Close-up magic

Floating Match

An absolute classic magical illusion.

A match is placed across a playing card. At the magicians command the match rises and floats above the card.

Another card is passed under the match to prove it is floating. The match then floats down and rests on the card.

Very simple and very deceptive.

Cups & Balls Set Purple Heart Edition (SPECIAL PRICE)

These Medium Sized Set of Cups have been turned in Purple Heart Wood...this distinctive exotic wood offers an unusual colour with an open 'feather' grain which becomes darker and more vivid as the wood oxidises...

The height of the cups is approx 3.75" with a generous opening of 2.75", the elegant & simple lines of the cups allow the natural beauty of the wood to speak for itself, a tapered design which follows through to the inside of the cup with a dome feature inside the cup... and a matching reverse 'recess' on the outside top.

The Cups have a turned shoulder on the bottom edge, with a further matching shoulder just under halfway up the cup for perfect stacking.

This wood although beautiful does not have the weight or density of many exotics and as such the overall weight of these cups is lighter in the handling...this set will find equal admirer's from both 'Working Magician's' and Collectors...offering an unusual wood, but with an original and distinctive element to this 'classic of magic' for those who relish the 'signature' of hand crafted turned wooden magic!

Presented in Signature Red Corduroy Bag and a Ball Set (colour may vary).

The Haunted Key

This key comes from a Haunted house. There still remains some essence of the poltergeist left in the key. To prove it you place it on your hand and slowly almost imperceptibly it starts to turn over. Very, very slowly it turns over completely. Your hand does not move at all, the spectator can even keep hold of your hand. Believe me this is oh so spooky, it really does turn over with out you doing anything. It frightens me and I know how it's done. (That probably makes it even worse). These keys are perfectly balanced, with routine and instructions on the proper technique for handling the Haunted Key. Frighten your friends while you still have some left to frighten…This will freak them out…Bizarre!

Voodoo - Albert Spackman - (UK Exlusive)

I am very proud to have been given permission to reproduce this fabulous classic effect.

" I love the new subtleties you have added.....The best version on the market!"- ALBERT SPACKMAN! High praise from the inventor himself

Whilst warning about the dangers of "Voodoo" the spectator is shown a card that bears the effigy of a man that is to represent the "victim", this is placed to one side and remains untouched... Meanwhile several other cards also with the effigy of a man on them are shown, each has a cross on a different part of the body.

The spectator shuffles the cards and is asked to choose one in the fairest manner possible. The chosen card reveals the fate that is to befall the victim. the card is revealed... There is an "X" on the foot... when the victim card is turned over ITS FOOT IS NOW MISSING!

Now made in laminated cards. Perfect for halloween! One of my personal favorites.

Pen Penetration

penBorrow a bill and have it signed. Plunge the pen right through the bill. Of course you then instantly restore the hole in the bill. Don't confuse this with any other version on the market. John Cornelius created a fabulous effect with his "Pen Thru Anything" which required a switch of pens. Then He made it even better with his "Perfect Pen". No switching and examinable but a little out of the reach of some magicians pockets... Then came a host of cheaper "Bic" type pens but most of them not that well made... Until now... This perfectly ordinary disposable style pen is beautifully made and looks completely natural. The simple act of removing or replacing the cap and the gimmick is gone... leaving just a simple ordinary pen... Yes it writes too. I have seen most "Pen Thro's" and in my opinion the only ones worth having were the originals from John Cornelius until this came along. Highly Recommended!

One of my best sellers!

When unfolded the paper has a hole the banknote is of course is unharmed. You then instantly repeat it using a smaller piece of paper.

Everything can be borrowed and it can be worked impromptu. You receive a well printed manuscript with detailed instructions and diagrams to take you through it step by step. So simple to do but an absolute killer effect…Now comes with bonus pencil thru bill routine a-la Timothy Wenks "Mislead".

Pencil Through Banknote (a version of 'Mislead'. Included with Bill Buster, above)

Although similar in effect, this is not to be confused with 'Pen through anything.' or the Bill Buster (above) In fact it gives you a different method and handling making it perfect to use as a substitute for the pen.

You borrow a note and fold it almost in half. A pencil is then taken and inserted between the fold. Suddenly you push the pencil straight through the note and clearly show that it is penetrating the note. Now you rip the pencil out of the note which is immediately shown unharmed. It looks incredible and with a little handling is easy to do.

Complete with full routine, pencil and special gimmick.
