Soul Paper by Rick Lax (Instant Download) A tiny effigy BURNS to a crisp, RISES to the ceiling, and DESCENDS. You SUCK IT UP and instantly REVEAL A SECRET. DOWNLOAD INSTANTLY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Price: $9.95
In stock: Download INSTANTLY.

Magic has the power delight and inspire awe. But sometimes you just want to CREEP PEOPLE OUT. Magic can do that, too. This trick in particular…

Picture this: Your spectator thinks of somebody she used to know—somebody who’s now dead. She writes a secret detail of the dead person’s life on a tiny piece of paper, which gets folded up, ripped up, and thrown into a glass of soda or wine. You place a barrier above the glass—it can be a book or a magazine or a mirror—and then, on top of that, you set a tiny paper effigy.

You light the effigy on fire. It burns to a crisp. And then something incredible happens: THE ASHES RISE TO THE CEILING. Slowly, gracefully, they descend into your outstretched hand, at which point you SLURP THEM UP WITH A STRAW and INSTANTLY REVEAL THE SECRET DETAIL.

The best part is, YOU DON’T NEED TO BUY SPECIAL FLASH PAPER. You can perform Soul Paper with everyday items that are IN YOUR HOUSE RIGHT NOW. With a little preparation, that you’ll learn on the download.

Soul Paper includes instructions on the classic Center Tear (as well as Rick’s 4-Piece Center Tear), thoughts on using patter to foreshadow, and safety tips.

Soul Paper is EASY, FUN, and most of all VERY CREEPY.

*Thanks to Dan White, Jonathan Bayme, and Justin Flom. Credits: Tannen's, John Riggs, Andrew Mayne, Rodney Reyes.

**Be cautious whenever performing with fire. Don’t perform near curtains or wastebaskets and always have water or a fire extinguisher nearby. And if you plan to perform Soul Paper a lot, Rick suggests alternatives to sucking up the ashes.

Simple but very effective Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2013
As an ex-magician that can't stop buying new tricks, I seem to rarely find the time to follow through to practice enough to perform my purchases. Some are simple to do but are not worth performing and many are so complex in design that I doubt many past the inventor ever performs them. Soul paper is as advertised in effectiveness and simpler to perform than I expected. I watched the video then ran out and showed it to our guests. It was flawless and they were amazed! - thank you Rick Lax

One other idea for an already great effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2013
Bought it and love it, but if you don't want to "suck it up" just do the Ashes-Rubbed-on-Arm trick for the reveal. Well worth the price!

Mediocre trick for a good price Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2013
This trick was worth $9 but if the price had been any more I would have been disappointed, the gimmick was nice, the tutorial was clear, but this has to be set up ahead of time and you have to have everything together and with you ahead of time, this is a solely party trick, otherwise great trick!

LOVE THIS! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2013
This is a VERY nice trick, very straightforwardly (is that a word) explained, and well worth the money. You may have what you need in the house, or you may have to make a trip to the grocery store, but the simplicity of this effect translates into a HUGE reaction from the audience.

I will be doing this one every chance I get.

The "bonus effect" was worth the price of the download; I will use that to predict FOUR names, and is a technique I was not aware of before now. (cryptic, yes, sorry, but trust me, if you don't know it already you will use it).

Great Voodoo Magic! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2013
This was very easy to do, and it was indeed with ordinary things I had at home. Usually products that include fire and floating objects are best left to the professionals, but this is definitely something that an 8 year old can master with little practice! (It does have fire though, so adult supervision may be wise) A truly unique trick that you can do in many different ways to suit your style. The patter and your presentation skills will make this a reputation maker! Well worth the money and you get instant download gratification!

Just what I was looking For Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 8th, 2013
For awhile now I have been kicking around a plot idea and looking for the right effect to bring the meaning to it - this is it! I am a mentalist with one toe into the bizare. What you are getting is the secret of how to make your own soul paper - I would never had guessed. Simple to make and inexpensive. You are also shown the basics of a center tear but there are better methods for obtaining information and Rick elludes to the different methods. If you have never performed a center tear this is a perfect effect to learn. I would make two suggestions. First be very careful when asking for a desceased persons name this can be very emotional and should never be presented in a glib fashiion. Those who have performed living and dead tests know what I am talking about. To get maximum impact it should not be presented along with card tricks and other magic - it will dilute the overall effect. This is a stand alone serious peice or part of a bizare or mentalisim routine. Not saying you can't perform this in other venue's - it is just so good why not go for max impact.

Be careful-some info missing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 21st, 2013
Firstly, brand of the product used will not work in Europe because product is constructed differently. There is a brand that works great. I think this info should be included. When you are paying for an effect I do not think it's fair to have to experiment buying 4 different brands of --- . This may be edited but the brand that works perfectly in Europe is Tw______'s.
The first time I tried it, I inhaled ashes into my lungs. This was extremely unpleasant, and made me cough. There should be a warning about this included. I bought download for the rising ash only, as I happen to think sucking ashes into ones mouth is goofy or gross more than creepy.
Probably in better taste to do swallowing ash with something other than "soul sucking" a dead persons initials.
Spectators may find it a bit offensive. (just my opinion)
As the others said, perfect for ash on arm.

Very good! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 16th, 2013
Soul Paper was a HUGE surprise! I've spent so much more for some effects that deliver so much less! This does what it says it does and it looks great!
It's easy to perform and for possibly the first time, I was actually able to do this with stuff I really had in the house already! Lots of times I have heard that only to find it wasn't so..... That said, It's possible you may need to drop by any grocery store to get what you need...but its very likely you really do have what you need already in the cupboard.

It works... if you like the Demo and want to do it....spend the $10. Its worth it!

best!

Effective and Simple Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2013
Great explanation and warm character, he steps you through everything needed to perform the trick. You should be able to very easily get all the common items needed to make the trick.

The demo video is missing a performance step and you actually burn a separate piece of paper from the one they write on. This wasn't clear on the original.

I can't wait to test this trick out :)

Creepy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 22nd, 2013
Since I am a kid this trick really does freak out other kids my age. But not so much for the grown ups. You get great teaching on this video and I highly recommend it for anybody looking for a creepy but cool magic effect
