Where can I learn vanishing a box, about the size of a CD case. Is it possible to vanish a box handed to you by the spectator?

I don't have Mark Wilson's encyclopedia, so that's off the list.

There are lots of ways using various boxes but the cleanest method is probably with a topit

And make sure you wear loose clothing with a small box such as a CD. Other objects like a lemon, you can wear a more fitting, normal clothing, that's my experience.

I have to agree that lapping is great. It is what I've usually done when somebody asks me to "do something" or "make this disappear." When a spectator asks you to perform this miracle you'll find you're usually sitting - most people will eat/talk around a table rather than stand.

One caution with lapping though - make sure your lap is in a position so the object doesn't fall. Stumbles may happen with different objects, so be ready with a good "line" to give them just in case. Smile

Good luck!

What if, like me, your lap is already occupied? Smile
