They won't believe their eyes!And here's a guaranteed attention-getting pocket trick!
The basic effect is this: Show a small paddle with a striped optical illusion design.With a shake, there appears to be a coin-shaped shadow forming in the middle of the paddle.Suddenly, the shadow becomes a a REAL QUARTER sitting on the paddle!Shake it again, the quarter disappears!
But that's just the beginning! Depending on your skill, you can dump the quarter out into your hand, and appear to produce quarter after quarter from the paddle. Or you can use TWO paddles and make the coin jump from one paddle to another, disappear from both paddles, then have quarters appear on BOTH paddles. Use your imagination- you can do so much with this simple paddle trick. And best of all, it can be repeated immediately, with no fussing or preparation!
The Mirage Coin is done using the Paddle Move, an easy skill that is explained in the instructions.It does require a bit of practice to make it look convincing. It's worth the effort to learn, though, as there are many tricks that also work using this move.
You'll get ONE paddle in your order. Want to use two paddles together in your routine? Remember to add a SECOND paddle to your order!
And this one comes with an IMPORTANT BONUS!You'll get the password to Monticup's BONUS VIDEO!MagicTricks.com owner Peter Monticup will show you his secret technique for performing the Paddle Move smoothly and easily.It's like you are standing in the shop getting a private lesson!You can't get this video ANYWHERE else!
You supply the ordinary coin (a quarter is a good choice).Attach the coin with glue or with Magicians Wax (sold below).
Peter Monticup says: I use this trick every time I go to the store. At the checkout counter, after the cashier tells me the total, I take out the paddle and produce a quarter. I then say, "You don't mind if I pay in quarters, do you? It might take a while!". The cashier and the other customers get a good laugh and get to be entertained with an amazing money trick!
And by the way, if you want a great way to temporarily but securely stick the quarter to the paddle without damaging the quarter, try using Magicians Wax.
