Hi..What is your material when you perform close up magic, if you wouldn't use cards? See i've been trying to put together a routine where I don't use cards at all, it's hard without cards. And it's darn hard to come up with a new routine with a matchbox and a..Pen! Or anything else... :shock:

Cups and balls are neat and classic, but if it would be with everyday objects. I'm sure you understand my question,

What does your close up magic consist of if it wouldn't be cards?

Also, I'd like to ask if NO CARD TRICKS - by Jay Sankey is good for learning some good old fashion closeup magic?

Thanks

I use some coins for coins across and sankey's no jacket required with all the coins going to your pocket. You could also do ghost bills and you could do some loop stuff.

I don't know about No Card tricks, but Sankeys Linking Rings Routine from 3 Ring Circus is perfect.

There are chop cups made to look like a normal coffee cup. Then you can rig a coffee creamer package to work with it.

Chop coffee cup and creamer! I found this idea in the Magic Menu bound volumes.

Rig some sweet and low packets with Super Gel, or carry a small vial of it with you (careful if you ever get searched by cops, a vial or baggy of white powder looks a little suspicious!). You can't really build a routine around it, but it's good for one or two illusions.

Hmmmmmmm... here are some ideas off the top of my head for close-up material:

On The Spot (DVD) (Greg Wilson)
Coins
(Bobo's book will get you started, then get Revolutionary Coin Magic with Jay Sankey)
Scotch and Soda/Dime and Penny/Vodka and Orange Juice
Mismade Dollar Bill
Visi-Bill (Richard Sanders)
Hundy 500 (Greg Wilson)
Slow Burn (Richard Sanders)
Thumbtip & booklet or DVD
Sponge Balls
Color Deception Brass
Leaving Home (Jay Sankey)
B2 Bomber/Stealth Pen/Deluxe Pen Through Dollar
The Xpert (Neil Tobin)

This is a short list to point you in the right direction. Hope it helps you out.

I like the bat as a close up trick because u can stop watches, vanish coins, move things on a table, and do the kenetic rings with out changeing your prop.

I absolutely love impromptu magic. That is, magic that appears unprepared.

For example, let's say you're at a restaurant. You pick up a jelly packet and visibly toss a borrowed dime into the packet. You open the packet and dump out the jelly and dime. (Mike Powers' "Jelly Roll" [Top Secret Stuff, pp. 161-163].)

Or, you could pick up a sugar packet, rip it open, dump out the sugar, make the sugar vanish, restore the sugar packet, and re-fill it with sugar. (Steve Cohen's "Sweet Treat" [Ruminations, Vol. II, No. 5].)

If you wanted to, you could light a cigarette (if you can find a restaurant that permits such things) and then place the lit match into your hand. When you open your hand, the lit match has completely vanished. (Gene Anderson's "Son of Morning" [Fork Full of Appetizers, Book 1, pp. 53-54].)

If you borrowed a ring and removed a shoelace from your shoe, you could perform miracles, making the ring jump between your hands and penetrate the shoelace. ("Clifton's Ring Move" and Earl Nelson's "Earl's Ring Move" [Variations, pp. 103-107 and 108-113].)

Perhaps that will whet your appetite?
