A LOT in a LITTLE! And this is the REVERSIBLE version!

This centuries-old classic trick is named for the Latin phrase "multum in parvo", meaning "much in little" or "a great amount in a small space".

And that is exactly the effect! You start with a small glass of milk, and pour it into a larger glass. Your audience would expect that you would only be able to fill half the larger glass- but NO! As you pour, you fill the larger glass! Next, you take that larger lgass, and pour the milk into an even larger glass- again the larger glass becomes full! Of course, you go on to fill the next biggest glass as well! You end up with a GIANT full glass of milk- all from that first small glass! Where did the extra milk come from??

You can end the routine there, or you can really blow their minds. Take the giant glass, and pour the milk into the next SMALLER one. You'd think that there would be too much milk, and the milk would overflow. But no! The milk has shrunk, and now exactly fills the smaller glass. Pour that glassful into the next smaller size- again no spillover, the milk has again shrunk and only fills the smaller glass. Finally, you end up with the original small glass full of milk. Where did the extra milk go?? What a finale!

The glasses are a matched set of heavyweight clear plastic, with a clever design to make the set more deceptive to use.

This is not a closeup trick. It is best to perform this trick at a distance from your audience, like from a stage. The milk will show up well from a distance, and is easy to see.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Make sure to wash the glasses as soon as possible after use, or they will stain. Use mild soap and warm water, a dry with a lint-free towel or cloth. DO NOT USE abrasive cleanser or a scrub pad or you will scratch the plastic!

Peter Monticup's tips  

Tip from Monticup:

Use a tray under the glasses

This trick is a bit messy, but that's what makes it convincing.
You WILL drip some milk as you pour, and that will prove to your audience that you are really pouring the milk (which you ARE!) rather than using some sealed gimmicked cup or something.

But you need to protect your performing surface from the spilled milk.
Use a tray with handles.
The tray will let you move the set of glasses to your table when you are ready to perform the trick, and will let you easily take all the glasses away when you are done.
Plus, your table will stay clean and dry!
Performance Ideas Performance Ideas:

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.


What you'll get when you buy this trick   Here's what you'll get:

  • set of FOUR glasses with gimmicks
  • printed instructions
You supply the milk or colored liquid.
