Yes, there are several books "Chemical Magic".
Which is the right one?

This question was just posted, but nobody did answer: The prepared match (I think you have to prepare one), how long can it be prepared before? Can I prepare a lot of matches for example for the next 100 times I will use them and use them within a year? Or do they have to be prepared a small time (only 1 or 2 ours) before the "show"?

Squando,

Hi. I ordered the Leonard Ford book thinking this might be the one, if not, it still looks interesting.

Is the Leonard Ford book "the one"?

Thx.

KJ.

I think it is the classic, but don't know the others.

Good luck Iain. WPR like most other magic shops operate on the old chestnut "but you paid for the secret" BS.

"you paid for the secret" is from the old days when shops sold junk. It's a hangover from the past. If I was sold something dangerous/misleading and a shop wouldn't take it back, I'd never shop there again.

I kinda disagree that if you don't like the effect or can't use it you should get a refund, it's kind of the nature of the beast. If you're unhappy with it maybe treat it as widening your knowledge, then flog it on eBay. Just a suggestion but it's how I've learned to look at purchases I've been disappointed with.

One question, the effect doesn't come with TV rights & I was wondering which part of the effect this covers, is it the secret, the application or both?

T.V. right?? If your going to sell something for everybody then you should have all the t.V. rights you want. If someone would to perform this on T.V. there would be nothing they good do. Would not stand up in court.

I guess you can prepare a lot of matches and a long time before the show, BUT during (or just before) presentation you have to put on some chemicals to make the final ‘combusting mix’. At that point the time starts to run down to the moment of combustion…

My question to someone who owns this:

1. Am I right? And if I am, how long do I have from the moment I made the final mix?

2. Do they give tips on how to transport and how to apply the chemicals easily AND SAFE?

One more question:

I really think combusting a normal UNLIT match is a MUCH better demonstration. At least this is how I would prefer to do it. Just take a match and light it by pure concentration!

A drawback would be if the match would light to fast, that's why my question number 1 (above) is so important.

I guess the chemicals will color the tip of the match (dark or black), and that’s why they integrated the already lit match to the routine. Witch for me is a step back. Maybe more magical, but less mental. Also an already lit match should not make the sound a new match does. Everybody knows the sound is from the chemicals that are only on a normal new unlit match. But the striking material is already gone, so this does not make sense!!!

So my question is:

3. Do I have to paint the match to look like a normal match?
And is there anyone that has tried this with good results? (Please let me know)

There has been no real review of this ...other than by a retailer. Anyone willing to share?

Appreciate that. I'm particularly interested in whether or not you can duplicate (reliably) what is shown in the demo. Information about limitations also welcomed.

I will answer all questions I had myself in my posts above. And it will be an honest review, not sparing the developers/producers in any way (like many do Smile ), but naturally I will also give my complements if things are positive.

Well, I'm starting to think I blew my cash. Just received by DVD of Combustion and living in Australia, if it involved hard or impossible to source chemicals (everything is impossible to source over here) then I think I just bought a $30 frisbee. Tempted to not open it and send it back. ie: I didn't get the secret, I didn't even open it'. In my opinion, this product is a bit dishonest.
