I have an idea for a manipulation routine.
I think of it when I see a ball color change. How about a ball to cigarrete and vice-versa?

Pehaps some of you already do something similar?

Best Regards,


PS. Cardini manipulate cigarets and balls but not transfor ball to cigarete, and viceversa... or I don't see such routine...

With the restrictions on where you can smoke cigarettes, I would avoid them just because of the hassle. John Calvert has a great act with cigarettes he calls "Symphony of Smoke". He now does it rarely and the cigs are not lit.

If you are located in Europe, go for it! Last time I was across the pond if you didn't have a cellphone in your ear you were smoking. (You being a populace observation!)

Cheers! :smoke:

You are right, Cardini never transformed a billiard ball into a cigarette or vice versa.

Will you be working with lit cigarettes, or unlit - you never mentioned in your post.

I second what has been said about lit cigarettes, try to avoid them. It is a shame turning down a gig because of fire regulations or restrictions.

Just my thoughts,

OK. I do, some places have fire restrictions etc. But for me, in magic I must be most natural. I'm smoker and if I make magic with cigarettes, it's natural.

Lit or unlit? I have idea to make some unlit cig manipulations. Next some transformations to white ball and vice versa.
Next cig multiproduction with lighter production at end.
After this I can making Chicago with production balls from cigarete smoke.

Next vanishing cigarete and balls. Last ball transform to Cigarete but.... this is rope ;)
At end of rope tricks I produce big Ring on the rope. Some penetration efects. Change rope to silk and under silk change ring to.... (OK I haven't great finale, but I think about some efects ;)


P.S. [b]Kendrix[/b] can you tell me where I can see Calvert act? Demo videos? Seminars on video?
