master liquid colour refresh

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

master liquid colour refresh

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) and printer ink (better) to top up fading master fluid colours.I've recently also been looking into building a new PC and it occurred to me, perhaps the dyes designed for liquid cooling systems may be a good choice for lava lamps?  They have UV reactive dyes as well as normal and "no-stain" (they…See More

"Yep I was shocked too.  I'm fairly certain it had said on the website that it may take 2-3 weeks."

MonsoonStorm replied to Jezza's discussion Which io Lunar bottle would you like to see?
"I'm curious, I don't have an io, but I've noticed that the difference in colours between the astro and astrobaby can appear quite significant due to the increased amount of master fluid.  Would a blue/red not appear really quite…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Tom Arthur's's discussion Clear/White Mathmos?
"I’ve stuck my “white” on to give you an idea of how they end up. Please keep in mind this thing is VERY old.  It’s not flowing yet obviously, but it will give you an indication of how they change over the years lamp…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Tom Arthur's's discussion Clear/White Mathmos?
"Yeah, I think it's down to individual preferences. Honestly, I still like my "white" one, but it is most definitely not white any more.  It is really quite old though - it's the old style bottle with a wide cap.  I…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Tom Arthur's's discussion Clear/White Mathmos?
"I guess it depends.  They look absolutely stunning new, but over time they will change colour.   If you are wanting it as an occasional lamp, I'd say go for it.  If you are more like me and have your lamps on all day every…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Jezza's discussion It's time to vote again.
"I would definitely love to see the clear bottle switch to a less dismal colour.  If they are trying to corner the "moody teenager" market they could do red/black(plum) and stick a more jovial colour in the clear liquid for the rest of…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Jezza's discussion It's time to vote again.
"In a way I get it to be honest,  I'm guessing there is more value for them this way or they wouldn't have made the switch in the middle of a promotional period. I suppose in a way the enthusiasts may well end up being the ones they…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Jezza's discussion It's time to vote again.
"Seems it's 39, so they got an increase of 2euros too. I had word back from Mathmos, they are essentially saying that last year's special fill was £39, so they reduced it to £32 and removed the discount to make it more…"

MonsoonStorm replied to Jezza's discussion It's time to vote again.
"I've had confirmation back from Mathmos that this is indeed intentional. I've pointed out that this means that a) the Astrobaby limited edition ended up costing less than the Astro limited edition b) it means that the bottles are in…"

"Quick addendum,  I tried adding another bottle just to see what would happen.  Gut feeling is that this is intentional:"

"Yeah I was looking to buy 4, but I won't be if there's no discount as they were also purely for myself. It seems REALLY cheeky to both bump the price for this bottle AND remove the discount.  Why on earth a limited edition astrobaby…"
