"And with the way our beloved counterparts across the pond love to run everything at twice the voltage needed would not be a pretty shituation to have a altercation with a high voltage fun toy! Good luck bro, keep us up to date!"
"Have to agree with Mark, you have just created a Poor Man's Reflector Bulb! The proper bulb in there will have the same effect. The reflector not only directs light/ heat up towards the globe but also reduces the heat from around the base…"
Hi Mr MaGoo-Sorry so long to respond, and thanks for your sweet message! How's stuff? I'm fine, jus kinda lost my shine for the lamps after my $$$ ran out. LOL Still waitin' for my ship to come in...heh!
the metallics I had were original mathmos metallics, nothing selfmade. But there seem to be several ways to create metallic wax. One is the sharpie way Dr What came up with (as far as I know) and you just put the contents of a few silver sharpie markers into the wax and the other way would be adding a small amount of the liquid metal motion lamp wax into your wax. They are china brand and they are easily available in the us. They have so much metallic stuff in them that a small amount is enough to end up with the nice metallic surface the mathmos ones had. If you have any questions about mixing, pouring, transfering etc. feel free to ask.
