How to learn to show focus with a glass and a coin
In order to show this trick, an illusionist needs: a coin, a glass and a handkerchief 50x50 centimeters. The magician shows the audience standing on the table a glass filled with water. Viewers see that this glass is empty.
A magician calls a spectator and asks him to approach. At this time, the magician covers the glass with a handkerchief and makes magical passes. The viewer approaches, the magician pulls off a scarf from the glass and the viewer sees that there is a coin in the glass.
Interpretation of focus
The coin is pre-glued to the bottom of the glass. If the glass is empty, then the coin in it will be visible from all sides. If it is filled with water, the coin will only be visible from above. When viewed from the side it will not be visible.
How to learn tricks with cards - the trick "Four Aces"
The magician asks any person from the crowd to name a number from 20 to 10 and puts the indicated number of cards one by one into a separate pile from the deck.Then the magician counts the sum of the digits of the named number, removes the resulting sum from the top of this pile and returns these cards, placing them on top of the pack. The magician lays the top card aside with his “face” down, and puts the rest of the cards in place. Then the magician asks the audience to call the number from 20 to 10 again and repeats the same thing three times, until four cards are left aside. The magician opens deferred cards - they all turn out to be aces.
Interpretation of focus
Before the start of the focus, the conjurer places all the aces on the twelfth, eleventh, tenth and ninth places on top. The rest will turn out by itself.
Learn focal magic and surprise everyone around. The main thing - no fraud!
