Fire Lantern by Brick Tilley

A square-shaped paper chimney is ignited. When it has burned to a cinder the remaining ash floats mysteriously up to the ceiling before descending back to the performer's outstretched hand. Entirely safe and under the performer's control at all times. An excellent effect to be combined with fortune-telling or mentalism. A thing of subtle beauty.

Your own acting ability + presentation will be what makes this work. The description is meticulously accurate: You burn a paper, the flame & ash float up to the ceiling - if you have any draft, it looks pretty eerie. No message can effectively be written on the paper - it wouldn't survive anyway. You will have to use a special type of paper, which Brick tells you under what name it's sold - and I've seen it in most supermarkets. (Does anyone know of a "grocery" anymore?) You'll want to throw away the guts and keep the wrappers. At least I shall, because I don't touch the stuff.

It's not much of an effect for a ten-spot, but the nugget of a plot for your presentation is well worth the $10.
