After I published the plans for the self-lighting candle, I was asked to come up with plans for a falling picture frame. So after quite a lot of experimentation, I present the results:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHV95MusLtQ

In that video the frame falls completely off the wall but in the ebook I show how to make it either shift a couple of inches on the wall, or to fall a little way before being caught by a string.

It’s completely electronically controlled, and not hard to make, with some basic construction skills.

You can get the plans from Phineas Spellbinder’s site: http://www.magicnook.com

I am also working on a plan for falling desk photo frame.

Very interesting,
just on question. if, as you said in the web, all is the frame... is it safe when it falls? I mean, crashing in to the floor don't break the mechanism?


thanks a lot

Well I do not recommend allowing it to crash to the floor - the mechanism is probably going to be OK but the frame itself could be damaged. So you either need it to fall onto something soft, or else you need it to be caught by a cord - which is quite simple to arrange. As I say in the ebook, it's important to use a strong cord and to attach it with good size screws/hooks but I have done this successfully.

The alternative, also covered in the ebook, is to have it shifting on the wall rather than falling.

The website won't let me order it. It only lets you order the self-lighting candle even when you click on the button next to the falling picture frame. Also, it describes a book with 10 effects but other than the self-lighting candle and falling picture frame it doesn't describe the other eight.

Oh dear - I am sure Spellbinder will sort it out soon but I will email him anyway
The other eight have not yet been written yet!

Oops! My mistake! The PayPal button is now fixed to allow the Frame to be ordered.

Thanks - I didn't know he had one. I guess mine could also be adapted quite easily to do that, basically using the principles from the self lighting candle.

I also have a picture frame that can ignite any picture but mine burns much slower, which I think is more dramatic, and uses no flash products, no liquids or gases, and can smoulder away with no flames! Check it out here : http://www.wix.com/jezstarr/pictureflame
