Late Spring or early summer, Jerome and I are still writing. The photos are pretty amazing and you can do the same thing once you learn our techniques. When you do the Card in the air, people are going to put you in the league of those two well known TV street magicians. It just doesn't seem possible to a lay person that such a thing can be done. Unless you sold you soul LOL.

I thought I'd chime in here for a moment . . .

Cloud sculpting can be very powerful with objects as Devin has done. Others have ventured here as well, including another great thinker and performer that I respect very much and who also frequents this forum.

With that said, I prefer to work with words and the names and faces of loved ones when I do cloud sculpting. I regularly use a powerful psychological effect in which the spectator THINKS of a number and chooses a cloud, only to SEE their number appear in the cloud! No questions are asked, nothing is said, and I know which number is being thought of. (And no, it's not written down either Smile )

Besides the name or face of a friend or loved one, the above routine is the one I use most when sculpting.

These are not pipe dreams, but REAL WORLD miracles. The reader will get both sides of the technique and performance, from Devin's perspective, as well as my own.

This material, instruction and technique can also be used to great effect for things other than cloud busting. We will touch on this as well.

Regards,
Jerome Finley.

Just thought I'd chime in again and say that when it comes to Cloud Sculpting, Jerome and I are from two different schools of thought. My methods are totally different from his methods. This is one area where we were not on the same page. He has some interesting approaches and methods different from the ones I use.

My methods are of what Al Mann or Doc Shields would have used. Jerome on the other hand is going more with a Hilford/Kenton approach. So the reader will have two schools of thought on this to study and learn from.

Oh please try to release this late Spring, or really really really early summer. I'd love to pull it off and film this to tons of people at Wild Waves! lol

Forgot to mention, Jerome has some thoughts (and he does this in the real world) where the face of a loved one appears in the sky. Talk about freaking someone out!
This idea was new to me and I haven't had a chance to try it myself yet, but I am looking forward to doing this.

Blindside, this would be perfect for Wild Waves, when I work outdoor festivals I will often use the card in the sky revelation. It will stay there for a while and after your show people will walk around and point to the MIRACLE in the sky that you created!
Since the card can be seen from anywhere in the park or festival you have a solid reputation maker. Once you filmed this, you could load it up to YOU TUBE.

Hello Magicbuilder and Jerome,

Does the cloud busting techniques relate to pareidolia ?

I like your ideas, and will for sure get your book in time...

As soon as I discovered this thread, I googled the subject and found numerous sites, forums, and scientific articles about this...

Totally outstanding!!!

Thanks!

Ok that is a loaded question. The cloud vanishing and appearing have nothing to do with Pareidolia. However some of Jerome's techniques for seeing a loved one in the cloud has some background in Pareidolia. My techniques on the other hand do not rely on this. It's obvious from the photos I've posted that you can plainly see a fish, the A of Diamonds, etc. You don't have to rely on your imagination much. But yes some of Jerome's techniques rely on Pareidolia and he has extensively worked with the power of suggestion and Pareidolia to create some incredible cloud sculpturing in the minds of the spectators. He even shows you how to apply Pareidolia techniques to a group so everyone sees the same thing.

Guys, CONGRATULATIONS!

I knew about Jerome having some VERY GOOD thoughts on the subject, and I'm sure Devin has some other equally good thoughts on this...

This will be A MUST HAVE BOOK!
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!

This really is beginning to sound like the next big thing for people to buy.
I mean, when reading about it first I was thinking..well, impromptu maybe..but highly impractical.

But now we hear it's practical as well ? Definite purchase!

Ordinary just is just NOT good enough these days. You will not be an ordinary performer when you do these things.
