Hello

I'm familiar with the Paul Harris effect where you draw the glasses on the the bill and they move up to the forehead. (uses a small cheap to make gimmick) Is this impromptu nightshades?. If so..... and I could be wrong. But is there a a non impromptu nightshades.

Any pointers?

Thanks

Hi Paul,

Yes...the effect you are describing is called "Improv Nightshades" and is written in Paul Harris's book "Art of Astonishment - Vol. 1." This is a fantastic effect.

The original effect, which has not been on the market for years, was called "Nightshades" and used a gimmick built into a pen. It looked good but could not be done "on the fly" or impromptu, and could not be easily handed out for inspection without a sw**ch.

If you don't already do the impromptu version, check it out. It "packs small, plays big" and really knocks the spectator out!

You'll definitely have fun with it. Mark. Smile

Thanks for that, I'd never heard of the other pen version, but agree the improv version is brilliant.
