I was eating lunch yesterday with a couple freinds. we all got the same soda. I was walking to the bathroom when I noticed another bottle cap of the same type on the ground. so I picked it up and when I went back I saw four bottle caps. and I had one in clasic palm. I guess you know what happened next . I did a chinkachink routine I sort of made up on the spot. with clasic palms and bottle caps. at the end I just ditched the bottle cap by moving my hand back and laping it. it actually got great reactions. try it. its really easy because they practically stick to your palms.

No. but next time I will. I'm actually looking at some chink a chink routines without extra coins. I think I will get daniel garcias Sh4de it looks pretty good. bottle caps are good for practicing bare handed matrixes. give it a shot

That's a great impromptu routine. I've used olives, grapes, dice, and little sugar cubes. I usually throw in a three in the hand, one in the pocket routine leaving the extra in the pocket at the end. You'll find that in the Malini-Bey Chink-a-Chink in Stars of Magic, one of the best magic books ever written.

Good thinking. Another effect to consider is Two In The Hand One In The Pocket which can be adapted to many small objects.

Nice one! I do matrix type effects with an extra coin the David Stone way. Cocktail Matrix with a cross of coins across.

Albert Goshman did that a long time ago.
He keeped the bottle caps in very precious box ,so the contrast was very funny.
The routine was done without patter, with oriental music , and funny dancing moves of the hands.
A great moment.

One of my favorite Oh Wow moments was seeing Mr. Goshman in K.C. in about 1976.

Reading his name sent me back to a wonderful moment in time.

Thanks for the memory.

I noticed the same thing with bottlecaps. They are so easy to palm, them and those bite-size York Peperment Paties. Smile

I love the Malini-Bey routine in Stars of Magic, but I had problems trying to do it with dice. Casino dice worked better for me.

Sh4de by Daniel Garcia is a great impromptu routine and is perfectly suited for bottle caps and only uses 4 bottle caps (and borrowed coins as well). There is a part in the sh4de routine where the ridges of the bottle caps are just perfect for a no-palm palm for a super clean and very visual production of the 'travelled' coin.

Right! Albert had a greaat line: After taking out the Jewelry box and displaying, which he made a BIG deal out of, he would open it and dump out the bottle caps. The audience was surprised, and that's when Albert looked at them, very seriously, and said," You expected rubies?" with that East Coast accent. It was very funny...
