A true classic of magic- and with good reason!
Show your audience a large glass FILLED with milk. Form an ordinary newspaper into a cone while talking about evaporation of liquids by magic. Your audience watches in amazement as you pour nearly the entire glass of milk into the cone. Wait a minute- why doesn't the milk seep right through the paper?? You can even pause to take a taste of the milk to prove that it's real.
If that's not amazing enough, when you crumble up the paper cone into a ball, apparently with the milk inside- the milk has VANISHED and the paper is dry! This gets a strong reaction every time!
Very clever design, easy to handle size. Made of high-impact plastic.
You probably do not want to use regular cow's milk with this routine, as milk can spoil and because of the fat content, can be difficult to rinse out of the Milk Glass. Here are some other options: Option 1: Use soy milk, which does not spoil and can be sipped during the routine to prove that it's real milk. Option 2: Mix up some powdered milk just before showtime. Again, the milk can be sipped, and it is easy to transport because you keep it in powdered form until you use it.Option 3: Use colored liquid made from water mixed with ordinary food coloring.Option 4: NOT RECOMMENDED to use the solution marketed as OOM. This is concentrated machinist's cutting oil which, when mixed with water, turns the water a milky color. It's not suitable to be ingested! It also has a strong smell; your audience will know it's not real milk, and will mistakenly think that the trick works by using some sort of fake milk. Plus the oil will cause your Milk glass to discolor over time. Not good!
Pro Milk Glassprinted instructionsYou supply the milk or other liquid. You supply the paper bag or paper cone. CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Make sure to thoroughly rinse and dry the Milk Glass as soon as possible after each use. DO NOT use a scrubbing pad or any type of abrasive cleanser on the plastic, as it will cause scratches and make the glass look cloudy.
Louis Nikola and Roy Enoc are both credited with introducing the concept of this trick.
