This effect on its own is a killer, I really don't think it needs to be place with another effect tho.. It's my one tool that has actually had me rebooked for walk around gigs.. I love it 😆

I bought this 12 months ago and it fry's people, its great to combine it with some pk touch using two people, as you can imagine a cross appearing on the other persons arm 6 ft away is a great climax! its brilliant.

Does the wax dry out when kept 24 hours on the end cap? If not, how long will it last? I see they give extra. How many times do you use it until the stickiness wears out? Where can additional black wax be purchased? I plan to take mine to my restaurant gig this evening. I would hate placing it back in the plastic container after a few uses.

When I carry it in my pocket I put another Sharpie cap on the other end. Pretty easy to get off as you take it out of your pocket. This certainly keeps the dust off.
Amazing trick.

That works. I found tho that with a little dust it still does what it needs too and lessens the chance of any left over stuff on your thingy...

The thing it comes with is too sticky for me. I have a hard time getting rid of it.

I would say use less, you need very little and get used to it not sticky too tightly but I wonder if it has to do with skin type, temperature and humidity as well

I used it many times last night. The stickiness never went away. I did not know a tiny amount was going to last so long.

I do not like getting the ink on my thumb when taking off the one piece.

I kept mine in my shirt collar hanging it by the cap's clip. I had no worries of dust getting to it.

I like the clip of Dan White doing it on his arm. That is how I did it last night to all the patrons at the restaurant. That way never failed and I do not have to put the cap in my mouth.

Some of you might want to carry those alcohol packets with you when you do it incase the spectator wants it off immediately.

Hey, I'm having the same problem. The black stuff doesn't stick too well here either. I guess it's skin type.
Has this worked?

Make sure it's not too cold.. I have very little on my pen but mush it up a little with thumb and forefinger before I use it. Makes it softer.

It's not the coldness, definitely skin type. I even ordered octopalm to try if that helped out, but not really. If there's any moisture in the fingers things will not stick whether using octopalm or the black stuff

Be careful, if you push the sharpie cap too much, the gimmick can stay locked inside it..
