"Are you sure it's hot enough?  it may just be that your bulb needs replacing.  They tend to start stringy when they are warming up then eventually shift to breaking into blobs"

"if there's one or two legs that are causing the isue it may be worth sanding them down a little rather than trying to prop them, just a thought. The sticker doesn't look astounding, but I kinda get why they went with it, part of the whole…"

"I believe it is flat (like the centre of a record would be).  There are no ridges showing through on the sticker. Yeah, given that they do first 100 runs on a semi-regular basis, you'd think it would be feasible for them to knock up some…"

"Mine arrived! I ended up with a first 100, #23 It's really quite lovely.  The cord is quite thick and stiff so it did take a little bending to get in to place.  It's a shame they don't stamp the first 100 on rather than use…"

"I grabbed one, I also had basket issues but the receipt I got said 11:01 - no idea how accurate that is though, it felt longer. It's the first time I've ordered something on release so I've no idea how fast the first 100 go."

"I too was hoping for something new, or at least something to expand the astrobaby or telstar ranges. Astro already has a few variations, I've been wanting an astrobaby but I don't want plain shiny silver."

"Hrm torn… I love my current matt blacks, but my first thought is “dust….”, that’s a lot of grooves for it to get in to! I will get one of course, I’m just not sure I can see it replacing my usual matt blacks"

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
