Liquid Wheel (Cosmic Flare)
Bossed or magnetic?
Effect wheels have either a bossed or magnetic fitting - please be sure to choose the right type. You may need the Magnetic Wheel Rotator Adaptor to fit a magnetic wheel. Click here for more information.
Handle with care!
Liquid wheels are VERY fragile. Please handle, fit and store them with great care. Don't let children handle these glass items.
The original psychedelic lighting effect!
OPTI Liquid wheels comprise three layers of glass sealed around the edge with different immiscible coloured oils in two separate layers. As the wheel rotates, the oils move around to provide a constantly changing colourful display.
For use with all OPTI projectors. Also suitable for some other effect projectors which accept a 6" wheel (use the ‘bossed’ wheels for the Martin Mania DC-3). If you’re using an OPTI Solar projector, a Variable Speed Wheel Rotator is recommended as adjusting the speed even slightly can make a real difference to the effect achieved from a Liquid Wheel.
Please note: Liquid wheels are made by hand and no two are the same. The colours, fill, behaviour and appearance of each wheel will vary. Small artefacts can also appear in the oil occasionally – this is to be expected. Please handle with great care – the glass is very fragile!
