***WARNING*** THIS EFFECT IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! DO NOT PERFORM IT! IF YOU DO, WE CAN, IN NO WAY, BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INJURIES THAT OCCUR AS A RESULT OF IT!


THE MAGICIAN DEMONSTRATES VOODOO BY DRAWING THE OUTLINE OF A HAND ON A PIECE OF PAPER. HE THEN ASKS THE SPECTATOR TO DRAW FIRE ON ANY OF THE FINGERS OF THE HAND. AFTER THIS IS DONE, THE MAGICIANS HAND BEGINS TO FEEL AS IF IT’S ON FIRE, AND HE THEN TURNS HIS HAND OVER TO SHOW A BLISTER ON THE EXACT SAME FINGER THE SPECTATOR DREW FIRE ON! THEN, COMMENTING ON HOW VOODOO WORKS "BOTH WAYS", THE MAGICIAN HOLDS A LIGHTER’S FLAME UP TO HIS OWN HAND, AND SUDDENLY THE PIECE OF PAPER (WHICH HAS BEEN LAYING ON THE FLOOR THE ENTIRE TIME) BURSTS INTO FLAME!!!

 


TO PERFORM THIS EFFECT, THE ONLY PREPARATION YOU NEED IS TO HAVE A SINGLE, STRIKE ANYWHERE MATCH IN ONE OF YOUR POCKETS, A COMMON WASHER IN ANOTHER POCKET, AND HAVE A PIECE OF PAPER AND A PENCIL TO WRITE WITH. FIRST, HAVE THE SPECTATOR DRAW THE OUTLINE OF YOUR HAND ON THE PIECE OF PAPER, AND THEN, COMMENTING ON VOODOO, YOU ASK THE SPECTATOR TO DRAW A FLAME ON ONE OF THE FINGERS. AS SOON AS YOU SEE WHICH FINGER THEY’RE DRAWING THE FLAME ON,  CASUALLY REACH IN YOUR POCKET AND PRESS THE TIP OF THAT SAME FINGER AGAINST THE HOLE OF THE WASHER. THIS WILL CREATE A TEMPORARY INDENTION THAT LOOKS LIKE A REAL BLISTER. AS THEY’RE DRAWING THE FLAME, ACT AS IF YOUR HAND IS BURNING, AND THEN SHOW THEM THE BLISTER. THEN, WITH THE OTHER HAND, OBTAIN THE MATCH FROM YOUR POCKET, AND PUT IT INTO A PALMED POSITION. WITH THE HAND THAT IS PALMING THE MATCH, REACH OVER AND TAKE THE PAPER FROM THE SPECTATOR, AND LAY IT ON THE GROUND. AS YOU DO THIS, SIMPLY PLACE THE MATCH UNDER THE PAPER, AND TOWARDS THE END CLOSEST TO YOU. NOW, AS YOU COMMENT ON H0W VOODOO WORKS "BOTH WAYS" CASUALLY SCRAPE YOUR SHOE AGAINST THE SECTION OF THE PAPER THAT HAS THE MATCH UNDER IT, AND TAKE A STEP BACK. QUICKLY (AS THE PAPER WILL BEGIN TO BURN SOON), REMOVE A LIGHTER FROM YOUR POCKET AND ACT AS IF YOU’RE BURNING YOUR HAND. AS YOU’RE DOING THIS, THE PAPER THAT IS LAYING ON THE GROUND WILL BEGIN TO BURN TOO! THIS LOOKS
AMAZING!!!
