Curtis why not go with a Cadbury or other chocolate instead of chewing gum?

Sure, why not? I've seen some mighty fine foil on those designer chocolates. Of course, I'd have to get into the habit of carrying fancy chocolate around with me. Not so easy here in the tropics, but it might work for others. Good idea!

How about the chocolate coins that are in foil? I can see a whole routine here....Take chocolate coin out of foil wrapper, change into quarter, and "print" quarter image on candy foil..... Smile ..

Niva, Joseph,
Good ideas! Hard to believe that what started as a simple post of praise has turned into such a productive brainstorming session. This is what I love most about the Café. Thanks everyone!

Does anyone know--does this work at all with a chewing gum foil? Maybe a particular brand? I'm trying to get this to look a little more "organic".

Curtis, it's been my experience that the thicker or more heavy duty the foil is, the better the impression it will retain.

I understand why Curtis is looking for gum paper. It's more common to corry a chewing gum with you than a chocolate. Unless you are a chocaholic like me. Smile

Aaron Fisher actually published an effect based on this principle.

A borrowed dime vanishes and is produced from the pocket. It then morphs into a stick of gum.

I'll look it up and see if he mentions what brand works best.

All the best,

Kranzo

There is another effect from AOA III, called Hot Chocolate: You bring out a flat, folded Hershey wrapper out of your wallet and inflate it into the real thing. Sounds like a perfect way to introduce the foil from the chocolate bar!

Yes, and then Paul's "Chocolate Coin" routine in which you show the spectator that the quarter from his pocket is actually a chocolate coin. Hmmm, Do I sense a theme running through here?
