HaHa, what have I done?! Smile

That's awesome!! And a great story too Smile

Hobbyists say "12 phases of ACR". Professionals stick to saying the standard "17 phases of ACR", as per the Stars Of Magic manuscript.

If I do Fax, I do 2. Before that I was doing Darwin's, soo... 7?
Lol.
I guess I'm neither a hobbyist or a pro. Smile

Haha, "Stuck in the middle.."

LokI

PS. If they are going crazy, do a hundred Smile There is no rule about ACR phases. Just the #1 rule; Entertain Smile

Darwin Ortiz says Daryl used to do the entire ACR he taught on video. Daryl of course followed what LokI said about following the #1 rule!

Hi all, I have been using FAX in the wild, performed a few times so far.

I brushed up on my ACR with the World's Greatest Magic DVD, some good material there, especially the Tommy Wonder performance.

Fax is the perfect ender.

I have them sign the card, and this gives me the power to tap the deck and bring it to the top.

Then I sign the card, and they can do the magic. For me this was a logical way to handle things.

Very Nice Bill!
Once again, you are thinking broad! Smile

I really appreciate you sharing your new ideas.

So now, you hav made it into a "Reality Button".
They "push" the button, you can do it.
Then you "push" the button, and they can... Smile

I'm really liking the structure and logic there Bill.
I think I will spin it a few times, see how it goes...

Bigger Reactions may actually BE Possible.
Thank you Bill for the spark, it has given me some great ideas already.

With all that is going on, I am thrilled others can find openings for even More Logic Traps!

Thanks again!

LOL! You guys are killing me here! Good Stuff! I really couldn't stop! I usually only do 3 or 5 phases of ACR depending on the reactions. I was seriousely geeked! =P

Ok, I got this directly from LokI (thank you very much for all your help Smile).

Fax is excellent Smile A great tool for so many effects! And LokI's teaching of the method is very good and clear.

Before I had got through maybe a quarter of the DVD, I had started practising. It's fun, especially when you realise you actually can do it! Smile

At the beginning of the DVD, LokI tells you how this effect is accomplished. I must admit, I really didn't think it possible to do this until I saw it with my own eyes and then practised it with my own hands. Which is part of its power...

I know LokI has been performing Fax for a long time, but he has such confidence in the technique on the DVD that, before I'd even attempted to perform Fax, I shared that confidence! I found myself watching the DVD like a kid at Christmas, really looking forward to getting started with the effect and confident that I would be able to master it.

When I really started practising, I found it was the nuances regarding the method that LokI teaches which were most helpful to me Smile It's that attention to detail which really helps me to progress in acquiring (and hopefully mastering!) Fax.

LokI suggested to me that I watch his 'method' sections of the DVD, then read When Truth Dies, Lies Travel... and The Velvet Expanse. I did as he suggested and realised how powerful Fax truly is. The Velvet Expanse, especially, conveys and adds to this power and shows how, used properly, it is an excellent tool with which to enhance and create a lot of effects Smile

I must admit that when I started watching the routines section on the DVD, my mind wandered as I started playing with my own ideas for effects using Fax (nothing groundbreaking - but hopefully entertaining) Smile

Having watched the rest of the DVD now, though, I can say that Francis Menotti has come up with some novel routines using Fax, and he explains them well.

Thank you, LokI for sharing all of this with the magic community. You could have made money selling The Velvet Expanse as a separate product, but instead decided to give something back to the community. May you be rewarded! Smile

I am so glad I got this. It was well worth the wait. And now, enough writing - there's practise to be done!

Can any brand permanent marker be used to sign the card?

(Saysold1 responded yes...)

Great, that is what I hoped. Sharpie fumes have become a migraine trigger for me. I only recently found a compatible off-brand that fits in a Sherpa pen.


Now that I actually have FAX I can confirm any permanent marker, not matter how odd, can be used. My guess to how it was done would not have worked with my markers, so I am glad that I was wrong. Smile

Here is an old vid of FAX in use.
I didn't even think about it till now.

FAX + Buddha Paper + A force + An Alan Wong Product.

Enjoy!

Hey thanks!

It was so old, I forgot I had a video of the Facsimile technique out there. Smile
I could have just used that to pitch it Smile

I will be filming the first add-on affect that I am offering free to FAX owners this weekend.

It will be a simple video, and I will not show the part from FAX. But it will show another effect from it that I use the technique for most!

I hope you will all be pleasantly surprised Smile

Then it is up to Penguin to make it so I can offer these additions to you!

Wishing for the best! (I don't know the *hopeful emoticon)

Funny. I just watched it and saw my description:

"Here is a little miracle I like to pull on the unsuspecting. Thinking about adding it to my DVD, but I'll be honest, it is 90% Hustling and 10% Sleighting. SO... I'm not sure how practical it would be, plus the ink is very rare, and industrial."


LOL. I was talking about the Facsimile technique. (Minus the ink comment).

Thanks A lot Guys!

This is my go to for my use of FAX. And had been for about a year now. Smile

The tutorial was filmed with FAX and was 37 minutes long. P3 still has it.

After some time I have found ways to streamline the build, teaching, and how it works.
I love playing with this gadget, you can make an earring vanish and appear pinned to their signed card.

This is just the first "product addition" to FAX, (meaning it could have been a separate release), I have plenty more! Smile

Thanks again for the kind words everyone!
