    My lava lamp (the modern version of the original unit) has "lava" that seems to harden when cold, like wax. Does anyone know what ingredients the original lava lamps use?

    Fun! So do you just shake it up when you want to see the colored oil move around?

    Those are cute :) This would make a great kids' craft!
