Powder Pigment wax dye

Does anyone have any experience with using powder pigments?I seem to recall reading somewhere that Haggerty used powder pigments from Crayola.The reason I ask, is that I've seen a few "interesting" colors and was wondering if it's worth the time to pursue further and how these powder transfer from the candlemaking industry to lava lamps applications. Not so much interested in Mica due to separation issues.Thinking out loud,.. Has anyone used a chemical to pre-mix them in order to enhance…See More

Thanks Claude,

What I need to find out, is where to purchase a Goo-Kit . Magma Tower is closed down in terms of being able to order anything online, from them, due to Cov19.

I have a large "Grand" 26 inch lava lamp that I want to refurbish with new wax.

I think a nice Neon Color would be what to put inside of it, for "Goo".

I collect Lava lamps , and at one point was up to about 10 or 12 of them.

I now have 2 "Grands",  and some smaller normal size ones, that I run.

A tip for you, for running or operating a Grand, is to take the box it is in, and insulate

the box with yellow or pink fiber glass insulation.  You can then at the end of the day

switch off the "Grand" lava lamp, and remove the bottle and put it into this insulated

cardboard container , overnight.  The next day, "Start up" will only take maybe 15 or 20

minutes of time, and not the full 6 or 8 hours from room temp, to get the wax flowing.

Thanks for your help , on this , and any other information you would like to share with

me about your own experiences using and owning Lava lamps!

Cheers!

Tom
