I hate the new Cdn bills. They all have a see-through window now, so I can hide anything...tricks like extreme burn and nightshades don't really work anymore.

Hi Magic KL,

Perhaps you could develop some patter around the idea that you were recently in the U.S. and have some bills left over from your visit. In that way, it would make sense that you show U.S. bills and could still perform Extreme Burn.

Regards, Steve

There are several alternatives, but nothing beats being able to use your own country's currency.
Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.

Oops, I meant to say "I can't" in my comment.

Thanks for the great idea, Steve.

Danny, I guess you hate the new bills, too. It would be nice for them to consult with us magicians first before they bring out the new design!! Wishful thinking~

Do you guys use the handout method? Or do you just hold on to the bills after the change?

So hands up if your first attempt to make this was a disaster? Smile

Luckily my first attempt was with magazine cuttings and canadian tire $0.05 bills.

I brought over some copydex (from the uk) which everyone seems to suggest over and above rubber cement. However the copydex seems to 'bunch up' when drying ad seems quick thick (even when applied in a thin layer...which I know doesn't quite make sense, but users of copydex might know what I'm getting at).

any canadians out there who have put this together using local supplies?

Rubber Cement is definitely the way to go. I grew up with Copydex, hate the stuff! I had to pick apart my first attempt, but nailed it with the second go.

Such a shame though, Fire Starter. There's something about changing scraps of paper into £100 in twenty quid notes that really gets people, y'know?

It's still a tidy amount of cash, so I think the effect appeals to us on a venal level.

Most I suspect use Elmers because of availability which works well.

I have also used the type of cement used for fixing punctures in tires - Xtra-Seal Chemical Vulcanizing Cement. It is a little thinner when it dries and also works well. But it is a little bit more expensive

Can someone advise what the preferred choice is now with UK money as the lottery slips are a bit wider and longer than £20 notes

I use £10 notes and they look and work great with UK lotto tickets

I find the narrower the notes the easier it is to cover all the angles.

You can do this with £20 notes but I find I have to be more careful with the displays due to the width.

I actually use Dollar bills which are nice and narrow which means I can cover everything very well.
