Started Jun 6 0 Replies

One of my globes (Mathmos) is turning quite faded and I'd been pondering trying to refresh the colour of the master fluid a bit.  I've seen the odd post about people using food colouring (not great)…Continue

"I would like to see a shift away from the "space" theme personally.  Not everything needs to be rocket-esque! I'd love to see a bit more elegance and refinement, something more contemporary, or even something more…"

"I agree, it really is a lovely finish.  I was pleasantly surprised. And, yep, I would also love to see a neo in this finish.  It would look fantastic."

"My black telstar arrived today, I somehow ended up with a Fisrt 100 which surprised me given how late I ordered (#82) It's quite lovely, whilst I was expecting the same black as the Vinyl, it's actually the same polished gunmetal type…"

"I'm another one who never bothers with the screw on the Neo.  The top slots in to the base and is secure enough, so there's nothing to worry about unless it's in constant danger of being knocked over"

"Loving the black, just ordered one!  Unlikely to get one of the first 100 at this time I would imagine, but that's ok. This will be my first telstar!  The silver ones never really appealed to me,  I loved the black/copper, but…"

"I actually don't mind it to be honest, it's something a bit different, and when it heats up properly you can see even smaller tiny particles suspended in a clearer wax, it's kinda cool to see the currents within the wax."

"Ah, the incredible majority of people don't have aircon in the UK.  Honestly, where I live (North) there's not a huge amount of "summer" lol, anything above 25C (77F) is cause for celebration, anything above 30C (86F) is…"

"I do have a couple of the candle powered ones, Mathmos sell them.  It is an alright solution and they do heat up much quicker, they give off pretty much no light though and you're supposed to let them cool down after 4 hrs as they do run…"
