I'm new here and a newbie collector, but have always had some type of lava since childhood. Searched site and still had a question. Is it possible to still have a cloudy lava lamp arrive via shipping, that is brand new from a know company, or is this never the case and I was mislead?
I've tried melting the wax to get the bubbles out .
What am I doing wrong ?Continue
I have had it several years and don't even remember where I got it from. I fluid was evaporating and I thought maybe I could get it running again. After 3-4 attempts I decided the wax was any good and after the wax stuck to the sides and cleaning it there…Continue
Its quite cloudy. I've been running it a bit and believe it or not it is getting better, Lets see how it looks in a few weeks..
Stumbled upon a cool new desk toy/lamp that some of you may find-a-fancy for! I may have to get behind this project!
1. The lava lamp patent is held by Haggerty Enterprises, Inc. in the United States and by Mathmos in England. This site, Oozing Goo, does not condone making lava lamps for selling or profitting in any other way.
2. The materials in the various formulas listed on this site may be very dangerous. Be careful and excercise proper handling while working with these chemicals. Stick to the…Continue

I have managed to obtain a working Crestworth Galaxy Fiber Optic lamp but would appreciate some advice from someone with experience of workings as it need a little TLC.
Can anyone help with the following:
I have the glass colour wheel but it is broken, any one know how to find a replacement or best way to make one.
What is the best polish for the dome.
Which way should the fan operate, blow up or suck down.
Anyone know of a spare stand or…
Does anyone know what year the Copper Crestworth Astro Mk5 was produced?

Well I must say that this site is quite a surprise to me. Who would have known there was a community of people obsessed by the ooze.
Well I hope to meet some of you guys and what not.
First of all, this is not a guide but notes for my self, that hopefully others might find useful. Stuff you find here might already have been described elsewhere on this site.
First the basics
What makes the lava lamp flow is basically the liquid solution being made correctly for the specific wax your lamp uses. In other words, you might not be able to take one liquid from one lamp,…Continue
Just reposting instructions I like to send sellers when I purchase a lamp that's traveling via USPS etc. I'm posting as originally written by Weebotech. I modify it a bit as per my lamp situation.
I just did a search here to copy it again so thought I'd post for others who have never seen it or hadn't saved.
I am providing this page so that I may receive my purchase in as pristine condition as possible. I know I'm picky with these instructions,…

It's been awhile, but I really could use all the expert opinions that are available here.....Would anyone care to answer a few for me?
First a little back story...
I purchased this Christmas 2015 a Lava Grande from Amazon, in a yellow wax/blue liquid format with silver base and cap. It arrived to me (NEW OUT OF THE SHIPPING BOX) dark and cloudy (the liquid). I am rather upset about this, and the seller REFUSES to admit one sent me a faulty lamp. One has claimed back that I…Continue

I have an all original 1975 Model lamp, I have been messing with the coil and have lost a little liquid out of it. I need to add a couple of ounces but I am not sure what I can add that wont hurt it. I was told mine has different chemicals than newer ones. Any ideas?
