I recently bought the Lynetta Welch "Beer Bottle Gizmo". Unfortunately the gimmick to hold bottles didn't come with detailed instructions or a dvd. All it came with was a very brief description of the effect on the back of the package.

After some time, I've been practicing it right from the instructions off the back of the package and the video off Lynetta's -Fabric manipulation site. After performing for some friends and family, the effect looks real visual and clean. I still want to see an instructional dvd or read some literature on some performance tips.

I know David Stone has some really visual and clean bottle productions also. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as performance tips are concerned? Or does anyone have any information from experience? I've been really wanting to perform a really clean bottle production for some time now, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Anthony Cap

Bob Read published his method in great detail in Genii a couple of years back. Look for it...It's really good!

I have always had one question for guys doing the Bob Read method. I have asked Mike Caveny and Bob Read and several others.

The main problem is how to keep your pants up after you remove the bottle. Suspenders can foul up the steal. Bob admited it was a good question that he had not thought about.

Either use trousers with a 'sans-a'belt' elastic side piece, which are designed for men who fluctuate in waist size. or an elastic belt. The belt allows for the bottle but contracts to hold the pants up after said production.

Similarly, and elastic backed cummerbund could work for formal wear

I figured that would be a solution. I just found it odd that this fact has never been addressed by anyone lecturing on this. To me, it seems a very important part of the methodology.

I have found a very good gimmick for a bottle production and use it in every show.
I first saw this on one of the David Stones tapes and I made one for me. If I remember the name correctly it was the SPLASH gimmick, but I can be wrong.

That's correct. David Stone was using the Splash gimmick, at least when I saw him lecture, years ago.

Just bought the Splash Bottle myself and have been practicing the balloon appearance of a bottle. So far,so good......It is a really well made piece of equipment and the balloon gives really good cover.

In my opinion, I don't like the bottle balloon production. It looks kinda obvious, when you tape it and seen in slow-motion. I think the production of a bottle in silk is more magical. I have always used it when I let inspect the silk to do some trick Lets say:"Theres nothing hiding inside this silk, right? Let her inspect it and then: "You didńt saw anything suspicios? Not even this bottle?(and I produce a bottle)

Fred-Erik,

I agree with you. The first couple of times I watched David Stone perform the bottle production it seemed awesome, the I saw Lynetta Welch's and hers blew his out of the water. If you guys watch the Lynetta Welch bottle production, I think you would agree with me that the bottle production from a silk is much better.

I do have a question though. Has anyone used flash paper in a bottle production, or heard or saw of someone using flashpaper in a bottle production? I would love to play around with the idea.

I think Kevin James does that in Perrier with a Twist. Not sure how it looks.

Also, the pants falling down thing might be a body shape issue. I've never had a problem and find it difficult to imagine what the problem might be...

The advantage of the Splash Bottle Production is that you can produce a full bottle. I think this isn't possible with the Lynetta Welch Beer Bottle Gizmo.

Concerning the pants falling down problem, I prefere to use the Bottle from Silk Production aswell.
