Are there any tricks out there where you can pound a nail through your finger or hand? I'm working on an idea where a nail is displayed, then you lay your hand (palm up) onto a piece of wood. Next you tap the nail with a hammer halfway down into your palm. When you lift your hand, the piece of wood is lifted, too, implying that the nail is through your hand & connected to the wood.

I'm not sure I can make the gimmick; that is why I'm wondering if there is any methods that are available to buy.

I don't know.....why don'tcha ask JESUS .....

sorry, couldn't resist...


NICE premise though, and a whole lotta possibilties in the gaff dept., though I cant think of one now....

it would definitely be some serious gaffing though, probably mechanical in nature...

Gede, I don't think that one was a trick !

Hmm.. stigmata, maybe that'll be the next body modification fashion craze.
Quarter inch holes in your palm, right between the bones and tendons.

Although joking, Baba is in my frame of mind.

The reason I'm looking for a Nail thru finger/hand routine is for when I tell my story using "nails that may have been around for the cruxifiction of Christ" from my Cabinet of Curiosities. I considered SPIKED but cannot afford it.

Maybe I will just continue with my method and include it in my second book that I publish.

I've seen a few people do it by first covering the hand/finger with a cloth and pounding the nail through that. there are many similar, you put your appendige into a box, basket, cylinder, etc.

that might make it easier for you to work out your own method.

You could always make a small version of the candle through arm I suppose, though that's kind of tacky.

Scaress,

Covering the hand with a cloth before doing the penetration would work superbly! Only I'm not sure how I would accomplish the penetration.

I am not familiar with how a KNIFE THRU COAT effect works. Would I be able to use the same principle to do a NAIL THRU (wrapped in cloth) PALM effect?

Mystician,

I did contemplate a CANDLE THRU ARM in miniature for my finger but, being that my storyline is about cruxifiction, I leaning more towards the hand/palm.

Thanks.
