Topic: Smudged Bill?
Message: Posted by: Drew Manning (Jun 14, 2007 07:34PM)
Any one know of a routine or method to smudge the ink on a bill and have it appear as if ink is on your hand?

At work I handle cash on a daily basis and from time to time some of my regualr customers will joke about how I need to be careful with the money they gave me beacuse the ink is still wet. That got me to thinking about the fun I could have with this, but I am not really a money magic kind of guy, so my knowledge inthis area is very limited.

Any ideas?

If you have photoshop, you may be able to do something with that.

HAHA Drew,

That is funny because I have a routine where you say that (That the bill is still wet) to the spectator and then place your thumb over the "100" (or 20 or whatever bill you are using) and then show it on your thumb.

Not exactly the same, but close.

How about getting some real ink?

Then all you'd have to do is dab a little on a fingertip and actually wipe the bill, smudging ink on it and smearing it on your finger!

That's a fun sounding gag.

Mark.

I think that would work just fine. The people who say this to me are regulars who know I;m a bit off any way, and even if I just get a raised eyebrow, that's good enough for me :lol: Care to share via PM?

I'd be extremely careful about photoshop copy or modification of anything that looks like it is copied from U.S. paper money, the U.S. Treasury Dept. does not take kindly to that at all.

You would be printing it onto a bill.

How would you present it as its own effect?
