Topic: Tip on the Healed and Sealed Can?
Message: Posted by: Eirik (Jan 24, 2003 12:51PM)
Anders Modèn`s Healed and Sealed booklet just dropped down in my mailbox here the other day,
I've been through it a couple of times, so I bought a couple of six-packs of coke to try it out, but a repeated error occured.
After it's crushed, I have a problem restoring it without soda squirting out on the sides(?).
Any tips on making the emptyness of the can easier? :cheers:

Talk to Anders. His email is on the manuscript. He is a very helpful man.

You can't get any better than that!

Anders himself is ready to answer the question! He has a great effect, and obviously cares about those who bought it.

I love Healed and Sealed! And it is great to see Anders join us here!

Welcome Anders!

I also have a problem, I have not performed it yet but I am wondering what you use to show the can open. It reforms perfectly but I don't know how well the napkin idea will work. Pm me if this is too revealing :pepsi:

Check the end of the manuscript for the alternate version without the napkin. That's what I have to use sometimes.

Agree Christian, it`s a good alternative handling. I have only performed this once till now, but if I may ask, what do you think is the best way to "fix" the black hole? Napkin peice or a lighter?

I have the Bat and use it to seal the can. You could use any strong Bat like object if you know what it is. I wear a long sleeve and strap it around my wrist. Cut and stick a thin piece of something on top that the Bat can pull off. Don't want to say too much more without giving away the secrets.

I would have to say the key to this effect is making it look totally impromptu. I planted a can in our recycling box at work then gathered everyone around. The reactions were great. Some accused me of having two cans and switching them somehow.

Sounds like a nice alternative, I have also got the bat, so I'll try to get hold of a thin piece of something to use, and see how it goes.

Although I have not performed this effect for an audience what I have found to work for me as far as a replacement to the napkin, I have scanned and made several copies of an open coke can.

I have shared it with a friend that healed and sealed he said it looked real enough. Give it a try.

What works well for me instead of the napkin is tissue paper in the appropriate color, available most any place that sells gift wrap.

I made a cardboard template of the right size as a pattern and prepare 8 or 10 at a time. Moisture is a good adhesive, looks great from 3 feet away, and is easy to remove when the time is right.

I keep all the supplies needed in a little hard plastic case. Takes up very little pocket space, I always have my supplies with me when going any place where canned beverages may be served. Never fails to get tremendous reactions!!

gman - inspired idea. Don't suppose you could email me a jpg of the scan - I don't have a scanner myself?
Kind regards

Bat? You're missing the point here. De-Pressurize! And to stop the spilliage palm a small sponge, I do this and it absorbs quite nicely and since the audience doesn't see it, there's no funny business suspected as with the napkin.

That's my two cents. :)

Along with bilz, I too, would be grateful if anyone with a jpeg of an open coke can would be generous enough to send me a copy?

I think the lighter works the best and looks great.
