Mr E Exclusive:

X-Ray Hands


A playing card is selected in a fair manner by an audience member and she is told to burn its value and suit in to her mind but not allow you to see her choice. Let us say that the chosen card is the Jack of Hearts.

Two laminated plaques are freely displayed and shown on both sides. Each side is seen to have a gleaming coloured spot on it, and you explain these are special sensitive X-ray plates.

The chosen card is placed face down between the X-ray plates which in turn are held between the spectator’s hands and she is told to concentrate really hard on her chosen card. A small torch is now shone on the back of the spectator’s hands and after a moment the plaques are removed and separated – but nothing has happened.

Again, your X-Ray plates are placed between the spectator’s hands and a light is again shone upon them. After another brief wait the plates are removed by the spectator who opens them herself to find a full X-Ray picture of her hands (or so you claim) with a permanent impression of her chosen card between them!

Everything can be left for examination without a clue to your mystery. Can be repeated with another card if you wish.

Available in two different sizes; pocket (approx 4 x 2.75”) and Jumbo (approx 8 x 5.5”). The little-known baffling method is surprisingly easy to do.

Comes with the special X-Ray plates & instructions. Use your own deck of playing cards and torch.

Post FREE in the UK. Overseas please add £5.00 for postage to your country unless this is part of a larger order.

A Lifetime In Magic Volume 2
113 pages, soft back, photo illustrated
Devin Knight


Magicseen Publications are delighted that international master mentalist Devin Knight has chosen them to publish his lifetime’s work. The project is contained in a set of books, each one being full of Devin’s groundbreaking ideas.


Volume 2 continues where volume 1 left off with detailed explanations for over 20 Devin Knight masterpieces. It starts with three stunning effects that appear to be as near to real mindreading as you can get. Devin explains little known principles which will enable you to reveal repeatedly which hand a spectator is merely thinking of, to remove the card a spectator simply looked at in a fan, and to name a mentally chosen card without fishing or clues.


The book then moves into a section in which Devin offers you six different effects using his Sanda Panda Mystery Box. This is a simple ungimmicked drop lid box which you can handle in such a way as to create unfathomable miracles. For example, you can use it as a prediction container, for a book test, or you can have a signed selected card appear folded inside the box. There are so many ways that this principle can be used.


Next you come to the core of this book's material - Clip Sight. This is a special clip board that is very easy to make which will enable you to create miracles without having to resort to dodgy electronics or unnatural handlings. This is VERY clever and so practical, and although Devin provides full details of 10 killer effects using it (including an awesome Headline Prediction), any mentalist worth his salt will be able to find many other applications for it too.


The book concludes with four more routines, including a very unusual book test in which a selected SIGNED page is ripped from a book and burnt, only to return fixed inside the book.


Volume 2 contains a lot of reputation making mentalism and psychic material, and so if this is your area of interest, you will find much to inspire you in its pages.

Eric was a quiet and painfully shy boy lacking in confidence, who was bullied by two horrible boys at his new school. He didn’t have any friends either and was feeling pretty low, until one day, a chance meeting with an old magician at a magic shop stall at the local Christmas Fair convinced him to take up magic, which changed his life

PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax

 

The Card on Ceiling trick has been around since the early part of the century and was originally performed with tacks but over the last few decades, magicians have been using wax as an alternative.
PropDog came up with what we think is a great improvement to the wax and that is to colour it to make it much more invisible depending on hour you use it.
The PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax has been specially formulated in conjunction with a dedicated wax manufacturing company to be of the perfect consistency for the trick. It's not so sticky that it leaves a sticky residue on your fingers, but sticks perfectly to ceilings and walls and means you can use smaller amounts, giving you more performances per tub. All colours have been professionally matched and the colourant is wax based, so will not stain the ceiling. Of course the chances of actually flashing the wax is very little and it's never been a requirement before, but as this wax is cheaper than other versions, then using it can only make your act better.

The Colours
For those who like to hide their wax in plain sight, we have:
Sharpie Grey
- For those who hide the wax on their Sharpie, a small amount on the bottom of your Sharpie is almost imperceivable. Just steal the wax off as you give the Sharpie to the spectator to sign their card.
Sharpie Black - For those who hide it on the lid of their Sharpie or on their belt. Just steal it off the lid or your belt as you give out the Sharpie.

For those who hide the wax out of sight, we have:
Bicycle Blue and Red -
Professionally colour matched to Bicycle Card Red Backs. Once loaded on the card, if you were to accidentally flash the top of the cards whilst performing the trick, it is far more unlikely that the spectator will notice the wax.
Natural - for those who are not really bothered and just like to use the standard colour.

