Hello,

I have been trying to get this right for ages now and I still think I must be doing ti wrong. So I was wondering if anyone has any tips on doing it. I am trying to make a fantasio vanishing candle appear. All that people say is to do the effect you just need to pull it up. But it never works. Any ideas anyone? Does anyone on here actually do this?

Best wishes,

Luke

Ok I don't quite understand. Yes I know people out there can do it. Lance Burton uses vanishing candle's to appear all I was saying was that when I try to do it it all un winds. I was only asking for a tip or someone who does it's advice on it. I obviously mis understood the Magicians helping magicians concept.

I still don't know if you are joking but here is an answer. Don't use a death grip while holding the candle!

I have use candels ever since they came out and can't think of this happening.

Only thing I can think of is that you have somehow gotten a bad candle.

It is all in the grip!

Luke,
Seriously, the reason for the response is that unless you have a bad or damaged prop, this is very close to self working. So, hold it but not too tightly and don't over extend the length. If you are still having trouble, pm me and we will go over it in more detail. Hope that helps.

Well, it's just that the candle bit always comes off I think I must have some old candle's they where a gift from someone who had toyed with them. Thank you UFO for your kind reply. I was told you need to twist the candle fairly sharply to get it to work. And use an eleastic band. Oh well, Iwas going to purchase some new fantasio ones anyway.

Take care,

Luke

Luke,

It looks like you may have a damaged candle. If it is old or used for a very long time, there may be a chance that the tip and banding at the top has come undone and it not as tight as it should be. That does happen and Fantasio discusses this in his lecture videos from the Magic Castle. Hope this helps.
