Effect: Flare

By: AlphaMagic

Price: $34.95 inc world wide shipping


Format: DVD

What is Flare?

Flare is an effect that will allow you to cause a cigarette to light itself.

What if I don't smoke?

You can use the principle to cause other things to self ignite.

So what exactly does it look like?

The performer removes a cigarette and puts the pack away. He/she holds the cigarette up at the finger tips and concentrates. Suddenly smoke begins to flow from the tip and then 'FLASH' it ignites.

Is it usable in the real world?

Absolutely, this is something that is definitely a real world, workable effect.

Is it impromptu?

It's not impromptu, but the set-up is very quick and easy and you could have multiple things ready to self ignite.

Will anything be difficult to obtain?

No, you get the gimmick etc with the DVD, and everything can be found for very little.

My thoughts on this: This is something I am very happy with, and something that I knew I must have the moment I read the description and watched the demo vid. The method is very clever and can be used to make other things self ignite (so non-smokers like myself will still get a lot out of this). This stands out as something different than the common card trick etc, and I am very much having fun with this and the effect is amazing.


The DVD goes over everything clearly. No words are spoken, but its shot in a way that everything is extremely easy to understand and learn from. The quality isn't the best, but it is thourough and clear and I see no problems here.


This is a great product, and a fantastic effect. If you like the idea of seemingly causing a cigarette etc to suddenly ignite using the power of your mind (or what ever direction you want to take this in) then don't hesitate and go buy it. I completely recommend it and I can confidently say you won't be disappointed.

This effect is for those of 18yrs and over

Vito Lupo used to to this in his shows. I went to one of his lectures years ago, in which he performed and explained this effect. Yes it is very magical looking for sure. Would probably work great in conjunction with Smokey Magic by Trevor Duffy.

Quick question, can the cigarette be smoked in the end?

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.
