I need a really ugly swelled up bloody or broken bone looking TT Smile for a trick I am producing. I can find a finger in that shape but I need a TT. I have searched many magic dealers and clown dealers on the internet with no success. If you can help I would be very greatfull.

You could make one yourself.
Use your own TT as a mould and use paper-machier (sp?) to cover it and add on the bone sticking out or something. Then, cover it with a thin coat of latex to give it a skin texture.
You have to be good at mixing paint too get your own skin colour.
Tell me how you get on

You might also want to try dressing up stores.
Places that sell masks and costumes sometimes have severed body parts.
These could be modified.

Thanks Kevin, I tried several costume and stage makup shops but could not find what I was looking for. I did find a finger with broken bones it looks pretty good even on the thumb. But playing around with the idea I had several cheap tts. I got out my mini butane torch and put a small soldiering head on it and made a pretty convincing cut across it and painted it with red devil paint red of course. I also was able to remove the line on the tt that joins it together which is usually a dead givaway with this cheap brand of tt.(Maybe not for the spectator since most effects are done quickly ) but with the magician. Also I put the small flame head back on it and heated the end of the thumb after heated I pressed my thumbprint concaving my thumb down toward the opposite end of tip to form a convincing looking tip with a thumbprint on it.Anyway I appreciate your input. I wanted to play with the idea of grossing the banker out when they asked for my thumbprint on the check.Smile (Not really a trick) The broken bone finger should work.. I'll try it just before lunch my next visit and let you know....
