This comes with my Jack the Ripper Case but is also available by itself from the same page.

When exposed to a very simple compound, it bleeds! Each page (you get two) can be used over and over again!

From hell.

Oh, these do exist?

I tried purchasing some about four years ago but received nothing but the runaround.

My messages always went unanswered...that is, until I filed a PayPal dispute. Then I received a reply in about five minutes. I was told something like the wrong address had been written on my package but that it would be re-sent right away.

After a couple of more weeks, some more excuses (can't remember if "my dog ate them" was one ;) ) and still no letters, I finally got my money refunded with neither explanation nor apology.

Caveat emptor

I am terribly sorry that happened to you. I PM'd you a suggestion which I hope will remedy your current lack of ownership.

Is this the simple children's science experiment with g*******d paper, or something different? I have played with the former and did not care for the colour.

Also, how does it differ from In Lizzy's Hand ( http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S6835 )? I remember Arlen Studios had a Jack The Ripper letter that would manifest a bloody handprint, many years ago.

Just to clarify,
I can't imagine Vince giving anyone the runaround (so we are speaking of another dealer correct?)
I just don't want someone to speed through this thread and have to think twice about trusting Vince.

Is it like Lizzy's Hand? Yes. It is like that.

I used a color laser printer to add some shading to the effect, but there is not much you can do for this when it comes to the color. I found that is does "age well" and does not lose potency with a "coffee in the oven" treatment. Also, remember, as a magician you are aware of these foibles, but your audience will not be. I have never ever had someone say, "What is this stuff?" Create the correct level of suspension of disbelief and it will be a great effect for any show!

Four years ago I made the mistake of partnering with someone (I think I told you about that Vlad). He kept selling me off-the-shelf from Staples yellow paper and it did not (obviously) work. I was going through some personal issues and realized at the time that I wasn't ready then to do these things myself. Hence why I asked Gemini Artifacts to take over for my Death of Poe and Poe Brainwave effects. Also, I dropped off the scene for a bit.

Now I am and make these myself from an online supplier of the paper (not available in stores anymore).

So, suffice to say, when Mind Guerrilla could not get his orders, I let PayPal sort it out so I could sort my things out. It was dark times then and I felt horrible about the situation.

Nevertheless, the happy customers I have now show that I am back!

I am deeply sorry Mind Guerrilla and hope I can make it up to you.

I'm sorry you ran into that issue, as mentioned it didn't sound like the Vince I've come to know (and walk up the 756 stairs of Whitby with)
unfortunately we that dedicate ourselves to performing arts end up running into unusual circumstances (issues with relationships because of.. and a plethora of other ills)
I'm glad you forged forward and didn't throw in the towel, but used it as a , this isn't where I want to be .
To better days ahead
