It's not a pen or a pencil... but it's close! It's a magic crayon!

No, it is an Appearing Crayon. What you have there is a very old cigarette move. It is much better if the cigarette gimmick is used. It gives more freedom and makes possible a number of other moves like the floating cigarette behind interlaced hands, and very good way to vanish the cigarette, making a kind of little routine.

Trick with gimmick.

Instructions sheet only, no gimmick.

Great idea Robert. Yes, it's an old cigarette gimmick and you could use the old gimmick and it would open up other moves.

exactly - which is why using crayons instead is ideal. Some restaurants have a 3-pack give away for kids. Many effects are possible with these "found" crayons.
