Slinky mermaid figure, that moves around, with hair swirling, amongst the gently rising and sinking blobs of melted wax, inside your lava lamp.

Baking soda Submarines http://www.torgo.org/bpsubs/
they still make them ! Why go nuclear when you just use baking soda ? [xenzag, Feb 27 2007]

       My girlfriend is a mermaid. Not sure she herself would enjoy swimming in melted wax, but she'd like this ornament. [+]   

       For those with more macabre tastes, you could make it a normal figure, looking like a drowning person.

       How about a little Pompeian girl?

       I'd buy the hippie version first, actually.

       Reminiscent of the popular elementary school science fair demonstration "cartesian diver" - which sinks or floats based on external pressure. [link]

       The littlest magmaid.   

       I can remember our old lemonade bottles having a large screw top stopper, which sealed in place with a red elastic ring. You could buy a toy diver, which you placed in the bottle filled with water. When you screwed down the stopper he sank, and when it was relaxed he rose up. I also seem to recall a diver with a cavity that you had to fill with a tiny amount of baking soda to make him work,....

       Ahh... the baking soda divers. I had a submarine like that, and got hours of diving-surfacing-scaring the hell out of my fish-enjoyment when I discovered that i could operate it without the baking soda if I just let the bubbles in my aerating aquarium power filter stick onto it.
