Need to vanish a quarter so you can make it reappear using another effect? This is your answer!
And it's so easy!
Simply borrow a quarter, and place it under any piece of cloth- a silk scarf, a bandanna, even a dinner napkin. Let your spectator hold on to the coin through the cloth. He can absolutely feel the coin between his fingers! Next, take a small plastic glass full of water, and hold the glass underneath the coin. At your signal, have the spectator let go of the coin. It can be heard dropping into the glass of liquid. But when you take the cloth away- the coin is nowhere to be seen! The glass is still full of water- but WHERE IS THE QUARTER?? You can even pour the water out of the glass, leaving the glass empty- no quarter!
The coin can either disappear forever, or you can use another trick, like the Magic Coin Box or the Coin Nest, to make the coin reappear again. You can make a complete routine out of the two tricks.
You can even make the GLASS OF LIQUID vanish after you make the coin vanish! Just do the Vanishing Coin in Glass effect and follow it with the Vanishing Glass and Liquid effect. Amazing!
Use this effect as part of a whole routine, by making the quarter vanish, then make it reappear using another effect.With a little bit of preparation, you can perform an incredible after dinner trick. Imagine making the coin vanish in the glass of liquid, then asking your spectator to open a sealed sugar packet that's been on the table the whole time. When he rips open the packet, the coin is inside! All you need to do is to prepare a sugar packet in advance. Since most restaurants offer Splenda, that is a good choice to prepare. At home, carefully open a Splenda packet by peeling the edges of the packet apart. Put a quarter inside, then glue the packet sealed again. When you get to the table, secretly put the prepared packet into the holder with the rest of the regular sugar packets. Now you are set to do the trick later after dinner.
