Hello all, I'm looking for a newspaper tear or other torn and restored to use with a single sheet from a large art pad.

The intended trick is drawing a picture on the board, tearing up the picture, and then restoring it shortly after. I have an idea taken from some other newspaper tears, but I would like to see what suggestions people have.
Think inside the box. . . it's less crowded.

I believe Axel Hecklau has a version on his Newsflash 2.0 DVD.
It is for tearing up a single poster, which I think would work for you.

He does have several ideas that may be useful for you. It's worth a look.

Best of luck

You may want to take a look at Lu Brent's 'Torn and Restored Magazine Cover' , which could be adapted to an art pad.

https://trickshop.com/torn-restored-magazine-cover.html


Also, Martin Lewis's 'Coupons' , a torn and restored effect using a single newspaper page or magazine cover.

You can order it ready-made from Martin or see the August 2016 issue of MAGIC magazine where he shows how to make it yourself in his column 'Making Magic' .

On Newsflash 2.0 is a Poster version - BUT it is not a T&R it's like No Tear starting with cue cards to transform it into a poster.
It uses of course the Newsflash folding concept with all advantages but it has no explanation for a tearing process.

But maybe I have a good idea how to adapt this on a sketch pad ( 40 x 30 cm )
Dustin PM me or write me an email...

Depending on what your effect concept is, a single page center tear like that of Sreeniva's Sooper could work.

Clever, and an older variant of this idea is one of the methods I've been thinking of going with.
Ideally, I would have liked to be able to do it with blank sheets (the only images being the ones drawn during the performance); but I might get some borders or something printed up so there's more to draw the eye and less issue with people seeing though the paper.

Than maybe the straight forward "rectangles" type tear would work best? Something like "Fresh Fish" when done vertically. Just tear, fold, and unfold.

This post may have been a litte obtuse. While it may be unmotivated to have a torn newspaper restored in a picture/poster frame, it seems perfectly logical for a sheet from an art pad to do so. The unrestored portion could be half of the artist signiature which would show very visiblly that the unrestored piece (which should be held by a spectator) matches. And a kicker could easily be added that the last piece is also restored.

The late great Karrell Fox published a single page Torn and Restored Newspaper effect years ago. It is still being sold at Magic Inc. The title of the booklet is Final Edition. Still sells at the original price of $10.00.

https://www.magicinc.net/products/final-......ed&_ss=r

You are left with only the single sheet of newspaper, you can PM me if you are interested in requirements.

The Pat Page one is good. On the Karrell Fox "Final Edition" version I agree that the printed instructions from Magic Inc. are minimal , but I think it's clear enough if you lay out the pages of the booklet with the photos and just follow along step by step . Like most of Karrell Fox's material the method is simple and bold, so it's all about presentation, presentation, presentation.


I can't recall if there is video of Karrell Fox performing his Final Edition. If there is it might be on one of the Magic Palace episodes archived on the Magicana website:
https://magicana.com/magicpalace


Or maybe on one of Fox's videos done for Joe Stevens' 'Greater Magic Video Library' series ? I don't remember, but that might be worth an inquiry to Stevens Magic.

Yes. My understanding is that it was a later variation of the Al Baker method released through Tannens.

I remember something in Top Hat Topics with the illustration of the actual paper tear. I also remember Jay Sterling doing it in his act.

I think you're correct. Watching the Fantasio performance it definitely looks like the Al Baker torn & restored method, but I love Fantasio's twist on it , by having the black and white paper fuse into a checkboard pattern. It becomes a unique effect with paper, more of a "blendo" effect, than just another torn and restored newspaper. If you ever want to get your creative juices flowing , just watch the Fantasio lectures that he did at the Magic Castle (still available on DVD: 'Lecturing Live At The Magic Castle' - Fantasio Vol. 1 , Vol. 2, Vol. 3 ) The man was so creative ! He was so much more than only canes and candles. (but of course he was great with the canes and candles and in his lectures he showed how to do some very special things with those products. )

Honestly, I have to admit that I get some of the variations on the torn and restored newspaper mixed up (most of them share some features in common). As I recall, Slydini's is also a single sheet of newspaper that is torn and restored. So I get the Al Baker single sheet T & R and the Slydini single sheet T & R confused sometimes.

Indeed. Fantasio had a brilliantly creative mind. Everything he touched was polished. He taught me his handling of serpentine silk with the smooth horizontal knotting move. Much better than what is generally taught.

I still think the most magical looking piece I've ever seen is the Fantasio-Hughes cane to flowers. One of these days we will need to persuade you, Richard, to document how Fantasio's candelabra worked. I don't know of anyone else who may know.

But I majorly digress...

Fantasia's act is now part of the Copperfield collection. It was special for David as the Fantasio dancing and vanishing cane was one of his early favorites.
I will have t think about telling about the candelabra.
Did you know that he also made an automatic vanishing candle? Ken Klosterman had one. Pretty clever.
