But Altrez, did you really think that you could write on your finger, then pull it off in a string of plastic?

Maybe you did, but logic of method says, "No, I won't be able to do that. There will be a little extra something I'll have to do. I can tell that FROM THE DEMO!"

I don't mean to pick on you specifically, but come on, it's a magic trick! Let's keep the discussion real. And let's not get into methods. And, no, there is no such thing as real magic, only tricks with (hopefully) good presentations.

Steve,

It looks great and I do plan on buying it Smile

If I would want a text to appear on my hand/finger, how clean do I end? As people said, I'm pretty sure people will want to look at my hand if a have a text appear from nowhere on my hand.

Imagine:

Asking the girl of your dreams if she can palm read (i know its on the finger..but bear with me)
No matter what her answer is tell her to try on your hand and then reveal "i love you" or "marry me?" or simply just her name.

Altrez, thanks for your enthusiasm Smile
As you and Steve were discussing, some things do involve setup. Xfinger can be used in a million different ways..I didn't write the ad copy, but I think what they intended to mean was that it CAN be done impromptu. Of course there are other ways it can be done, depending on what effect you want to create.

Regarding your other question, I don't want to reveal too much, suffice it to say, we do teach you how to clean up.

As many of you noted, this effect is ideal for combining with other effects. I have been using it in combination with Stars & Hexes for years. I don't have Tagged yet, but it looks like they would go together like peanut butter and chocolate.

Some Idea's: I don't know if these will all work but give it a read:

A prospectve client : draw a bored smiley face and say
"this is your audience before my act"
Change it to a face with a big smile and say
"this is them after"

Virtual Coin Flip : draw a coin with heads showing. Ask the spectator heads or tails. then change it

Wrong Card Prediction : write ace of hearts on your finger. From a deck force 7 diamonds. Then change the text accordingly.

you and I : her initial, a heart, then your initial. Shake and both initials end up inside the heart.

LIE DEDECTOR: the word truth changes to lies when the spectator lies to you


PETALS: clip some petals behind your fingers. Draw a flower on your finger shake your hand letting the petals fall into the girls hand. reveal flower on your finger missing all but one petal.

PHONE NUMBER/WWW : write your phone number on your hand. let them take it down then ask them if they want your email as well..shake your hand and it appears.

CUTE TURN DOWN : at a bar have the words "buy me a drink" on your finger. Walk up to some girl and show it to her when she tells you "no" shake your hand to make it say "fine!" that will be funny to see her reaction.

How often can I change?
Small example: From lie to truth, again to lie and so on.
Is this possible? Or can I only once changes?

Oh sorry I missed that one, looks fantastic I'm sure this one will get amazing reactions.

One last question, can they inspect my hand after the text did appear?

Also I was wondering, will papercrane offer the same type of download as their other products? Because E´s downloads wont play on mac.Smile
