Ok I live at college and there are a lot of parties. So I'm at a party last weekend and I didn't bring any cards and some people recognized me and told me to do some magic. here is what I did these are true impromptu effects.

I started with bad habbit by Daniel Garcia. (if you put the practice into this effect it is a great impromptu effect. In the final stage I do my own coin vanish I invented to make it go back into the box.

Someone handed me a fork because they remembered me doing it at another time and I just did the second half of liquid metal by Morgan Strebler.

I also did a ring and rubberband routine by Daniel Garcia and finish with crazy mans handcuffs. this is also completely impromptu because I always wear a ring and rubberbands around my rist.

I also did ghost bills (With the right presentation this does get good reactions.

Finished with Sinful which completely blew them away.

So these are some truely impromptu effects with completely barrowed objects that I made an entier routine out of.

I would like to know some other great impromptu effects. I read something about a center tear, I am somewhat new to magic and don't know what that is. I recently ordered Gregory wilsons on the spot and hope ill use some material on there.

The Centre Tear is a mentalism technique; if you want to get into mentalism you should check out 13 Steps to Mentalism by Corinda - it has a whole chapter on that sort of thing, and loads of other great stuff, much of which is impromptu.

Are you referring to the trick from On the Spot? If so, I belive Wilson officially calls it "A Questionable Trick". (I'm being nit-picky, but if someone's looking for that particular trick, wanted to give them the "right" name.)

Sinful by wayne houchin , of course.
what I also like to use pretty often is Infusion by andrew mayne.
both of these effects do not use gimmicks and of course they are 100% impromptu

As a mentalist I always do impromptu stuff as it plays strong. My advice would be don't forget your cards, first of all (it is unpardonable), also it is pointless to buy [b]Corindas 13 Steps…[/i] for one technique (centre tear). You can find that technique almost anywhere. Dan Harlan’s impromptu magic video is a good place to start. Get used to carrying at least a couple of props on you; cards, thumb tip. It is not the amount of magic you know, it is how well you perform what you do know. Books do not give you good technique, neither can it be bought, to start with perfect, what you have got!

What kind of reactions do you get fron infusion? Because it doesn't seem that great a trick to me, or not as good as ghost bills.
-A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
-It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

See you space cowboy...

I agree. When I did infusion for a group of people, they nearly figured it out. My friend didn't even buy the trick and he knows how to do it.

Pinnacle from Russ Niedzwiecki, Misleading the Mislead, version of Matrix...let`s say you use bear pads instead of cards, coin thru table, coin in can, etc.

"sinful" and "a questionable trick" are probably my two favorites. These always hit hard and they are pretty easy to do Smile

Funny you should mention infusion. This is a so-so trick. I took time to get it down. Even though I didn't get the trick. I figured it out the first time I saw the preview. I also like 3/4 across from gregory wilson. But the point to this post was to talk about true impromptu tricks with completely barrowed objects. While cards and thumbtips are great, its unreasonable to carry them every second I leave my dorm or house. I really like the art of completely impromptu on the spot magic. Daniel Garcia's bad habit trick is awesome. Its original and it uses something I run into alot. You only need one quarter in your pocket and everything else can be barrowed. Does anyone else do this trick?

Book Test (Bold & Subtle Miracles of Dr Faust by David Hoy)

Magic:
Han Ping Chien coins thru table (borrow 4 quarters and a ring)
coins across

Cash ladder - two rubber bands are held between two fists. A bill is wrapped around the top strand. It magically jumps down to the second, then the third and, sinally, the last strand.

Linking bands - a rubber band version of the linking rings using two ungimmicked rubber bands.

Ring that goes up a band. A ring is placed on the strand of a broken rubber band that is stretched between your hands and held on an inclining angle. The ring is at the lowermost end. As the spectators watch, the ring slowly moves UP the band without ANY motion on your part.

All are available on the rubberband videos featuring Dan Harlan (Hi Dan!) from L&L and available from your favorite magic dealer.