The wax comes in three tin sizes: 15g, 30g and 50g. As a guide, the standard Michael Ammar tub contains around 35g.

A 50g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 300 performances.
A 30g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 180 performances.
A 15g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 90 performances.

Please note that these tins only contain Card on Ceiling wax and they do not come with a routine or instructions on how to perform the effect.

Dude That's Cool Magic Presents - PK Blista by Mike Busby

Do you like PK Ring magic... BUT don't like wearing a ring?

The 'Dude That's Cool Magic- PK Blista' is a PK utility device that allows you to perform incredible effects seemingly empty handed. It's silent, virtually invisible and tiny enough to take up no pocket space. If James Bond used a PK gimmick, this would be the one!

With a magnetic strength comparable to a PK ring, the PK Blista has the added advantage of being significantly quieter in use, opening up a whole new world of performance possibilities!

Each PK Blista (2 x supplied)

• Contains a very powerful neodymium magnet with an incredible pull strength (these little guys are seriously strong)
• Has 3mm of rubber coating dulling any unwanted loud 'Clunks' and 'Thuds'
• Has generic flesh colouring
• Has no sizing issues
• Is easy to ditch and apply

In addition join your host and creative thinker Liam Montier on the
accompanying 22 minute DVD as he discusses the gimmick in more detail.

Not only will he teach you methods for ringing the gimmick in and out and handling it in a totally natural manner, he will explain the following awesome (and easy to do effects):

Coin in Bottle - Borrowed coin penetrates through the base of a soda
bottle.

Coin Thru Hand - A marked coin vanishes from the back of your hand,
only to reappear within your clenched fist along with some previously
discarded pocket change.

The Mental Bag - Five spectators each randomly select a coin from a
bag. You use your mentalist powers to predict who has taken which coin.

Time to get Blista-ed!

Clone Coin by Mark Lee


This is a super clean 'Special' coin that can be shown clearly as a regular coin. There are two effects included, but once you see the ingenuity of the coin, there are many more possibilities. Effect one, is a simple coins across in your hands effect. You start off by displaying two coins openly, there is obviously nothing else in your hands. You place the two coins, one at a time, and very cleanly, from your right hand to the left. You now pick the two coins up with your right hand, and display them. They are then thrown one at a time into your left hand (you can even hear them clinking), and you grip them, making a fist with both hands. You make a magical gesture, and although your hands never come anywhere near each other, you can now show that you have one coin in each hand! Effect two, is a coin matrix effect. Using four coins, which are shown and counted, and two regular playing cards, borrowed if you wish. The coins are spread out in to a square formation. Two of the coins are now covered by the playing cards. When one is lifted, a coin has gone, and when the other card is lifted there are now two coins under it. This is repeated, until all the coins are now under one card! You can now show you have only two cards and four coins! These are available in the 10p coin version as standard, but you can order any coin you require. - Standard 10p coin plus instructions - £25.00 + £2.95 UK postage or £4.95 overseas.

Tri-Color Nightmare Plus

From Gay Ljungberg: This is my best trick! I invented it in 1984 and has sold many, many hundreds over the years, it is always a hit at magic conventions. I have liking for doing "ungimmicked versions" of tricks, that are normally performed using gimmicks. This one of those.

Two effects:
PROFESSORS NIGHTMARE IN COLOR
You show thre unequal ropes, one is red, one is blue and one is yellow, counting them from hand to hand. With one simple tug, you make the ropes equal!

LINKING ROPES
Two spectators each choose a rope and you take the remaining one and you all tie a knot in the rope making a circle, a ring of rope. You gather the three rope rings in your and try to pull them a part, but they are linked to each other! The ropes are real, the knots are real and everything can be examined.
No magnets, no extra pieces of rope, NO GIMMICKS! Only knowledge is used. You receive three ropes in different colours, an illustrated instruction PLUS a dvd showing the effect and in detail, step by step, teaching you how to setup and perform the effect.

Bonus effect: ORDER OF YOUR THOUGHT
The spectator may tie the ropes in any order he likes, formig a long rope. You have a red handkerchief visible in your breast pocket. You pull out the handkerchief and there are two more handkerchiefs, all three in the same colours as the ropes, and tied to each other in the same order as the ropes. For this bonus effect you can use your own silks (not included).

You can perform one, two or all three effects in a sequence. Easy to learn! (Gay Ljungberg)
