Thanks for the tip Pyro, but I have had a hard time finding the Double Sided Mirror in local stores. It has been awhile since I looked, I was just being lazy. I will check MagicSmith, Thanks Segal!

Buy his trick called twighlight angels. The mirror in that is the right size.

Twilight Angels is indeed an awesome effect; However, the mirror looked too cheap, and I wound up using my Twilight mirror for both effects. Smile

One of the most magical plots in closeup magic. An alltime favorite of mine...but darn! those bad angles!

It is on one of his videos. Not sure which one. I would not of thought you could but it is more of a technique than a trick

Twilight is also in his Art of Astonishment volume 2.

For those of you concerned about angle problems, try this: I got a large irregular shard of slightly tinted mirrored plexiglass. It has a much more interesting look, and the plexi keeps it from being an unintentionally deadly weapon.

The irregular shape inspired a presentation about a mystical mirror that was shattered by ignorant townsfolk, but I digress...

The larger mirror provides as much angle coverage as necessary. The only excuse for the smaller mirror is convenience, although once the mirror gets huge, it does look as little odd reaching only "into" the mirror as far as your thumb. (Try it, you'll know when you look silly.)

And where do you get such a piece of mirrored plexiglass?
Very nice presentational idea curtis.
And also the tinted mirror, I'm sure this will enhance the effect even more since the darker mirror image of the coin will shine brilliantly when "pulled out of the fourth dimension".

Sorry to say it, Dan, but I have always gotten plexiglass from my local, uh, plexiglass supplier. That's all they do, and that's all they sell. I just buy the "scraps" since their usual customer is in the construction industry, and they scoff at orders of less than 200 pieces.

Full credit for the following idea goes to Curtis Kam who suggested using a shard of glass for Twilight. Buy Wolf's Jumbo Shattered and incorporate it into your Twilight routine. I purchased the Jumbo Shattered recently and it is perfect for the effect. Plus you have the added bonus of being able to shatter the mirror and restore it!

It's interesting to me that in the age of the internet people seem to have forgotten about the Yellow Pages...

In any case, most camping supply stores can sell you a metal "shaving mirror" for camping and backpacking. These are highly polished metal and work just fine for the routine plus they are thinner and don't break...

I got two small pocket sized mirrors and glued them back to back. Works great!

Folks, just some history. The effect is actually the brainchild of Tayari Casel, who shared the idea with Paul, and Tayari is mentioned as the co-creator. Tayari is a legendary, world champion Kung-Fu fighter who was into magic, particularly in the 70's, and had some great ideas. He used to come into Barry's Magic Shop, the shop I worked in in the late 70's to early 80's, and he's a real class act.

I know that doesn't help you find a mirror, Chance, but just thought I should mention Tayari's name because he does deserve credit. Concerning a mirror, I think I know where you can find "Shattered." Smile Alternatively, I'd think a glass manufacturer would be a good source.

Regards, Larry D.
