The Effect:
A male volunteer places his wallet, watch and a coin on the table. Turning your back, you invite him to place each of those objects into his front left and right and one of his back trouser pockets.

Turn around and explain that through subtle use of body language, you can determine which object was placed in which pocket. After looking him up and down for a while, you correctly name the location of each object,

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

Razor Blade Illusion?

Posted by Houdinii in Tutorial , Illusion , General

I've searched everywhere! I can't find a tutorial or figuer out how it's done! Could someone please tell me how the magician "swallows" the blades and string and pulls the string out with the blades attached? I'm willing to trade if needed...

I absolutely need someone who can teach me Paul Potassy's "razor blade trick". In this trick the magician swallows razor blades and thread and bring it all back up, strung together.

Please! ^^

Crushing a coin with 2 fingers

Posted by rhmagic in Tutorial , Street Magic , Performance , General , Coin , CloseUp , Bar Tricks



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.

Linking Rings

Posted by MoriVictus in General

I'm absolutely stunned at the prices most people pay for linking rings; $20 for four steel loops!? Highway robbery. But then it occurred to me how painfully simple it is to make them for yourself. Any craft store of any decent size has steel rings in the leatherworks section (people use them for dream catchers), so all you have to do is buy a little packet of rings, slice a hole through one with a bolt cutter or a pair of heavy wire cutters, give it a bend to widen the gap to where you need it (it's unnoticeable), and file off any nasty edges. For all intents and purposes, they're just as good as any set of stainless steel rings you'd buy at any magic shop (and much better than that aluminium set most starter magicians settle for), and I only spent $4 for a set of four 8" rings and a set of six 4" rings. This may seem like common sense, but I am amazed at the ability of people to overlook the simplest of solutions (hence the fact that we conjurers fool people with relative ease, given a little practice), so I thought I'd share this somewhat common sense revelation so that you can save your coins for palming. Chung Ling Soo (master of linking rings who needs little introduction in a community of magicians) said that part of being a master conjurer is knowing how to make your own trick props. Happy linking, folks.

Brave to be a performed

Posted by magictawau in General

Magic performance can be perfect if your brave to perform. If you scared, be wary and afraid, your magic perform can be in disorder. On the strengh of my exprience, i can scraped to be wary and afraid be face with spectator. I admit, its to hard perform with many spectator. Not every one can performance like me. Before your perform your magic, you examined your magic prop. Try and test every magic kit. Make your performance happy and cheerful. Communicated with spectator with smile and joke. This can make you certain your performed. Braveness eclipsed everything.
