HN Review 17: The Paper Rose Video – Docc Hilford

AD:

In about ten minutes, this private video lesson will teach you Docc Hilford's impromptu method for making a paper rose, complete with a leaf, from an ordinary cocktail napkin. This is the same bit of business used by pros around the world to upgrade from Coach to First Class, receive superlative service in hotels and restaurants, and generally charm any lady, anywhere.
Our friend Richard Webster used it to save a cruise ship gig, when he discovered that none of his audience could speak English, and he could speak no Chinese!
This is not a trick, but rather one of the most delightful bits of business around. As Docc Hilford tells it, he was initiated into the art by an ancient in Paris — Texas, that is. He has taken this simple (when you know how) bit of business, and turned it into something of a trademark.
As with any great bit of business, there is more to it than just knowing how to do it - you need the correct presentation. Without the right shtick, you're just juggling a piece of paper! On this video, Docc shows you how he does it, giving you the kind of input you need to devise your own presentation.
This is not a trick or a mental miracle. It is not a cure for cancer. It is one of the most charming bits of business that you can add to your repertoire. You can have Docc's Paper Rose for just $24.95.



REVIEW:

As usual, unbelievably overpriced video from the Floras gang. The patter is not particularly convincing, but the folding procedure is clearly explained and – let’s face it – the effect always get a great reaction from our beloved ladies.


Overall rating: below average (buy it only if you can’t find the effect anywhere else!)

Thanks for the review.

You say to only buy this if you can't find the effect anywhere else so could anyone recommend a good source for this effect?

Thanks Smile

Here are a couple of sources FREE on the web:
http://members.aol.com/linnyandmo/rose.html

http://www.recipegoldmine.com/crafts/crafts33.html

This one is one of the best sites. Show how the rose can be changed to a turtle, racing car,or space ship.

Magicbuilder,

The last website you mention is great - probably I should have saved $24.95 + shipment

Glad to be of service. I did a search last year to save buying the video myself.

Nowadays..... too many videos and props out in the market... However, I think 78.45% of them shouldn't have published.

I remember Michael Close has once said something like this before, but he did the calculation wrong.

Yah, this seems to be a cash grab like Cardini's cards. I was sad that Cardini's famous trick was reduced to a peice of junk like that trick.

And boy do the ladies love these !!!!!!!
More than a real rose, because you made it!!!
Sometimes I even add a little rose water scent!!!
It's not the size of the wand,
but the magic in it !

I use the lightest material I can find and make the rose, then float it to their hand.

If an ugly girl with a BIG head at Rock'in Rodeo then asks for one, I'll blow my nose with it and toss it to her. Don't want to send out mixed signals!

Just for info: I think the Paper Rose routine is also used on one of Docs Bar Magic vids, possibly Vol 3??

However Magicbuilders info is as good as your gonna find
