A favorite effect now EVEN BETTER!


The Candle Thru Arm has long been a favorite magical effect because it is so easy, yet it's a real showstopper.
Now, this NEW AND IMPROVED version is better than ever because you can actually let the audience see right through the EMPTY tube before and after the trick!

This is a really startling visual illusion!
First show that the tube is COMPLETELY EMPTY (yes- you can let the audience see through this tube!).
Place your arm into the tube, completely filling it.
Then pass a lit candle right through the cylinder- and through your arm!

A really startling and unexpected effect!
It's completely self-contained and mechanical- it works all by itself!

Adults only if you want to use a lit candle.
We do not recommend fire effects for anyone under 18 years of age.

However, this is a very easy trick for younger magicians if the candle is not lit, or if you use another rod-type item instead of a candle (such as a magic wand, etc.).

What You Get

Here's what you'll get:

And that's all you need!

Tips & Ideas

Performance Ideas:

You can also use the Appearing Candle or Vanishing Candle instead of a regular candle. Make the candle magically appear, and then pass it through your arm.
You can use a rod or a broomstick instead of a candle. As long as the item fits into the gimmick, you can use it. A pool cue, a blackboard pointer, a thin cane, etc.
Prove that the rod really does "go through" your arm by using a silk handkerchief. First, place the canister on your arm. Next, lay the handkerchief over the canister. Now poke a rod or broomstick through the hole- it will push the silk scarf through the hole with it, right through your arm.


Q: Can the candle from the appearing candle be lit? Can it be used with the Candle Through the arm? If so, does it need to be white or can it be the red one?
Asked by: John Carpenter - 8/2/2015
A: Yes, if you use the Appearing Candle with the Candle Thru the Arm, the candle can be lit. The gimmick inside the Candle Thru the Arm lets you use any color candle. So if you use an Appearing Candle, you can use either the red candle or the white candle. And if you want to use a regular candle, you can replace the one that comes with the Candle Thru the Arm, and use ANY color candle that is similar in size. The candle that comes with Candle Thru the Arm is the standard taper candle found in stores. Answer provided by:  3dcartadmin (9/10/2015)

Good trick for an adult size arm. Would even fit a kid size leg.
