I have just made a Blammo Box and I have the front paint scheme but I need an idea for the sides so it looks smaller.Box is 36" across front and 26" deep. Thanks, Mike

Contact "SpellBinder" at the magic nook. I bet he has an idea...

Mickey hades wrote a book in the 1960's (I think it was called 'The Makeup of Magic') filled with tips, painting schemes, and lots of advice on how to paint props deceptively.

That is the correct name of the book. It might be out of print though. The Sam Sharp book "Optical Secrets" also has some ideas on painting.

There is a more recent edition, entitled "The New Makeup of Magic", but the original is available on Mickey's website here (ninth book down):
