David Blaine Thread Magic Revealed

This trick was performed very well by David Blaine . The magician is seen to roll some thread into a ball in his fingers . The thread is then placed in his mouth and he appears to swallow it. The magician appears to be in pain , when he bares his stomach and visibly pulls the thread out from it .

Items :
Thread , you will need two pieces of the same coloured thread .
"New skin" latex clear paint for covering cuts and grazes or other brand of latex paint. This liquid paint is normally available from pharmacies .

Method :
You need to paint a one to two inch square area on your stomach with the latex . When it dries you can pull it gently away from the skin to form a pocket .

Place one piece of thread in the pocket , leaving a small piece sticking out .

Cover the latex pocket with make up to match the colour of your skin . The latex pocket can alternatively be made by attaching a piece of skin coloured latex that has been cut from a Halloween mask . This could be attached by using the latex paint as glue .

The performance is done by the magician rolling one of the pieces of thread into a ball and then either pretending to place the thread in his mouth , retaining the thread between his thumb and finger or the thread can be placed between the gum and cheek . Then he pretends to swallow the string .

The rest of the trick depends on acting , the pain enhancing the illusion that the thread has pushed its way through the magicians stomach . The thread can then be pulled from the latex pocket .

It is easy, isn't it? Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
