After watching the demo several times, I figured this was one of those TGTBT tricks. I was happily
proved wrong after discovering the secret. The strongest magic, in my opinion, are tricks done with
simple, non-assuming objects. Peter has laid this effect out so well that you cannot help but
appreciate his cleverness and creativity. Practice and give this beautiful piece the attention it
deserves. It's really not that hard to perform either... Thanks Peter and P.M. for this wonderful

I wish we got a video download. However, Peter does have a link for video instruction and
Without giving anything away, the risk factor is higher than I normally like
in my tricks. I'm a 50 year amateur. It's probably lower for those that use mechanics often. I
prefer low risk and self-working or gimmicked tricks. This one requires about two minor sleights or
handlings. The strength of the trick makes the practice time worth it. I won't perform until I've
mastered the routine. My audience is primarily friends, family, co-workers and at the bar.
I don't like to alter the tricks, but will attempt to do this trick with a pen instead of a
pencil and without a glass of water. We'll see how it works.
Not for the lazy sleight of

This is a great effect with excellent video instruction. I'm only a novice and believe even a
beginner can pick this up with sufficient practice.
My only concern is that one of the gimmicks
won't usually match what it is swapped in for (and I know why). However, I don't believe most
spectators will notice. It's probably my own paradigm/over thinking.
I'll let you know if my
thoughts change after I begin performing it regularly.
First of all Peter does a terrific job of explaining all aspects of the trick. It's a simple but
elegant vanish. Secondly everything is supplied so with just a few minutes of prep you can start
doing the effect. Well done!
While the idea is good and gimmick clever, I am disappointed in the trailer leaving out that the
pencil needs to go in your pocket after the vanish. In the trailer it appears to be set on the table
while the water erases the impression. I give this 5 starts on creativity and originality and the
routine itself. Lost 2 stars because everything can not be immediately examined. And the routine
does not play out exactly as it does in the trailer.
Very clever. Easy to carry and perform. Almost "automatic" although not necessarily a beginner's
trick. Highly recommended.
Impression Vanish by Peter Boie truly looks like real magic! To have a visual penny just up and
vanish before the spectator's eyes results in absolutely stunning reactions. The best thing is that
it is super simple to do and practically self-working. If you are interested in a close-up miracle,
you definitely need to purchase Impression Vanish.
Peter has come up with a trick that is simple to execute and uses a simple technique. Yet the result
is spectacular. Even the misdirects are built in.
This trick is the Essence of GREAT magic. Simple, easy to follow and Fools the Sh#@t out of
everyone, laymen and magicians alike. Dai Vernon said "A good magic effect should easily be
described in one sentence.".....eg: "A penny is covered with a piece of paper the paper is
lifted....the penny is GONE!" What could be more simpler than that? Peter Boie Has created an effect
that is simple and will fool and enchant the most skeptical of spectators. Buy this trick! This man
needs to be supported in the midst of all the "Crap" being released. Did Vernon also said that
"Magicians stop thinking too soon." Peter has thoroughly thought this trick through. The method is
GET THIS TRICK!
I have found away to make the vanish happen without that little move that is thought. I first draw
my portrait darker than the presentation. This way if you start from the bottom go up nice and slow
and back down the penny slowly there is no need for that fast lilttle move as tought.I always make
any magic trick my own by simply trying different ways than were thought. Carefull where you perform
this meaning don't do this on a wooden surface place a magazine down or use a magicians pad.
