Hi again,

O.K, I am after a new effect to add to my routine. i would love to be able to levitate a small item between my hands, without the use of invisible thread. Any ideas, I already have a gimmick with a suction cup on the end of a thumb tip, that sort of thing, but more discrete.

Any help would be brilliant!

Learn the muscle pass and make the coin float up into your other hand!

If you don't like threads or suction cup-direct hookups you don't leave much to work with! Levitations, especially close up are darn hard... there are just so many physical realities that everyone is well familiar with. "Discrete" is in the eye of the beholder... so as long as you can disguise the method or lead the audience around it, it is discrete... even if it is a fork lift behind the curtain! Some of the floating card effects use some pretty bold methods (like a hunking hole in the deck into which one inserts a finger!)... but they can play just fine with the proper scene setting.
It might be more fruitful to pick a method that fits what you want to accomplish visually, then work on the presentation to cover the weaknesses of the method.

Thanks there, the muscle pass is now an important part of my repertoire. I can make it look as if it is floating up to the other hand, almost every time. Very effective!

Thanks again
