Topic: The magic painting palette
Message: Posted by: stuartmagic (May 27, 2011 06:47AM)
Years ago, Supreme Magic Company over here in sunny (not) England put out a magic painting palette trick. This was the type that was a white plastic paint palette board with 4 or 5 paint blobs on that were drawn on beforehand with dry wipe marker pens so that they would wipe off with a brush as the little monster, sorry child ! , wiped the brush over.

Does anybody know of any dealer that still sells this. I am not after the cardboard instant vanish that is still available, just this one. Especially as it is made of plastic and is more useful if you get an awkward monster, sorry child ! .

I have looked all over the internet and couldn't find one :(

Many Thanks,

I believe Ickle Pickle now makes a version like this!

There is one here with a photo, perhaps it is similar to the one Hank Lee is selling. This is from Dazzling Magic.

I like how the dazzling magic unit has the wood finish

I think that's the one (Dazzling Magic Prop) that Stuart stated he DOESN'T want- the color dots all turn blank together.

Stuart, if you are into "do-it-yourself" magic, this is very easy to make from a Dollar Store (or Quid Store) whiteboard of cardboard. You can either make the board all white, as in the model Hank Lee sells, or you can make just the spots white circles with black outlines (of permanent magic marker ink) and glue them onto a regular wooden paint pallet from the art store. The advantage to do it yourself is that you can have as many white spots (and therefore different colors) as you choose. They don't have to all be round, either. Try cutting them out to look like white blobs with irregular shapes.

Stuart, I got my first one from House of Magic in Stourbridge for 5 with the pens. It's worth checking out shops or dealers of second-hand magic like Taurus in Blackpool or Castle Magical Supplies in York.

I made a second one from a plastic paint palette from the Works and four dry-wipe pens. It works just as well and these pens don't smell like the original ones.

Thank You for all your comments.

Yes you're right Spellbinder this is the one I was not after. Now either you have seen my act , know me, or have psychic powers as, yes I do dabble about quite a bit with the "do-it-yourself" magic. It's just that I was going to be a bit lazy for once. I do like your idea of not making the paint circles round but more like blobs of paint. I will certainly bear that in mind when I go ahead making one up.

Themagiciansapprentice, I have checked Mike Shepherd's castle magic and Derek Lever's Taurus but couldn't find one.

I will, however, probably make my own up . All I have to do is find a Dollar Store in the UK, that's about 20.00 in todays money, maybe poundland ( approx 5 cents ) will do ;)

Many thanks to you all.

Stuart Brown.
