I just recently started to get back into magic with pens. I am trying to formulate a routine with a normal white and black bic pen for close up. I know recapped, strike vanishes with coins, and I am trying to get some other material. could you guys help me try to broaden my knowledge of magic with pens. vanishes, appearances, cap jumping, point jumping,. . .

I like f!ip stick a lot with pens. That combined with recapped and strike vanishes can make for a strong routine.

Hi,

I use a variation of Gregory Wilson's Recap revisited with Andrew Mayne’s up the nose pen/ pencil. Pending on the time will also throw in the Stealth Bic Pen and Banacheck's PK Pen. Pending on the crowd I may also add a touch of mentalism with Right Write.

Ohh yea and don't forget the Sharpie which could be endless.

salute,

Eric

Rune Klan has a routine called Impromptu Hitman... It is on the Talk About Tricks DVD set. It's a coin and pen routine. Awesome stuff. Plus look for Rick Merrill material. It's featured and published by Antinomy I believe. He won FISM by doing magic with coins and Sharpies but much of his material is adaptable with a BIC Pen. I always carry a pen with me. Recapped and Hitman are among my favorite routines to perform. Not just favorite pen routines, but my favorite in general. Also look for any coin in pen cap routine... THere's a few out there by people like Michael Ammar, probably David Williamson, and there's an awesome routine by Dave Neighbors in his Japan Lecture Notes. HE's a member, you can PM him about grabbing those notes.

Also look into Charlie Fry(spelling?) Material. I'm pretty sure he's pulled a few pens out his nose or something like that. GOOD LUCK.

If you find the right black & white BIC, you can also use it for a pen thru quarter.

Michael Ammar has a coin in cap routine. There are dozens out there. Williamson has a fun version of coin in cap... You can actually hear the coin rattling inside the cap. great fun, not too hard to do. I won't tip it here but it's on one of his DVDs.

I use re-cap all the time. First off, I use the pen for a magic wand in an earlier effect. Then it's a natural thing to start doing magic with the pen. I first do a flip stick vanish and re-production to get their attention, following up with Re-cap. If the spectator is receptive, I sometimes hand out the pen as a souvenier.. in fact, my Bic pens are imprinted with my name, phone number and website address... a great hand out (under 20 cents cost) when you have a prospective client.

There are also Bic style mood pens available. They can be lots of fun for doing magic as well. hope these suggestions are helpful!

Mediocrity is greatly under rated!

For a nice recap & flip stick routine, thre's a video of Cyrill on youtube that will give you some ideas.

Jim Ryan has a nice ring off rope/onto wand(or pen) effect. You can find it in the new Enc of Rope Tricks (p324), or a related effect in Wilson's Complete Course (p307).

Then you could do a cords of Phantasia type effect.

Just to add to my own thread. . . I have actually been using the bic pen caps for some cigarette manipulation. to end with different colored caps in between your fingers is just great.

Levitation or Pk moving with loops and the bic pen goes over well for me. Especially with a borrowed pen.

Has any body seen this or an affect like this that doesn't use thread, wires, or magnets? and is it any good?

Hi Jeff.

I think you would really enjoy Compression (DVD).

"Visually Smash A Bic Pen Into One Half Its Original Size"

It will become available this month through online magic retailers throughout the U.S. and Europe.
