This is the small box. This came with the original box. It has 10 lamps, each 23 volts. This set had also clear lamps, so I dipped them in single coat colored glass lacquer, looks much nicer this way.

Cool lights. And I like the colors too...basically looks like they were made that way.
I don't know if such a thing as that colored glass lacquer exists here, but sounds like something like that could be used to re-color faded bulbs?

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Yes, colored clear glass lacquer egsists and you can buy it at any art store, but the catch is, it is for coloring clear glass, to make stained glass. It is not designed for coloring lamps. Yes, you can use it on Christmas lights, because they only get look warm, but if you, fir example, coat C9 Christmas lights, that get as hot as normal incandescent lamp, it will start producing very sickening odor and after a few hours it will darken and start peeling off. I learned that when I coated a 15w 220 pigmy lamp and after 20 minutes the room smelled like rotten snails and the blue became snot green. For small lamps, like Christmas lights, it is perfect, it stays perfect, no odors, no color changing. Basically, go to an art store and ask for stained glass lacquer.

I once saw on ebay an assorted case of 8 colors, small bottles of special lamp lacquer, the same one that they use in factories to triple dip the mini lights and C size lamps. It is heat resistant and is odorless. But it was 40 dollars or so, and the bottles were the size of nail polish bottles, so you couldn't dip larger lamps, only mini lights. I will upload a picture of the stained glass lacquer that I am using, It is made in France, and I think you could find it in USA pretty easily too. Buy it and test it. Just remember that hot lamps will not work with it, just Christmas lights, such as mini lights, mini ball lights, candle lights, you know, low voltage stuff, because it doesn't get hot.

Go to my Random Homemade Projects folder and you will see it there

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

@vytautas_lamps:
I was thinking of it for mini lights! ..that and LEDs is mostly what I use.
There's a few hobby stores around here that have art supplies, I'll have to try to remember to look next time I'm in one..
