Lonnie Chevrie has a routine on one of his DVDs called "Two bits in a bottle". Its a quarter in bottle routine. Anyone know where I might find a bottle something close to the one Lonnie uses? I've looked everywhere all the time with no luck.

Thanks

I've not seen Lonnie Chevrie's dvd, however, I'm familiar with the effect. I use a small make-up bottle. Just go to the cosmetics section at your local drug store. Lots of small bottles to choose from.

My fav-o-rite coin in bottle and the only one I perform. Find a bottle of clean make up by cover girl for liquid make up, it’s a small triangular shaped bottle. You will also need a “wave cut” quarter NOT a profile cut and may I suggest while your at it find some tweezers that fit in the bottle.

One be-u-ti-ful routine all wrapped up and ready to go.
In loving memory of Hughie Thomasson 1952-2007.

You brought something beautiful to this world, you touched my heart, my soul and my life. You will be greatly missed.

Until we meet again “my old friend”.

That sounds just like John Bannon's routine from Smoke & Mirrors. Was he just publiching Lonnie's routine?

Williamson's Strike Vanish is a great way to get the coin in the bottle. Does Lonnie use that in his routine?

John published a version of my coin in the bottle in his book and vhs tape, Smoke and Mirrors. At the time John was not aware of my connection to his routine, I found this out much after the fact. John is a good guy and an honorable man, I am certain that he would have given me credit if he had been aware of my connection to this routine. That is the way things work in magic. Things are not just black and white, there is a lot of gray area...
To answer the original question, yes the triangular shaped clean make-up bottle by cover girl will work for this effect. The bottle that I used on the dvd and still use today is an old Signal mouthwash sample bottle. BTW if you use the make-up bottle you may have to make the opening to the bottle a bit larger with waterproof sandpaper, as it comes it is about 40 thousands of an inch too small. To use a wave cut quarter the opening should be 1/2 inch, there are other bottles that will work, that is for sure but for strolling performance the small triangular shaped bottle is hard to beat.

nonvpro, if you have any questions regarding this routine feel free to email or pm me for details...

Hi ixnay66,

No Lonnie does not use the strike vanish. You could however use it. Its a great routine.

You darn old coyote, following your TAOM lecture I have been in every cosmetics center within 50 miles. Getting weird looks because I was asking for Max Factor whipped foundation crème !@#!
