Hello,

I would like to know where to find out about David Blaine's arm through the glass.

I saw this on his Vertigo special. He (stole) a watch off a lady's wrist and it appeared in a Jewelry Display. He reached through the glass (covering with a newspaper) and retrieved the watch...

I don't know how... (a couple ideas) but not sure, so I would like to know..

Is there a reason? Or do you just do every effect Blaine performs? This trick is around $700 to obtain and the guy that makes them just doesn't do them for everyone. Besides, the way Blaine did it would be to impractical for normal use.

Think Tenyo Glass Penetration on an immense scale. Also consider how many jewelry stores have you seen that keep stock in their windows after hours?

Ok..

you talk as if I want to steal his effect, when really I'm just trying to learn more. Is it wrong to learn more as a young magician, or shall I stick to myself? Why can't I know how effects are done, (I'm not going to tell, I DO keep to the magicians code!!!.) lol.

You could present that in a nicer way than making him feel stupid.

It's ok. We've all been there. Actually from what I've been told is that it cost David Blaine a lot of money to do that effect on T.V.

You might want to consider Tenyos, as said above.

Or just use a search engine and see what magic shops offering it pop up. But I can say it won't be cheap. If some card through window are over 200 dollars, then penetrating a glass window using your hand and a newspaper to retrieve something from inside leaving no hole will be way over that.

Now correct me if I am wrong. Was Blaine’s arm thru glass illusion created and manufactured by John Gaughan?


Thanks,
Mike

Can anyone give me the official name or inventory number of the Tenyo Glass Penetration? I've looked through the official Tenyo site and haven't found it yet.

Penetration frame. Enough said Smile
...think not that all wisdom is in your school. You may have studied other paths,but, it is important to remember that no matter who you are or where you come from, there is always more to learn.

The store front was, in fact, built by Johnny Gaughan. It was in a Hollywood area when filmed.

Someone said something about $700 cost? I would guess ten times that.

To the guy that wants to know how it is done... forget it, it has been done. Invent your own new illusions. Smile

Doug Henning did a sponge ball/silk thru a 1 foot square mirror for Brian Gumble on the today show in the late 70's. It looked awesome, and I think it is being sold again today. Check Hank Lee's website. Smile

There's also a "Golden Penetration Frame"
Version on the market with a metal frame...
Maybe it looks not as cheap and suspicious as the plastic tenyo version...
but it also doesnt't costs only a few bucks
(no, it costs about 50 - 75 $, depending at which magic dealer you buy it..)

Here you can see a picture

I have no idea, but focus on the watch steal first. Pulling a stunt like that is great if you pull it off but you seem shady if you get busted.

Check this site:

BTW..

There is certainly nothing wrong with wanting to learn as many methods to as many tricks as you can. It's good to have a large inventory of knowledge if only so you don't go reinventing the wheel.

The trick Blaine did is custom made. Its not an improtu trick. It requiers a lot of set-up, plus a lot of money. This is a trick that has do be done on a stage, or in front a camera with a lot of edeting.

Got the perfect method...do anywhere anytime with any store window...all it costs is a pair of tights, some mode of fast transport (ask a friend with a fast car), a brick, and enough bottle...oh and the desire for a long holiday AHMD (at her majesties discretion)...fascetious...yes, fatuous...most definitely,...funny...hmmmmmmmmmn
