Question about Melt
We now have been forced to accept and use ALL plastic bills; our 5's, 10's, 20', everything is PLASTIC!!!! GRRRRRR
Is it possible to perform Melt with Plastic bills that do not fold well?

You need sharp creases in the bill so here are a couple of suggestions:
1. Use your own pre-creased bill (as Rick Lax does in his demo video).
2. Experiment with your local currency to see if you can get a sharp crease.
3. Experiment to see if you'll be able to create a sharp crease on the fly with a borrowed bill without too much fiddling.
4. Use foreign paper currency and justify it in your presentation.
5. Use something other than a bill.
Using a borrowed bill is probably the strongest scenario in terms of apparent fairness and impact but magic is all about being creative in method and presentation. Often, making something your own makes it stronger in your hands because now it's you!

Coming from a background of an Analyst/Detective,.. I would say, if the card ‘appears to go through’ a printed piece of paper called a $ dollar, - then it necessarily follows the effect should be able to be worked with ANY piece of easily folded, & creased 'paper like object' that you wish to have take the place of the paper dollar. For instance, a table napkin would be impromptu,- appear to be an impulsive choice? Thickness/size etc. could be added, or taken away, dependant upon the amount of layers to the paper Napkin. I just put this thought ‘out there’ but, it is from my Irish Logic. ( feedback appreciated )-Kevin, - Gippsland Australia
