Yep! Gonna get questionably gloopy!
Seriously, Don't try this at home. Only use chemicals in ways they're meant to be used. Be good :)

I got hold of a 'dis-functioning' lavalamp (cloudy and not rising). I emptied the bottle and separated the paraffin from the liquid. Re-melted all the paraffin and returned it to the liquid. When I turn off the lava-lamp I remove the lamp from the base and put it on a cool surface to accelerate the cooling off period. This prevents the paraffin from mixing with the liquid. Have been using it for 10 years without problems.

I'll toss out an odd idea of why your water got cloudy while using certain pigments. I spent many years mixing water-based inks for use in the screen printing world. I would make inks using concentrated pigments, binders, softeners , a very large homogenizer and something we called concentrate. Concentrate was the thickening agent that gave the ink it's printable consistency. The concentrate we used was an ammonia based product that thickened the mixture into a consistency that wouldn't fall through the mesh of our screens. The downfall of this concentrate was that it could be broken down with salt. Leftover inks would be homogenized with pellet salt to break it's consistency back to a liquid state. This meant that the pigment was no longer held in a solution with the pigment binder. There is a different version of the ammonia concentrate that we used during discharge printing (prints that needed a zinc formaldehyde sulfate additive, I.E salt in the ink) mix) and the solution was a gum arabic thickening agent. This natural thickening agent didn't not suffer the issue of salt breakdown and could be used without issue for holding pigments in solution. I'm not sure if I'm right, but it sounds like a similar issue. I assume your brine solution broke down the pigments in your paint and dispersed the concentrate that held the pigments in solution.

I enjoyed this video and hearing your journey with lava lamps. Perhaps even more enjoyable were the outtakes at the end. Your personality really shines here and there were moments from the outtakes that would make your videos even better. Your real reactions to mistakes are endearing and allow the audience to be in on the fun with you. You certainly don't need the subscriptions but it was nice to see who you are outside of your meticulously planned script. :-)

so something about oil paint, a lot of oil paint pigments are traditionally metal based and very heavy where as cheaper nonmetalic imitations are around now too. The density of the metalic pigment might be causing it to sink to the bottom of the wax and the less dense material might help, but also maybe the linseed oil has a diferent thermal expansion rate that is messing with it also.

No, you are not gonna trigger an environmental disaster with one bottle of break clean.

I might be late to the party, but consider heavy liquids. I'm not sure if they are truly commercial available but the more modern chemicals are considered non-toxic and some are non-water soluble. For example, benzyl benzoate is sold outside of the US as a topical scabies treatment and I believe also used as a matrix chemical in coloring dyes to help incorporate non-soluble dyes in oil paints.

Ok, here's an idea. Melt the wax in the bottle. Put the bottle into the double boiler wish a rag (or canning rack) at the bottom so the glass isn't in direct contact with the metal. Drop in your spring and then add chunks of wax to the bottle and then bring the double boiler to temperature. Get the wax melted, take it off of the heat, and THEN add the brake cleaner. I wouldn't add the cleaner while still on heat because you don't want to evaporate the cleaner, you want it to mix in and as the bottle cools anything in the air inside the bottle should start to condense on the walls of the bottle and fall down into the mix. I would use some sort of rubber stopper or self-sealing cap on the bottle and still inject the cleaner so that you don't have brake cleaner fumes rush out and get you high, but this way you can now swirl the wax around and get the brake cleaner to mix evenly with it before adding the water and without having to deal with open containers of this stuff. Just wrap it in a towel and swirl it around until it starts to solidify. Shaking it would probably work, too, but might coat the inside of your bottle with wax that might take a while to melt off. Swirling it around with the spring at the bottom will probably be enough to whisk it together, though. You might also try adding the pigment to the brake cleaner before mixing it into the wax. This might help get a more consistent color and also might even help the cleaner to mix evenly into the wax. Im imaging that the pigment + brake cleaner mix will work a bit like funky roux for your lava gravy. Then you can put your bottle over a lamp and wait to see if it melts under incandescent temperatures, put back in double boiler and add more cleaner if needed. Once the consistency seems right, then add your water, cap, and then put on your Pink Floyd and take your mollyacid, you goddamned hippy. Get a job cut and a real hair, pinko.

For the density additive, you would likely need a halogenated hydrocarbon. A hydrocarbon with only hydrogen and carbon is quite unlikely to reach the density required. Putting in things like oxygen and nitrogen will make it polar and dissolve in the water. So the only real option is putting a halogen onto it. And in general, iodine is denser than bromine, which is denser than chlorine. Bromobenzene has a solubility of 0.04% in water, and a density of 1.5 g/ml, and a a vapour pressure of 4.18 mm Hg (at least according to wiki). 1,4-dibromobenzene (or p-dibromobenzene) is even less soluble in water and even more dense (1.84 g/ml) and while I can't find its vapour pressure it is likely to be much lower than water. However it is a solid at room temp. However I'm not sure of the solubility of them in parafin wax. As they are non-polar they are likely soluble in it.

Today's lamps most likely contain a mix of isopropanol and ethylene glycol as well as water. Basically, instead of increasing the density of the wax, they decrease the density of the liquid. These substances are pretty harmless unless you drink them. But why would you ever do this? Older models did in fact contain perchloromethane (or perchloroethylene) however they stopped using it in the 70s due to health concerns.
