I apologize that I wasn’t very active with the E blog the last few months. I was in a car accident a while back and was laid up for some time. It’s only in the last month or so that I am starting to get everything back on track.
I am excited that my effect Breach: Signed Coin in Balloon was released last week with Ellusionist! I had a blast working on the project with E and it seems to be getting some pretty good reviews.
It was last year that I was sitting in my place playing around with a coin and a balloon. It was through a lot of trial and error that I came up with a working principle that if performed correctly can look pretty amazing.
- The magician pushes a signed coin through the bottom of a blown up balloon. The coin actually goes through the balloon. The balloon can then be ripped open by the spectator to reveal the same exact signed coin inside.
Everything is examinable.
I give two types of handling on the download. The original is a lot more difficult than the alternative. It’s my guess that most people will use the alternative method as you’re left cleaner and don’t have to practice the “move” as much.
I hope you like it!
