Here is a new method that doesn't use chemicals and available soon from Hocus Pocus.

UNLEADED-"The Write Way" by Devin Knight & Txema Gicó

A new modern way to do visible spirit-writing without any chemicals.
Magician shows a pad of paper and talks briefly about spirit writing
in the past and how mediums used slates and chalks. They also turned
out the lights. You will try some modern day spirit-writing by
trying to channel the spirit of Houdini, using nothing but a sheet
of paper and a toothpick,in full light and view.

A sheet of paper is torn from a pad, and you give the paper and along
with a toothpick to a participant. You ask him to try to write his
initials with the toothpick. Nothing shows up because there is no
lead in toothpicks. You tell him you want him to mark the paper so it
can't be switched. You hand him a REAL pencil and he writes his
initials on a corner. This lets him see what real pencil writing
looks like on the paper and also lets him see its just a normal piece
of paper. A card is secretly selected and left face down on the
table. NO FORCE. Nobody looks at it yet.

You ask the person to remove any toothpick from a box of toothpicks
and to make sure there is no secret writing device concealed in it
(such as lead). You claim you will channel the spirit of Houdini who
will cause the toothpick to act as a real pencil and write the name
of the unknown card.

Performer closes his eyes and holds the toothpick against the paper.
As he moves it, REAL PENCIL writing (automatic spirit-writing)appears
on the paper.Remember the person's initials are right above the
writing that appears. Finally the complete name of the card is
written, say 5 Hearts. The face down card is turned over and seen to
be the same. Houdini has apparently channeled the name of the card
and caused it to appear in penciled spirit-writing.

Remember there is nothing concealed in your hands and the spectators
see the toothpick causing pencil writing to appear.There are no
secret writers, chemicals of any kind, carbonless paper, carbon
paper, nail writers, double writing, etc used. NO GIMMICKS of any
kind!!! Your hands can be shown freely at anytime, and no amount of
hand-burning will reveal the secret to an astute spectator.

Complete with toothpicks, pad of paper and complete directions giving
several variations. One variation is called: "Unwritten Impressions"
and is a novel mental-epic type routine in which spirit writing
appears on three blank sheets of paper correctly predicting the
spectator's choices.
