Liquids, Chemicals & Bottles

Magicians were always among the first to adopt new technologies, such as electricity as in the famous "Heavy Light Chest" invented by Robert-Houdin. Advances in chemistry are no different.

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph
Visual Card in Bottle by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

A spectator selects a card (yes, this is a force) and magically the card appears inside a sealed bottle. The bottle can be handed out as souvenir.

Ralf explains in detail how the gimmick is made, works, and is deployed. You will need some supplies you will likely not have lying around the house, but these are all easy to get. This is meant for parlor or stage use. You will need about 3 meters distance to the spectators.

Floyd Gerald Thayer
Thayer's Complete Bar Act by Floyd Gerald Thayer

The complete inside dope on the Magic Bar Act and Soda Fountain Act where you can pour a seemingly endless number of tasty drinks from a single bottle.

Here's a swell addition to your regular act - a routine that appeals to most any audience. For adults, you pour whiskey, beer, sloe gin fizz, a vodka martini - and other drinks - which are then served to your audience. And, unlike other inexhaustible bottle routines, this isn't colored water; the drinks actually have flavor and are refreshing. Perform it on a regular nightclub floor. Or do it behind the bar at your local watering hole. You'll...

Jerry Clowin
New Way Golf Ball in Glass by Jerry Clowin

Jerry Clowin has made a significant improvement to the method published in Golf Ball in Glass. It builds on that same basic method, but introduces an important refinement which allows you to overcome a bigger difference between golf ball diameter and jar opening. With this new method it is much less of a hit and miss, and the search for the proper jars has become a lot easier, too.

Besides safety equipment (safety glasses and gloves) you will need in particular three tools to accomplish this task. One tool pretty much every normal household has. The second tool is found in most workshops, the last one you...

Spirit Slate by Brick Tilley

The Davenport Brothers caused a sensation in the last century by seeming to contact spirits. Leaving messages on blank slates was a common method of achieving this. Flaps, magnets and switching were among the ways to achieve results. Here is your chance to reproduce this phenomenon using an ordinary craft store slate, and a piece of chalk. A blank slate is cleaned as it is shown. Yet a bold chalk message appears without any cover or false moves. A stunning effect that startles onlookers. Easy to perform.

Ray Roch
The Impossible Coin in Bottle by Ray Roch

A very well constructed method and routine for the classic coin in the bottle effect which does use a solid coin.

Even though there are many good routines, they all seem to have flaws. Most detrimental is the fact that a folding coin’s elastic band can break at an inopportune time, and another problem is that whenever a performer has to access a pocket to retrieve or ditch a coin it becomes a suspicious move.

These problems are dealt with nicely during Ray Roch’s Impossible coin in the Bottle routine. The hands never leave the performance area and always remain in sight. A solid coin...

Zenith Spirit Manifestation by W. G. Magnuson & Devin Knight

This was designed to fool both skeptics and magicians. This is one of the most stunning mediumistic stunts ever devised. It was developed and used by the old school mediums. It was so unbelievable; it fooled reporters, skeptics and magicians. A medium who could be searched and placed into a darkened room could cause a spirit to materialize in full view, without the aid of any secret assistants. This could be done in anyone's home.

The amazing thing was that this was accomplished without luminous cardboard props, luminous cheesecloths, luminous paint or other props sold by Nelson Enterprises....

The Blood Feast of the Sun by Ken de Courcy

Ken de Courcy and Billy McComb took an old chemical effect, figured out the secret that makes it work reliably, and worked out all the other kinks, to make it ready for real world performances. The effect reads like one from Lubor Fiedler.

Effect: The magician introduces a circle of yellow tissue paper and hands it to a spectator to crumple into a ball. He receives it back then, holding it at his fingertips, concentrates on it for a few moments. The tissue ball is placed on an ashtray then ... it suddenly bursts into flames and burns away.

Label Flash by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

A bottle label magically penetrates the glass and is attached on the inside of the bottle.

Effect: Write down a prediction, for example a playing card. Since you have no piece of paper you write the prediction on the label of a cola bottle. Then have a spectator take a card from your deck (yes folks, you will need to force the card). And then reveal that you have correctly predicted the card. To give the spectator a little souvenir you sign the bottle label. On further thought you want to make it even more special. Take out your lighter, burn the label and suddenly the label with the prediction...

Conditions in place throughout the effect:
