Hi love the starship grande you have. Wanted to know if you would sale it? If so could you let me know your price? I really just want to top cone and bottom base. Please let me know. PayPal ready if so.
Hi Autumn, from across the pond... sorry to trouble you, but that old "for sale" thread reminded me that you once showed a Glitter Graphic - I'm a private collector and would love to find some! Please advise if you can help? Many thanks, and kind regards, Andy
Sorry, but I dropped the project a long time ago. The there are several different formula on this site you can experiment with though. If you have any questions you can send me a private message. http://www.oozinggoo.com/howto.html
