LIQUID MONEY
By Ben Williams

Do you love pen thru note effects, but don't like gimmicks or set ups? Maybe you have checked out other methods only to find out they have complicated or impractical handlings that put you off performing them, leaving you waiting for a method that doesn't involve any of these downfalls.
Ben Williams' Liquid Money is the solution. A simple, direct, easy handling of the pen thru note effect that is 100% impromptu! This is the perfect effect for a bar or club, walk-around or if you just wanted to freak out a cashier in a shop!


The Effect:
The performer borrows a note of ANY currency and very cleanly and openly folds it in half lengthwise; the performer then borrows a pen from a spectator and inserts it into the fold. The note is shown to be surrounding the pen, then slowly and smoothly the pen melts through the centre of the note, both are then instantly handed straight back to the spectator for inspection!

The Review:
Ok, I purchased this the other day, as I love effective, impromptu effects.
And this one, I have to say, did not let me down.
the effect is simple and direct, the objects are borrowed... the effect does exactly what it says on the tin.

Presentation:
Ben states right at the start that you don't really need any patter with it, but he likes to as an added convincer... I do not feel his patter is very good, but that could be my own personal taste... its easy to come up with your own anyway.

Mechanics:
The handlings of this effect are soo easy, a five year old could do it, but that's what makes it so effective, because it doesn't use any 'obscure moves'... you put the pencil in the bill, and pull it through it.. the bill is unharmed.. that's it!

Angles:
The angles of this are very very good, every now and again, you need to reduce the angle size, to protect the secret but it still looks natural... as long as you don't have someone staring over your shoulder, then your fine!

psychological aspect:
The trick uses some conditioning to make the effect... well.. more effective, the conditioning is easy, and again, natural.

Overall:
This is a great effect, and I'm glad I purchased it, ill definatly use it in impromptu situations.

This is my first review, sorry if its a little mish mash.
