THIS VIDEO DEMO IS FROM THE MANUFACTURER:
Show your audience a large pitcher 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 pitcher 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!
Another idea- pour the milk into the paper cone, but when you quickly fling the cone open, out comes a shower of confetti! Your audience will love the surprise!
Nice large size- it's a big 60-ounce capacity. Made of high-impact plastic. Best of all- it's completely self-contained!
You probably should not 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 pitcher. Here are some 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: 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 pitcher to discolor over time. Not good! Option 4: Use water colored with food coloring.
