I see some good reviews, but this effect is terrible. Penguin has a DVD by Diamond Jim Tyler called
"Pockets Full of Miracles". In this DVD, Jim goes through dozens of effects that you can carry
around in your pocket. One of those effects is called "Burning Impression". It does what Burn
Notice does, only 100% better, and can be done on any paper surface, such as a business card or
photo. It also allows you to cause a fine line writing to appear. Due to the method of Burn
Notice, what you reveal is difficult to write with a fine line. Jim uses a photo of himself holding
a crystal ball and at the end of the effect, a selected card is displayed in the crystal ball and a
bit of smoke is coming from the crystal ball. It is fantastic! Get "Pockets Full of Miracles"

This one was a dissapointment. First, I had an idea of what to use when ordering and was hoping
that he would have thought through the best ways to do this effect. Instead, the item used to make
the apprearances on a receipt does not lend itself to a clean message. I tried different materials
and found something else to work much better. It wasn't worth the price. It would have been better
if it was a low-cost download and if the tools used to make the message were better researched. I
think a person could figure out a better way on their own through trial and error, something that
obviously the inventor did not do.

The only reason I am giving this 4 out of 5 stars is because on the DVD he doesn't really do a trick
with it. He just tells you how to make the receipt and tells you what is on the receipt in PDF form
that you can print out. It's basically purple elephant in denmark and other such classic predicition
tricks printed on a receipt. He gives you about 10 or so blank recepits you can use for the trick
and they can be gimmicked using something you already have laying around the house. This DOES look
as good as it does on the demo. Can be a great way to reveal ANYTHING.

Title and Creator: Burn Notice by Chris Wiehl
Publisher: The Blue Crown
Reveal anything on a receipt, simply by touching it to the flame of a lighter. Really any kind of
fire source will do. Be careful, kids.
Teaching: Chris is very thorough and clear in
describing the Burn Notice principle. He also goes into a few routines using the revelation that
teaches some psychological subtleties and methods. Also, he totally has a magic glint in his eyes.
Quality of materials/gimmick: The gimmick is great, easy to produce, and totally an
everyday item. You can do this effect everywhere and anywhere.
beginnerkinda. It really depends what you apply this revelation to. Burn Notice is really a
principle and revelation to build routine upon, which is only limited by your imagination. If you
can operate a lighter you can perform this revelation. However, depending what structure you place
around this I guess it could get more difficult. Move Monkeys, Im looking at you.
Applications: Chris demonstrates a few routines but also statesas I said earlierthat you are
only limited by your imagination. You can reveal anything from a chosen card, number, mythical
animal, thought of appendage, maybe even the name of an unborn child.
Overall Rating: I
really love this revelation and its possibilities. The fact that Chris and Blue Crown didnt bog
this DVD down with 30 routines on the principle was very refreshing. Youll carry this with you all
the time. Do it. Support Chris. And if youre like me, youll be thinking youre Michael Westen

Whenever Chris comes to me with a new idea, or a new product, he always makes sure its the best it
can be. This is a great trick, looks cool, and really allows you to have anyword or picture appear
on the paper with minimal setup and effort. This is a great principle. If you buy stuff, then you
already have reciepts, why not trick them out while your at it.

Burn notice by Chris Wiehl in my opinion this is the best reveal I have seen in a long time. This
principle is extremely creative, and can be used in so many different ways and situations. Please
everyone buy this right now because this effect is a must have by all magicians. After watching this
method I have this in my wallet at all times! This is an absolute MUST HAVE. Besides for the small
preparation, everything else is great!
I give it 4 out if 5 stars! The only issue with this
is that some people may not be fond of carrying a lighter, but if that is okay with you this is a

Its a good trick.
it add something to my card to wallet (envelope)
i have many
recipt ready in my wallet where I have writen a card prediction, a spectator takes a card and signed
it, i open the wallet inside I have recipt with a prediction. The prediction is wrong then I burn
the right card in the recipt.
After that I make they check the wallet and inside the wallet
(envelope) is their card.
Thats why I gave it 4 star because it add something to a routine
I already do.
But if you just gonna use it as a reavel I dont think it is that great. You
need a good routine to use this.
When I have performed this people have literally dropped to their knees. I love the reaction I get
when I perform Burn Notice!
Simple practical you probably have what you need for the "gimmick" at home awesome DVD
I do enjoy the method of this reveal. It is easy and unexpected. I use it all the time.
