Now available at Ellusionist are two new magic tricks that are practical and easy to incorporate not only in your performances, but also real-world situations. Have you ever put sugar into coffee, tea or diet soda? Ever reach into your wallet to pull out a bill? If you answered “yes” to either question, you have already found yourself in the perfect position to pull off either of these amazements:
Cast Out by Will Tsai is a simple, lightning-fast change where a blank piece of paper becomes the currency you need. You can then use that bill, because it’s real currency. (Counterfeiters will be greatly disappointed with this effect.) There are no funny moves, no palming, nothing you’ll have to ditch and virtually no pesky angles. Cash Out instantly resets, and you can use multiple bills, so you can make your next date night full of magic. Or just freak out that punk at the Starbucks who insists on saying “venti” instead of “large.”
The name of Sweetly Done by Shane Black is both the official name of the trick and a pretty good description. Perhaps you know of a method to get a quarter inside a sugar packet. Black’s version sweetens the deal — in this download, you’ll learn handling, convincers and other tips that let the spectator feel the packet before the quarter goes in and also when the quarter is inside. Sweetly Done uses an incredibly clever gimmick that lets you focus on performance. This is a perfect effect for anyone in a bar, restaurant or coffee shop.
What, you don’t put sugar in your diet soda? Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
