Practicing your sleight of hand is important for the close up worker. There are a lot of sleights and

handlings out there and you have to pick a select few that work for you.

The best way I found to practice my sleight of hand is in front of a mirror and to practice the trick

Borrow a quarter from a spectator. Next place it between you thumb and first finger. In plain sight of the spectator the whole time, you start to bend the quarter. You bend it so far that the coin is folded in half.

How do you make the illusion real?

Posted by rhmagic in Misc , Illusion

To me magic is doing something extraordinary with a borrowed object. It's making the impossible possible. Doing the unexpected. Magic is creating the illusions using your imagination.

How do you make the illusion real? 

Well, we tell a stories and make the spectator's mind wonder.

Card Control: Practical Methods and Forty Original Card Experiments

Practical Methods and Forty Original Card Experiments

A famous card expert demonstrates tricks that have left theater audiences amazed, and that card-playing professionals have used profitably. It is not a book for beginners. But these shifts, palms, glides, false shuffles, cuts, fans, steals and spectacular deceptions will help those with basic card expertise reach new levels of performance. Over 300 photos show Buckley's exact hand positions during each move.

Pretty good book with a variety of unique card sleights (palming, manipulating cards in the deck, etc.). These sleights are the 'real work', so it will take a little perseverance. Many of these utility sleights are ones that you ought to know if you want to be a card sleight-of-hand worker.

Stage Fright

Posted by rhmagic in Performance

rhmagic

Stage fright is one of the most crippling disorders a magician can face. After all we have to perform in front of people or worse yet, STRANGERS.

As a person who suffers from stage fright, It took me a while to learn how to over come it. I would try every bit of advice someone told me. Of course nothing worked.

I am a people person. I can strike up conversations with just about anyone. I can act silly and let them take me or leave me. Talking to people is not a problem for me.

Cigarette magic explained

The Anti-Gravity Cigarette.

A cigarette is laid on the table so that about two-thirds of it protrudes over the edge. Yet the cigarette does not fall.

There are two methods of performing this trick. The first requires a prepared cigarette. A bit of metal is hidden in one end of the cigarette, and as that end is much heavier than the other, the cigarette can easily be set so that it apparently overbalances the table edge.

Armed with a thumb tip and the knowledge to use it, your opportunities for performing magic tricks are nearly limitless.

You can perform impromptu tricks such as:

  • The cigarette Vanish
  • The salt trick
  • Coin Vanishes
  • The disappearing silk
  • An Even Sweeter Seal (coin into sugar pack illusion) One of my own tricks I came up with for use of the thumb tip.
  • The bill switch
  • Smokin Another one of mine.
