But the effect is Aldo's. I don't have the right to sell them. Bad ethics, it would be.

If you are discussing the trick in the photo, it was originally put out by Marcom:

Imagine doing Joe Rider's 1970 Three Card Trick (with Four Cards) using your clip art images of Leprechauns and pots of gold on jumbo cards you print yourself. Spellbinder shows you how in The Wizards' Journal #22.

Qua-Fiki has led the way in re-styling old packet tricks in new forms using clip art and the best example of this is in his "Go Fish Card Tricks" collection. Instead of using fish pictures, once again the Leprechaun and his Pot of Gold could be used in most of them.

Google images yielded at least one nice, very useable Leprachaun and pot of gold.

Now if I can just get my butt down to the library to copy them off!

Ok. I went to the library. Sad dissapointment! The library does not have a color printer!! They only offer black and white copies! I certainly am not going to make this effect up in black and white!

I'm back to square one. Looks like this project will never get off the ground. And today is St Patties day. Smile Maybe I need to go find a four leaf clover somewhere, because I'm certainly NOT having the luck O' the Irish.

This won't solve the problem for you in time for St Patrick's Day, but maybe for the future you can look into your local print shops, Staples or Office Depot. They usually will take photos from most digital media storage devices and print them out for you. I have even known drug stores that have photography centers that can also do this. Next holiday coming up is Easter if you want to give it a try.

Jimgerrish What a great idea rabbits instead of Leprechauns, colored eggs instead of the rainbow, candy instead of pots of gold.

Jingerish,

You mean since I have the needed photos saved on my I phone, they will just take it and print it off for me directly from the phone?

You're asking the wrong person. Take it to one of these photo/print places and see what they can use. I don't know a thing about i-phones except that they make everything too small for me to see what I am doing, so I avoid them. But I assume they are up with the latest technology.

You're right about I phones making things small. It's all I have for my internet and for browsing the Café. It's very cramped on this little screen, but it's all I have right now.

Qua-Fiki took Paul Curry's 1965 "Case of the Missing Hat" trick, which we have been discussing here as Marcom's "Leprechauns" and made it into a Bunny and Carrot trick that he calls "The Mystery of the Missing Carrot." It's in The Wizards' Journal #25. He went to a card manufacturing company and had some prototypes made up in jumbo card sizes for those who don't want to print out their own cards. The cards just came in and they look and feel excellent. Qua-Fiki has two versions- the "plain vanilla" version with unnamed bunnies and carrots, and his new variation where the rabbit cards are different and have their names printed on the bottoms of the cards. I've seen him performing this with his computer printed cards and when the new manufactured cards come in, I expect it will be even better. You'll recall that in Curry's original and in the original "Leprechauns" all the cards had to look exactly alike with blank backs. With Qua-Fiki's new version, the cards have backs and the whole bouncing bunny family is there, with Bob the Bunny, Bobette his wife, and all the little Bobbities facing every which way. He also came up with a new "see-through" version of Roy Baker's Flapdoodle Bag to vanish the "stolen" carrot, and vanish all the cards at the end of the effect. I'll try to get him to make a video when the new cards come in.

That would be excellent!

I finally got the Leprachaun effect printed up. It ended up being a major struggle and expense, but in the end I think it's going to be worth it because my end results look fabulous. I used shiny origami foil paper for the colored backs and my leprachauns and pots of gold look way better than the ones Aldo uses in the DVD performance.

So I'm happy.

Qua-Fiki's Video "The Mystery of the Missing Carrot" is on-line attached to The Wizards' Journal #25 description of the effect. In the video, instead of using his flap doodle bag variation, he uses a card box vanish that he originally developed as a transition device between Bunny Business and More Bunny Business, discovering that it also makes a great Carrot Card vanishing device.

That translates to any jumbo card you want to make disappear while the box is in the hands of a spectator. I play the part of a spectator in the video. I'm not really a spectator, but I play the part.

"Cascade" and "Shenanigans" are a different effect than the "Case of the Missing Hat."
