Hello all!

I'm a fairly new poster here, although I've been lurking for quite some time now.
I've recently gotten a rising interest in the field of mentalism (a year and a half or so) and have come in contact with mentalism involving fingers and hands.
I was just curious if you knew any resources that would teach any effect or subtelty involving your own or your spectator's fingers.
I'm not talking palm reading but genuine effects/performance pieces requiring only your fingers and 1-2 billets at most.
Here's what I currently do involving fingers:

Handy prediction
palm prophet

As you can see these 2 effect are great but I feel like I'm missing a final piece/transitioner in the routine.
I purchased the ionic force hoping for a miracle but it didn't fulfill my expectations.

Since I'm new here this might not be the best question to ask. If this is a problem please tell me.

Thank you!

That's weirdly specific...
But if you haven't yet, than you definitly learn finger reading (or any muscle reading techiques)
Reader discretion is advised.

Hi Baguette,

I'm not a mind reader per say but perform some mental miracles. I would suggest looking at Ben Harris' Silent Running procedure. Using your fingers you can read their minds and identify what card they are thinking of with out any apparent fishing.

You/They also don't have to write anything down.

Hope that this helps

All the best

Michael

There's a Leo Bordeau principle that has been massaged by several here (sorry, I forgot exactly who they all were, but Joshua Quinn was one!) in a post in Inner Thoughts that has an interesting finger application.

Wow thank you all for the surprising amount of response!
Where is the inner circle part of the forum exactly? I know that there is a certain amount of posts required though.

Cheers!

I'm a big fan of peter Turner's work, where could I have the chance and pleasure to learn "?" (see gab's post) if of course he has released the routine/effect?

I hornswoggled a room full of magic hobbyists last year with something from Karl Fulves' Self-Working Mental Magic (p. 60). Gotta' love simplicity.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

Some of the psy card forces out there make use of your fingers and hands to form shapes casually as you talk - drawning numbers in the air or forming suits as you "project" to them.

Fingers can also be used to get impressions of letters (you draw in the air) as you do a PA.

I think there are some finger excercies used for hypnotism inductions, but they may be a bit more magicky.

Woody Aragon has an entertaining finger based mental routine on his DVDs.
It's more of a joke than a truly mystifying routine, but it can be a lot of fun.

? by Peter Turner means I don't remember the name! Smile
I was referring to an effect where the participant see a number in his hand.
