Slip a drinking straw into a can of soda and "capture" a few drops of soda into the end of the straw. Then get gasps from your audience as they see the soda slowly rise up the straw! It really looks impossible and is much easier to do than you might think. And yes, you can even hand out the straw to be examined.
This is one of the most visual revelations Jay has ever created. Reveal the name of a playing card, 'thought of' esp symbol, and almost anything else you can write or draw on the side of a thick rubber band. Wear it on your wrist and you are always READY TO AMAZE.
Cause a borrowed finger ring to melt through two ordinary drinking straws under test conditions. Jay's been performing this mysterious effect in combination with Tarbell's classic "two straws penetration" routine for years. And thanks to the very sneaky method, Exit Strategy is extremely easy to perform.
Chris Randall is a seasoned pro with tremendous experience with the thumb-tip.
He has CONFIDENCE with this wonderful prop, and that is a rarity, even among pros.
Here he will share tips on how to handle the thumbtip naturally, and an amazing effect in which a dollar bill is changed into a poker chip or coin, RIGHT...
Make a sharpie melt through a rubber band in front of the spectator and then have the spectator pull the sharpie and have it melt.
This is magic I have come up with over the years, These are all very hard hitting magic effects.
Chap Wrap: You show a chap stick, then place it into a spectators hand and close it. You then shoot a rubber band into their hand and the rubber band seems to vanish... Just then you ask the spectator to open...
These are very close and interactive magic effects, that I have put together over a few years.
Why these effects work:
They are broken down in a fashion in which the spectator will not be expecting anything.
The effects are executed fast, and hard requiring body-flow and timing... thus they become almost impossible...
The difference between this coin in card is the psychological belief that occurs, and makes the spectators believe the coin appears in the card.
Rise Up is a rising card effect that uses a small gimmick that can be constructed at home with easily available items. It is easy to construct and let's you have full control over the Rise. Stop the Rise at your wish or stop it when the spectators says "stop".
For your consideration:
No thread work
This quick little effect is wonderful for both a close up and a parlour setting as it's not only very open and visible, but Will has constructed it in a way to automatically bring the audience's attention back up to the performer at the end. Not only is it a great trick, but a superb lesson in the design and execution of an effect....
Dcoin is a highly visual miracle done with 3 coins: 1 Bronze and 2 Silver. A perfect four phase routine which involves the idea of coin color changing and sandwiching..
These coins can be borrowed or even signed.
This is pure sleight of hand and requires no set up whatsoever, it is 100% impromptu. Real magic for real world....
This is great way to end and ambitious card routine. It is visual and most of all you don't need to worry about any gimmick or extra piece. EVERYTHING can be examined and it is totally impromptu!
