Kranzilla Unleashed
A book featuring the creative magic and comedy of Nathan Kranzo
£30.00 + P&P


Clever, quirky, original, commercial, funny, different, practical - these are just some of the words that you can use to describe the magic of Nathan Kranzo.

With effects ranging from visibly sliding a tan line up your arm, right through to enabling a spectator to cut to the four Aces, Nathan combines raw cunning with extensive magical knowledge to produce magic that is always interesting and usually totally baffling.

And running through all the material is the Kranzo sense of humour which is at one moment subtle and mischievous, and the next raw and basic! He loves to have fun with his spectators and while much of the magic in this book includes his comedy presentations, Nathan also explains a number of great visual gags that you can place straight into your act.

Amazing Human Lie Detector - Table-Hop Pro Size

by Eddie Burke


Entertaining, effective & straight forward it almost works itself. Packed with audience participation. Eddie used this for several years as part of his billing as The Human Lie Detector.

You pass out five large playing cards for examination, these can be mixed and shuffled by your audience, as you explain that you have studied lie detection without using a Polygraph machine and you rely instead on people’s breathing, palpitations, hesitation, and general body language for your clues.

With your back turned to your participant you instruct him over your shoulder to mix the five cards even more thoroughly. Then you ask him with the cards in his own hands to simply think of one of the five cards while your back is still turned so you cannot receive any clues as to the card he has in his mind.

Now you ask him only to answer yes to your following questions, in this way he will tell four lies and only answer truthfully on ONE occasion.

Taking a card in turn you ask questions such as, “Is your card a RED card?” or a heart card etc, to each question he answers yes. In this manner you eliminate in turn four of the cards, until you are left holding just one card back to the audience.

Now you ask him to truthfully name his simply thought of card, let’s say he names the, “Jack of hearts.” You turn around the card you are holding for everyone to see it is indeed the Jack of Hearts!

This clever method is 100% certain. The card is different every time you perform it. Yet you always reveal the card he is merely thinking of correctly. No stooges, no peeking. Everything can be left for examination.

Comes complete with instructions and five unfaked playing cards in Table-Hop Pro size.

L.P.I (Looch Pocket Index) - Stainless Steel Edition


Back in 2007, Looch set the Mentalism world on fire by introducing the L.P.I (Looch Pocket Index). This well designed pocket miracle maker instantly sold out and was considered by the pro’s as one of the best pocket indexes ever made.

Over the years one of the most frequent requests from fellow mentalists was for the L.P.I to be made available again. After years of research, discussion and development, Read My Mind Ltd are delighted to announce that this incredible product is finally back and better than ever!

Each L.P.I has been expertly manufactured in Stainless Steel and will last a lifetime of performance use. Load up your L.P.I with billets, folded business cards, or even currency and it will always be ready to assist you in producing mind blowing mental miracles for your audiences!

Each Stainless Steel L.P.I comes with its own custom printed velvet bag and access to an eBook with detailed instructions. You will also be granted access to the Facebook owners group to share ideas and routines with each other. (Facebook account required)

*Please note, the L.P.I is designed as a billet index, with the primary focus being to simply and efficiently organise a range of ‘outs’ and give you instant access to them during performance. It will not hold a full deck of playing cards.

What the Pro's are saying about the L.P.I (Looch Pocket index)

"The best mentalism uses ‘invisible’ props which are seen but go unnoticed, or, in the case of a good billet index, completely unseen. Looch has designed and carefully built an exceptional index and it can certainly be used to produce devastating effects." Ken Weber


"I have long searched for a perfect billet index; finally the search is over, thank you." Lior Manor

 

"The LPI is well conceived, carefully executed, delightfully compact, flawlessly functional, and soon-to-be scarce. I've never used a better billet index." Doug Dyment


"A well made tool, and more importantly readymade, with a plethora of possibilities." Marc Salem

 

"I recently used LPI at a convention; I like it because it is simple and can't go wrong, it worked perfectly." Richard Osterlind

PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax

 

The Card on Ceiling trick has been around since the early part of the century and was originally performed with tacks but over the last few decades, magicians have been using wax as an alternative.
PropDog came up with what we think is a great improvement to the wax and that is to colour it to make it much more invisible depending on hour you use it.
The PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax has been specially formulated in conjunction with a dedicated wax manufacturing company to be of the perfect consistency for the trick. It's not so sticky that it leaves a sticky residue on your fingers, but sticks perfectly to ceilings and walls and means you can use smaller amounts, giving you more performances per tub. All colours have been professionally matched and the colourant is wax based, so will not stain the ceiling. Of course the chances of actually flashing the wax is very little and it's never been a requirement before, but as this wax is cheaper than other versions, then using it can only make your act better.

The Colours
For those who like to hide their wax in plain sight, we have:
Sharpie Grey
- For those who hide the wax on their Sharpie, a small amount on the bottom of your Sharpie is almost imperceivable. Just steal the wax off as you give the Sharpie to the spectator to sign their card.
Sharpie Black - For those who hide it on the lid of their Sharpie or on their belt. Just steal it off the lid or your belt as you give out the Sharpie.

For those who hide the wax out of sight, we have:
Bicycle Blue and Red -
Professionally colour matched to Bicycle Card Red Backs. Once loaded on the card, if you were to accidentally flash the top of the cards whilst performing the trick, it is far more unlikely that the spectator will notice the wax.
Natural - for those who are not really bothered and just like to use the standard colour.

The wax comes in three tin sizes: 15g, 30g and 50g. As a guide, the standard Michael Ammar tub contains around 35g.

A 50g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 300 performances.
A 30g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 180 performances.
A 15g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 90 performances.

Please note that these tins only contain Card on Ceiling wax and they do not come with a routine or instructions on how to perform the effect.

You can view the full range here: www.propdog.co.uk/accessories/putty-waxes

Clone Coin by Mark Lee


This is a super clean 'Special' coin that can be shown clearly as a regular coin. There are two effects included, but once you see the ingenuity of the coin, there are many more possibilities. Effect one, is a simple coins across in your hands effect. You start off by displaying two coins openly, there is obviously nothing else in your hands. You place the two coins, one at a time, and very cleanly, from your right hand to the left. You now pick the two coins up with your right hand, and display them. They are then thrown one at a time into your left hand (you can even hear them clinking), and you grip them, making a fist with both hands. You make a magical gesture, and although your hands never come anywhere near each other, you can now show that you have one coin in each hand! Effect two, is a coin matrix effect. Using four coins, which are shown and counted, and two regular playing cards, borrowed if you wish. The coins are spread out in to a square formation. Two of the coins are now covered by the playing cards. When one is lifted, a coin has gone, and when the other card is lifted there are now two coins under it. This is repeated, until all the coins are now under one card! You can now show you have only two cards and four coins! These are available in the 10p coin version as standard, but you can order any coin you require. - Standard 10p coin plus instructions - £25.00 + £2.95 UK postage or £4.95 overseas.

Impossible Card Magic

Impossible Card Magic is a perfect title for this DVD. Every effect on this tape is impossible to figure out when you first see it - you will be fooled! The skill level ranges from intermediate to advanced but the effort involved in learning these routines will surely put you ahead of the crowd. All the routines are show-stoppers and all the methods are new and original. This is card magic that will fool and entertain. Includes Raise Rise - One of Ray's signature pieces, an ambitious card sequence where a signed selection is placed near the bottom of the deck, sticking out for half its length. Visually, the card jumps up to the middle of the deck, then near the top, then becomes the top card! The card magic contained on this DVD is not easy but each effect is well worth the practice. Highly Recommended!
