Howard Hale of Woodmagic made beautiful magic items from wood. His premier chop cup made with padauk, wenge, zebrawood and red oak is truly a beauty. His Clear Deception is no exception. This is a well known and popular effect. The method is a classic and works very well for the illusion of the plate penetrating the threaded string. I had Howard make me a custom version of this prop, made with rosewood for the base and black ebony for the uprights; the cross bar is red oak. Unfortunately, I hear Woodmagic is no longer around and these pieces are now true collectibles.
Buy this item!! what more can i say, for an opener it gets no better, you walk up to a table and say nothing the boards do all the work for you, this is so different to the usual ‘pick a card’ some very funny moment thanks to the boards.
and just when the specs are thinking ‘oh what a nice gentle trick’ they are hit by one of the best revelations of a selected card, they laugh they applaude then they remember the whold trick and say to themselves ‘Oh it all makes sence now’
also you get a dvd which is well put together and covers everything’
a side point this can be a different selection each time!!
This is one of the early Collector’s Workshop items that is often overlooked. You can still get it today and you should! When you see the price you will be even more excited to get one as it is great value too!
Briefly the effect is this: You show five brass napkin rings each with a different colored silk passing through. You take each brass ring and remove the silk and place it in a supplied blue bag. As you remove each silk you can clearly show the brass ring is empty and you assemble each ring together to form a tube. The tube remains in full view all the time. Then, you have a silk freely selected from the bag and this silk vanishes leaving just the other 4 silks. You now turn to the tube and push a wand or pen or similar and the chosen, vanished silk pops out from the end of the tube.
This is very easy to do and nothing is added or taken away. You will be delighted with the way the gimiick works so well.
I really like this hidden gem and I think you will too.
Ok so I have 20+ new tricks to add and 20+ books, but I have just added one. This beatiful effect by Paul Mims and Doug Gorman is really, really growing on me.
I’ve performed it a few times and it kills! The basic effect is this: 3 cards are chosen from a blue backed deck and then the 3 Magic Chameleon cards are shown and as they are placed on top of the chosen cards one at a time they are shown to change to the same card. Then each card is transformed to one of the chosen cards, and finally the colors of the backs of each chosen card changes to the Chameleon cards (red, green and black) and the rest of the deck are shown to be blue.
This is one of those tricks that needs to be seen to be appreciated. it requires one simple sleight and everything not only is clean at the end, but reset is almost automatic.
Everything about this effect has been cleanly routined and with about an hours practice you will have an incredible effect to perform for the rest of your life. This is already slated for my Christmas shows.
Thank-you Paul and Doug for releasing such a wonderful effect!
