The reset for my first time went very well.

A very important thing I did notice when I perform this. Although the question of me drinking the coffee HAS NOT come up yet---I have noticed something interesting. The audience member that I hand the ring to after it has "reappeared" on my Samurai Sword so far has always smelled the ring to see if they smell coffee! I kid you not. I forgot to mention this before. So now I always find the chance to get some coffee on my finger before I hand the ring out so that "best part of waking up" smell is on that ring. It's a minor point but one that for some reason is important to the people I have performed this for. One of the ladies actually said "Wow I can actually smell the coffee still!"


Good magic to all,

Eric, it is these "minor" points that sometimes make or break an effect.

Kudos to your good thinking. A small but valuable point.

Eric, I concur with edh, it's the small details that can have the greatest difference. This could be used with specs ring for a nice 2 ring routine involving different vanishes, having the rings reappear together or to switch in a PK ring it mimics so well in design.

Thank you guys very much. I always like to pass on what I learn from a performance. I know I have picked up some good pointers from other members and I like to feel I'm giving back as well. We basically sharpen one another and as a result become better entertainers.

Thanks again for your comments they mean a lot to me.


Good magic to all,


Eric

Since I have not performed CSI yet, I must thank you too. It is a very good point. I too thank you very much.

The ring is very porous, so if you dunk the re-appearing ring in some coffee, or coffee grinds, it will hold the odor.

Interesting story here. I just relocated from Northern Virginia to Simi Valley, California. With the lovely economy it took nearly two years to sell my home. I have been out here for about 1 3/4 years. My mother moved into my house in Virginia, so the house was fine. Most of my magic was on the East Coast crated boxed waiting to be moved. It all arrived last Thursday. This house is set up to have a magic office with many framed autographed photos and within that room another doorway leading to the prop room. The hallway leading to both rooms will have the poster sized photos. It is all quite exciting. The neat part, it is all on the seconed level and will be my hideaway or for fellow magicians. Sounds nutty but it is going to be so cool.

Welcome to California. I live in San Bernardino and love it. You sound like you are well on your way to having a magicians dream home and I'm happy for you. You must try to make it to the Magic Castle for their swap-meets. But then again I wish all here on the Café could. It would be great to meet you guys in person.


Good magic to all,

I just have a hard time with the whole premise. Why dunk a ring into a hot liquid? Afterwards, why cant they dump the hot liquid out to see if the ring is in there?

The liquid can be dumped out if one uses a gaffed cup. Has anyone who has made one of these comment on how easy they are to make and the ease of handling the cup?

The cups are simple to gaff. I recommend the "grande" size. WELL worth the effort!!

I agree with your point. I like the cup routine.

I visit a restaurant quit often and there are a lot of other men that gather around and talk about the stock market and politics. Can you say if I could present this effect using the restaurant's cup. Being after the vanish the coffee is toxic, can I go outside and throw the coffee on their garden of flowers without harming the environment? Secondly, will the coffee cup be able to be put in the bin with the other dishes the restaurant takes to the dish washer and I will be safe in knowing I have not killed or poisoned anyone?

What about having the cup resting on yr hand w the 2nd ring between the cup and yr hand, and presenting it as a penetration of the cup itself. Lifting the cup to reveal the 2nd ring after the first one has vanished...should take the heat off the liquid in the cup at the end?

Will the cup sit flat with the ring underneath?

I put my cup of coffee on a little drawer box as you may see on the dvd.
Problem was that you could ear the rattle sound of the second ring inside the drawer box when moving.
So I put the second ring in a jewelry ring box with a cushion so that the ring was blocked in it. The cushion inside the jewelry box was dripped in some coffee. Afterwards I glued the ring box in my drawer. With this system you may shake the box without any rattle rattle sound.
