Could this be used to turn a penny into a dime using a ma****ic penny ] covering a dime?

I have in my crayon version covered the m.g..t with something soft to stop any sound.
I would imagine you could do that with the pencil on this too 🙂

Is the pencil a neccesary part of the effect? I like the idea of pressing around the coin when it's under the paper, to create a 3D indentation on the paper, and then pressing/smoothing that indentation out for the vanish, almost as if it's being 'pressed' into the table from under the paper - would that work?

With a fat oblong crayon for imprints it absolutely does 🙂

What I like about this is the fact that the penny is clearly under the paper as you are making a visible impression of it without touching it with your fingers. You could use something other than a pencil like a crayon but just pressing on the paper over the penny won't be seen. Furthermore, your fingers would be touching the penny. Not good. The illusion is that the penny is never touched by anything other than the tip of the pencil.

Everything works just fine the way it is. The only thing I did change now is to use a pack of yellow post-it notes. That seems to make it a tad bit easier to do as the paper is anchored to the table. So instead of pulling out a single 3x3 piece of paper, grab the pack of post-it notes and then peel one off and proceed as normal.

You could use just your fingers but you’d need a gimmick similar to what Axel Hecklau uses for Just a Cup. But I agree this version looks better with the pencil.

With my crayon version you do not touch the coin at all with your fingers you cleanly rub the impression with the crayon and when you take the crayon away everything is cleanly done and stolen away for you 🙂

Thanks! I love that idea.
