I've just bought two disappearing and one appearing Fantasio candles and the book made by him. I would like to know how to follow. How should I practice? Should I start thinking about rutines ideas? Are there any videos (hopefuly DVDs) were I can learn more about them? How can I structure my own rutines with them? Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

Michaels video regarding the Fantasio candles is a great resource. The only source I've ever gotten- because I think that any other source would just be a review. So much is on this tape. I am personally, 'more for' books, but this video gets my vote. Check out Michaels other products as well- all are worth an interest.

best regards,

Thanks for the interest in Candles! and the kind words! None of it would be possible without the highest kudos to Fantasio, my mentor and good friend. Also, I appreciate the kind words by those who have watched the video. Stay tuned...the DVD master has been created, and the DVD version of Candles! will be released in the near future. I love candle magic...been doing it since I was 13...I should have waited until I was 18, but I didn't know any better. It's fun. Fantasio has so many clever ideas with his candles, too. It's been a truly fun journey in this business.

Daniel,
I will let you know...hopefully, in 1-2 months it will be released. It is so much better being able to click on which effect you want to learn, instead of fast forwarding and rewinding all the time. We redesigned the cover, too...much cooler! Yes, I'll let you know when they are ready.
Thanks again, for the interest.

I saw Lance Burton on TV a long time ago and he has a nice candle routine. If you can, you might want to try and check that out.

Thanks seth, I've had actually and I admire his work a lot. I own his two TV specials (at least the ones I know of) and I've watched his rutines thousands of times. They are trully incredible.

Cheers

Fantasio has or had several video (tape) out on his products. This is the 1st source I would look at. Email him to see if they are still available.

Practice is needed to learn to hang onto the candle while it vanishes. The best vanish is the visible candle to silk transformation.

WMHEGBLI,

I agree with you. The candle to silk is an awesome effect. I used to use it twice in my act, but found that Richard Hughes has a cool effect where you vanish the candle- and instead of th silk, a rose appears. very nicely made quality prop. If you're serious about this effect, or want to take a look at it, check out his site. Lots and lots of awesome things there. Even has a demo of most of the tricks he sells in his shop. Definitely worth taking a look at.

Fantasio has indeed at least 2 video tapes out that I know of. Each were lectures filmed at the magic castle. Both are great resources as he teaches a lot about the most frequently asked questions as well as different methods, techniques, how to care for them, etc. He also has a book out that covers off on a lot of information. I hope this is of help to you.

Candles! was recently released on DVD. You should be able to get it from your favorite dealer now. Enjoy.

Thanks for the reminder Michael.

I guess those interested could do a search but why not list dealers carrying the DVD?

Again thanks.

I bought the Candles DVD from Hocus-Pocus. It was listed as Video but when it arrived it was DVD!

I'm not sure which dealers currently carry the Candles! DVD. It was mentioned that Hocus Pocus has it, and they are an excellent company. I authored the DVD, and Murphy's Magic Supplies owns it, and it just appeared at Murphy's website, for sale to dealers only. I'm not sure which dealers have purchased it from Murphy's, for resale to the public. The cover art looks great. You can now get to your candle effects quite easily.

Thanks for the news Michael, by the comments above I can tell your DVD must be very good. I'm gathering some money to buy it already as well as Fantasio' video, so it won't be long till I can watch your teachings.

Thanks again
Pablo
