Topic: Vanishing fickle fire
Message: Posted by: ruijorge (Aug 1, 2005 08:11PM)
Hello everyone,

I have just seen a magician (dont know his name) doing the fickle fire with his right hand and immediately showed his hand completely empty.
He had no sleeves. It was very clean.

Is this a product marketed?



And it was at The plus grand cabaret du monde at the TV% channel

Are you from France?

Le Plus Grand Cabaret Du Monde!
The Most Grand Cabaret Show in the World!

Oh, sorry, no I don't know anything, er um, maybe he used a smaller version of the gimmick and put a pull of some sort on it?

I'm betting it was not Fickle Fire he used, but Jim Pace's [i] Inviso-torch [/i].
Only the one hand actually held the fire, correct ? Not both while separated.
Inviso-torch is pretty darn nifty. Try a search on it here, and then, on Google.

Inviso torch I think that produces a huge flame, isn't it?
The magician name is Cyril.

Anyone else?

If it was Cyril, them most probably the gimmick is his own invention, or a modification on fickle fire.
Could it be that his hand was covered with flamable gel and he just set it on fire with a lighter and ditched away the lighter?

It was a Sakoh gimmick called fire to silk and you can get it from UGM.

If it was Cyril, I agree it probably was something of his own or modified. He is one of the most talented and inventive magicians there are at the moment. He is a member of T.H.E.M, so if you want to see more of him, you can on that

It is a regular fickle fire gimmick with one small modification. Hint: Think "Fickle Nickle" Also watch the hand after it "vanishes" You will see a rather bold ditch.

Diddo, Norrabmagic... its difficult to do, the angles have got to be tuff... I can't remember who or where but there was a publication of this same vanish, but It was of a salt holding gimmick for a salt poor...
