I am looking for info on an effect.

It uses Nielson type bottle(s) under a bag - where you smash your hand on the bags.

Any info? thanks

I had the same issue in hot climates. It was almost like they wanted to melt. I ran water over them, but didn't help. So I put them in the freezer and that did help. All I could figure was the material they are made of does not like hot and humid climate. Keep them fairly cool.

Cant say this is what is happening with yours, but just an idea.

I love this trick. It freaks 'em out every time. The only difficulty I have is in explaining why I removed the labels from the bottles. How do people justify this? Usually, I just follow Alexander and say that it is to avoid giving free publicity to beer companies.

Yep..I tell people do to photography and video, the label has been removed. I then clink on the bottle to prove it is in fact real before smashing it with the hammer. The label has never been a question or issue!

A friend of mine says "to get a clean break with the hammer, I have removed the label..then clinks on the bottle with the hammer." Really not sure why anyone would question labels, but we still have to cure the situation.

Hi to all my Shattered friends,

As always, things improve with time. I have since modified my gimmicks to be broken a little lower so that the label would be completely gone when the bottle is broken. If you like, you can print peel and stick labels on your printer and stick them around the neck of the bottle. A little photoshop goes a long way.

I have also found that cleaning the bottles with ArmorAll car interior cleaner keeps them shiny and removes some of the stick. Just spray 'em and wipe them down with a dry rag.

All the best,

--Scott

I think I may be in danger of turning into a Scott Alexander clone.

I am adding Shattered to my show, and shortly after I will be adding velocity. Scott Alexander has to stop coming out with killer stuff Smile
