Does anyone own one? They seem pretty cool, however my question is.. if I wrapped a wire in flash paper and lit it... would the heat be enough to instantly change the wiregram into the selected card?

Thanks,
Keith

Guys wiregram is one of the best effects out there . I got all of them. try to own at least two. there will always be someone out there who will say do it again. I always carry three. I also carry with it a duplicate that does'nt do anything.

How much flash paper do you guys use with this?

What method do you have for wraping it around the wiregram???


I ripped up a small sheet and wrapped it around a wiregram that I had wrapped around my finger, but it was not enough to get it to warp completly, only part of the way there.... any thoughts?

A flash pad works for everything I own except for the 3H which is actually 3 hearts so its long... most of the time it gets tangled and doesn't completely form correctly. I have thought about cutting off 1 heart and making a 2 of hearts

Tip for the flash paper!

Got to the local gas station and buy Zig zag cigarette rolling paper. Replace their paper with flash paper. It looks ideantical. This way you don't just pull out a piece of falsh paper.

PS. can you put up a link on where to buy wire grams?

You can try DaytonaMagic.com.
Search under Card magic, wiregram. They have seven wiregrams listed on their site.

The wire is straight and bends into the symbols of a card when heated.

Would it be possible to make your own wiregram forms?

Yes, but it is a hard thing to do at home.

You need to get the wire into shape then blast it cherry red with a blowtorch.
Try to keep the wire fixed under those conditions. Not easy!

lewis - The wire is straight and bends into the symbols of a card when heated.

I bend mine into a paperclip shape or a hairpin or pull it from a seam in my clothing.

Years ago, there was a trick using a coil spring that appeared to get red hot when held. It was a simple thing but effective. Anyone know the name and availability?

Houdini's in vegas carries that one. The trickery did too but I don't know if they still do. Look for it in mentalism sections.
