How to Make a Thumb-Tip
(5 votes)

A thumb tip is a magician's prop used for vanishing, producing, or switching small objects. A classic effect is to have a silk handkerchief or other small object pressed into the top of the left fist. After pushing it well in with the right thumb, the left fist is opened to show the silk has disappeared. These appearances and disappearances are achieved by a small flesh-colored imitation thumb tip, usually made of plastic or rubber, which fits loosely over the thumb. Space exists between the thumb and the tip in which a small object can be concealed.

The thumb tip is usually sold in a magic store with many different sizes, but if you couldn't find the one that fit your thumb perfectly then you could make your own from latex milk. This video will teach you how to make your own thumb-tip which can be used in some tricks.

What you need to buy: plaster or cement, latex milk and modeling clay . You will also need: A stick or a screw, 4 cups, a pair of scissors, a needle or something with a sharp end and your thumb.
