This has potential!
I perform 'In A Flash' by Jay Sankey and this could be nicely incorporated into the routine...
with the spectator then lighting the flash paper on top of the deck. Hmmmm... I think this
could really work!
I'm going to Blackpool on Friday so will check it out then. (the control over the delay being the main issue)
We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have not yet deceived us...

Mark, I presume the extra prep required would be understood after watching the DVD?

I agree, an unused match would be as good, if not better from a specs point of view.


Just to clarify, there is no mention of this on the DVD, you would need to do a little more prep though.

I personally think the re-light is the best, and it does not have to be done right away either! You could come up with your own routine where you light the match during a routine that uses flash paper (or another justified reason) finish whatever routine you are doing, THEN do Combustion with the used match, minutes after previously lighting it!


Doing the re-light minutes later makes this VERY appealing.

In the rare case you see someone who lights his cigarette with a match,
can you use this with a "borrowed" match?
It looks really good.
Its not something I would not perform anywhere but in the right situations this must be stunning!

I received the following answer from World Magic shop about using chemicals:

Aha! Pictures of naked women then? I thought so.

It can be any amount of time later! Would definitely trump the relighting candle theory for any awkward spec's!

I think so, yes! If, once you have it, you need any help, drop me a PM. I have to say that it was not its intended handling though!

This could also be done, although you would have to come up with your own handling for it!

Hi,

For me it is the same effect I use from years (more than 10 years ago)
I learned it bying a trick of Henry Mayol ( you can see the video there : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nYSEP0sE4M )

The presentation is different (and new) but it is the same effect!

Again nothing new!!!

You can also just buy the books "Chemical Magic". The trick is in there, plus a whole lot more.

Many thanks Randi. I will do exactly that. The book is exactly a quarter of the price of the DVD.

You can easily make 'fake struck matches' which is a normal unstruck match made to resemble a struck one.
I read this years ago in 'Paul Daniels' Adult Magic' book.
Then you can 're-strike' the previously burned match. No dangerous checmicals and a very similar effect.
Any spectator with half a brain will suspect chemicals are used with this self lighting match, wheras restriking a struck match may just be a bit more puzzling.

I have a big bottle of the "hard to find" chemical. Even though it's not really that hard to find and it's not going to bring in Homeland Security.
It's an old medicine that used be used for constipation. It's long been discontinued, but still can be found at an online chemical store.
The other half can be found at your local hobby store that carries soap making supplies.

One time I was a consultant for a local theater doing "*** Yankees".
Richard Kind was playing the devil and they wanted some magical things for him to do.
One of them was making his cigarettes light without fire, which was a trick put out awhile back called 'Flare'.
Which worked the same as Combustion.

People love to tell you how dangerous, toxic, deadly, or what ever this stuff is, but it's really not.
I mean it used to be medicine.
Is it good for you? no, but not any worse than any other chemical you have at your house that you are exposed to every day.

Now not to bash Combustion.
If someone figured out a way to put this stuff on a match, that's a valid adaption.
So I guess I am just saying... read books.

Got it too. And I thought about it when I saw the trailer.

Nice and fun to do trick. But a trailer trick.

I noticed on the Wizard Review the match heads were blue. Maybe this is common in other countries but I've never seen any color but red on a wooden match head. Can this be done with the red headed wooden matches available in the US?

Am I being paranoid thinking that there is a minimal chance that a match could set off a sensitive fire alarm indoors (pub / restaurant / hotel)?

This looks good, but I'd hate to be the wedding magician that caused all guests to be standing outside for an hour...
