This is a great effect to lay a story to. Thanks, SamOne.

Sinnead has a great idea - drops of blood... mystic stars... demon summoning... vampire stakes... "sticks" ala the Cthulhu mythos story... hec-k, there is a lot of things to wrap around that effect...

Now to see if it actually works for me here!

Any liquid as long as it is combined with water will make it :)
by the way hot water accelerate the process ;)



there is another cool effect you can try with toothpicks :

shows a pan full of water with five toothpicks in the shape of a pentagon,
you take "magic" toothpick and dips it in the center of the pentagon,

The five toothpicks fly apart, breaking the pentagon

the principle behind that is this one :

a cool way for "revelations" too ;)

If you all like these, you should absolutely read Gardner's "encyclopedia of impromptu magic". There's plenty of stuff like this. And I think it is still funnier to read it and try it out for yourself than watching just a film.
