For the first time ever, in this 30 minute video, Scott explains and demonstrates how to manufacture the cheap and easy to use, real time impression pad he has been using for years. Once you have the materials together (they are cheap and widely available) and have watched this video, you will be able to produce one of these pads in about ten to fifteen minutes.
If you can use a pair of scissors and tape, you can make "The DIY I-Pad"
No special pens, paper, pads, magnets or expensive refill pages. Produce small pocket pads, medium sized pads or the larger A5 reporter's pads ideal for close up and stage.
Finally Scott will teach you the basic handling for his under their noses, slow motion peek using the pad, along with his favourite handlings for a close up real time drawing duplication and a Test conditions Pre-show Drawing Duplication.
If you are looking for a real-time, practical, innocent looking impression pad that you will use, then The DIY I-Pad is for you. You'll never buy another expensive impression device again.

This is incredible. Expensive for a download. But as a video it is extremely easy to follow. The pad is shown on both sides during the routine and the test condition method involves the pad, pen, drawing- everything sealed in a large envelope. It is stapled all around and signed. Yet the magician duplicates the drawing. To make things easier, I would use 2 dozen drawings made by kids. They would simply think of 1 to draw so they don't try to get too artistic. Some people are actual artists. Some grocery stores dollar stores and Dollar General sell the gimmick in the toy section. If not, Amazon can deliver within a week at the longest. Best $$ spent.Extremely recommended.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. That's all I really need to say about Scott Creasey's video instructions for making your own imp pad. All you need to do is get a bunch of cheap pads and a three-piece set of one special thing that you can buy on Amazon for about $12.50, but it's enough to make you at least a half-dozen DIY I-Pads. I currently use Mark Elsdon's commercially manufactured Spy Pad, which is very similar in concept. It costs $40, as I recall, and while refills are about half that, you have to use a refill after about 50 uses. With Scott's DIY I-Pad, once you buy your special thing pack for $12.50, you are pretty much set for years. All you have to do is buy up some cheap pads that cost a couple of bucks at OfficeMax. As soon as my Amazon order arrives and I use up my current Spy Pad, I'm a convert. This is the best impression device for the money.

DIY I-Pad by Scott Creasey is outstanding. In less than 15 minutes, Scott shows and explains how to make the DIY I-Pad with simple, easy-to-follow steps. The remaining 16 minutes are devoted to handling and routines. I really like this download and the pad, and will never again have to purchase an expensive impression pad! The handling and the p**k are Scott teaches are so good. No more worries about a 'quick' p**k or unnatural, awkward moves. In classic Scott Creasey style, the handling and routines are very well thought out and proven workers.
