There's a very nice chapter on IT work in the new David Regal book. Just a couple of effects, but they've changed how I think about levitation effects. Probably not the first stop for a beginner, but put it on your list.

One hint from the book: try to work out moves in which the levitating object moves (or appears to) in the opposite direction from your movements. This can be very deceptive in dispelling an audience's guess as to how your animating the object.

Also look at Tommy Wonder's essay on the Zombie in his book--many of his thoughts on the Zombie can be applied to any levitation.

Get Ammars ETMTM or LeClairs Whos Afraid of IT.

I just bought these dvd's and there great. Tonight I'm going to watch who's afraid of IT. The reaction on peoples faces, when you float something right in front of them, can't be beat! My Ammar dvd's came with a free thread boss at a great price.

Excellent choice. LeClair's DVD has some great moves and Ammar covers not only moves but also harvesting and types of thread etc.

Hi
The Ammar and LeClair DVD are a "GOLD MINE" ! One of my best magic purchases ! The LeClair hookup is perfect for me. My first hook up, many years ago was Kennedy's floating bill. With LeClair's method I can be prepared all night,as long as my IT stays intact. I have been wearing the hookup, Ammar's sugestion, during the day, when I'm not doing magic. I've been keeping the IT intact longer than I thought possible.

Ralph,
I know you will get a lot of pleasure out of your IT. I love the response I get whenever I use mine. I still reference these DVD's ever so often because there may be something I have overlooked or maybe what didn't work before does work for me now. There is nothing quite as magical as something floating in mid air without any apparent hookups.

Good Luck and enjoy.

I would go for leclairs book the art of invisible thread. I prefer it to the video.
The world we live in is even a greater illusion than magic.

Regarding the wax topic:
IMHO the best wax on the market is the Mesika wax. Comes in a small tin
with around 150 ready to go pieces. Also worth looking at is Michael Ammar's Dexter's Flesh Coloured Putty.
Good luck Amigo!
