Hi,

I'm looking for some visual tricks. Please let me know the most visual tricks you own and perform (they must be workable)...also state where they can be obtained from.

Thank you.

Ok, here's a list of a couple of the effects I use which I think are visual:

STIGMATA by Wayne Houchin. Ellusionist
Sinful. Most magic retailers.
Liquid Metal. Penguin Magic
Pyro Perception.
Rubber Made (Daniel Garcia project). Penguinmagic, Magictricks.co.uk, various retailers
Ring Thing by Garrett Thomas (learnt it from Gregory Wilson in action) Magictricks.co.uk, various other.
Twisted (Daniel Garcia project). Penguin Magic, Magictricks.co.uk, various other.
Cesaral Melting Point. Hocus-Pocus, various others.
Passing Thru by Kevin Parker. kevinparkerproductions.com

There's a few for you. Most stuff by Daniel Garcia is very visual. What type of tricks are you into?

Oh, Key Accessory and Ice From Water are both very good also. Ice from water is very visual, and it can be worked into a street performance. Both of these are available from hocus-pocus.com.

These are great- it's a nice list for people who want to see and perform really visual magic.

Have you checked out my P-PIK Prediction Cards? Check it out and see what you think. Click on the link in my signature. I have an online video that shows the visual portion. If you like it you can purchase it from me, or I provide a list of reputable magic dealers who carry the effect.

Misled, one of the most visual effects in magic. There are tons more, but that is always the first one that comes to mind. Watch the melt-thru in the mirror if you need convincing. You will say to yourself, "How did I do that?!"
The great trouble with magicians is the fact that they believe when they have bought a certain trick or piece of apparatus, and know the method or procedure, that they are full-fledged mystifiers. -- Harry Houdini

I've been using Ring Thing for a while and now that the dvd is out I picked it up and added a few moves to my routine. I keep it short and sweet and it always gets amazing reactions. It's purely visual and looks like trick photography, I highly recommend it. Check the demos. You can see them at ellusionist.com. It's by Garrett Thomas

Tough call on this because it really, for me, depends on the audience. For some audiences, it's the Chop Cup. One of the greatest inventions of all time - Al Wheatley should be sanctified for it.

For other situations, it's the Mis-Made Bill, which I use in a double bill routine.

And for other audiences, it's the Linking Rings, which is STILL one of the most visually stunning things you can do IF you perform SLOWLY on at least one unlink move.

I can also support the linking rings. Chris Capehart's routine is great for street performances, too. The color changing silks is also a practical, visual effect that is very beautiful to the spectators.

I would agree that Stigmata and Sinful are visual. But are we forgetting about color changes? If done correctly, its the most visual move.
For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not, none will suffice.

Well I just got the download for Passing thru by Kevin Parker and it was very interesting. The illusion is GREAT! One of the best eye catchers that I have come across in a long time. So seemingly impromptu yet baffling because the method in a layperson's (as well as some magicians) eye is that it has to be some new technology or out of this world device but its so simple!!! Its simple yet, and most importantly, creative and that's what I like. Even knowing the method still shocks you when looking down at the "penetration". In my opinion any trick/illusion that mystifies even the performer performing it, is worth the effort and for this item... definitely worth the price. My rating is 9 out of 10.

Hundy500

Bizzare twist

or amazingly the most stunning reaction out of all the money tricks that I perform the classic bill switch gets them everytime! I have received stronger reactions from the classic switch than I have hundy500.
I have a theory as to why that is, but now is not the time to explain.

Credit Card (both sides) to playing card (both sides). I bought it online from a store in the UK. Makes for a nice visually change on a video demo.
