Just curious what substance folks use for the voodoo ash / palm effect. What do you find leaves the best mark?

Actually not! Cremated bodies are too coarse. Not really ashes but just charred, ground up bones.

Well, you could stick a bone splinter in their hand, I guess

Well, you wouldn't know it if you hadn't tried it. Scratches the arm like crazy.

Tried that as well, but it is too expensive because it takes more then 100 cremated pixies to do the effect once. lol

Seriously, we need something that is readily available, has no unpleasant smell and WILL NOT IRRITATE people's skin. After many years of experimentation, I have found that the ash from incense sticks works perfectly and is what I use for my Hero effect using my Pocket Printing Press. Cheers.

Thanks Chris! that's a great idea, the ash is very fine, sticks well, leaves a dark mark and is readily available. I would never have thought to use it.

I thought everyone used cigarette ash--or am I thinking of a different effect?
I'm selling my hardcover autographed limited edition copy of Jerome Finley's "Thought Veil"

PM me for info.

Some use lipstick and change the presentation to a blood spot.

In recent years I have been using women's eye make up or shadow, black or brown is good. This comes in a small clear square receptacle, you can put foam adhesive on the back of the container and stick it anywhere for easy access. The pop off lid can easily be replaced for the next performance.

Sounds ideal for icy driveways in winter. Could be the start of a new small business for you. j/k

I saw this presentation on a French video by Gerard Bakner, if I'm not mistaken?
