Hi Don,

Nice to know your back. Hope you get well soon. meanwhile I wanted to ask you a basic question. Since I even have your earlier book. Black Art as the way we refer it does not have to use UV lighting right. What do you feel about using UV lights for a particular illusion which requires black art but not a black art act by itself. If required I could PM you on this. Thanks for the help. Bye.

Hello Dondrake,

Welcome back. Glad to know that you have recovered from your illness.

I'm a lover of 'Black Art Magic' and eagerly look forward to the release of your ‘NEW BOOK’.

Take care.

I use black art in my act. Don built my backdrop. We have discussed the lighting thing pretty extensively. UV lights (blacklights) tend to light up things you don't want lit (such as loose threads, lint, etc.). The best way to light black art (according to Don) is from the sides. Place your lights on both sides, slightly downstage. This gives the illusion of lighting from the front, without ruining the the black art effect as direct lighting from the front would. Also, the placement of small spots with blue gels around the perimeter of the stage, facing the audience helps the black go even blacker.

Hope this helps,
