Customer rank: -3[Note that this method is not the method Richard Osterlind uses for his trademark penny bend effect.]
Imagine being able to bend a borrowed and signed spectator's penny, in their own hand in a visual manner. Your audience sees the penny bending in their hand!
You'll learn a secret technique to get a penny to bend as well as make it bend visually for the spectator. This method was inspired by James T. Cheung and Mentalism Plus. (Another description of the same method can be found in Steve Pellegrino's The Underground Penny Bend PDF.)
Does not use:
With this method you actually do bend the coin yourself - so unbelievable this may sound. Unless you are a material scientist you will probably not know the secret ... until you see this video.
- pre-bent coins
- any kind of bending gimmicks which need to be palmed or introduced and ditched secretly
