Hello everyone.

In the future I wanted a glass production or two in my act. I have Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic and there he describes the production from the pit (if you will). I was looking for different places to hold the glass and steal it (misdirections for the steal). If anyone has any books, lecture notes, movies, anything, and could please help me out with a name it would really help me out very much. I love the pit method and have been practising it for about 3 monthes now, about 3 hours a week. I am still haveing trouble with smoothness and angles on the side! any others with this problem?


Thanks for everything everyone!

Joe Berg had a great one. I think a similar glass production can be found at http://www.stevensmagic.com

Lloyd Enochs, years ago, made a great holder.

Pete thank you very much!
Was the Joe Berg version in a book, do you know the name? And is the Lloyd Enoch gimmick is still available, is this the same Lloyd from the manuscript called Producing Lighted Cigarettes?


Thanks again to all

I also know of a method that works quite amazing well and is very simple in nature. Of course I can not post the exact method here so you will have to PM me for the details. It might serve you well. If intersted, please PM me and I can share with you some of the methods I have used in the past to accomplish this.

I have been looking all over the sight for books containing the wine glass production. I found some info about German magician Jorg Willich, who would produce a full wine glass from his shoe. Does anyone know where I can purchase this effect, book, lecture, video?

Thanks Everyone,

DJ

James Rainho has/had a book on glass and bottle production. I think the name of the book was 'Cheers'.

This was Rainho's Lecture, he no longer make the items but he tells how to constuct the props.

I did not see the book on the site so email him at:

magicjim@rainho.com

UPDATE: April 10, 2004

Joe Berg version is in his book 'The Berg Book'. It is on page 267. It is pretty much like the classic except it is more of the classic under the coat method using a suction cup and Eric Lewis used a holer of wire. It is similiar to the one mentioned above sold by Steven's Magic for $25 but it was made to collaspe against your body.

One of my 1st tricks I every bought was a glass of water production from E-Z Magic when they made good items and not the imports they use today.

The other glass of liquid production that really fooled me was the Double glass production from Repo Magic in England when they were wholesaling magic in the U.S. It just used a bankers clip. The only problem with this version is it did not use any method to seal the glasses and could spill very easily.

Bev Bergron used a shot glass productin in his lectures that were good. It again used an old established method. The msytery was that he produced at least 3 glasses from his coat. No cloth just reached in an took out a glass full of liquid and drank it.

No one mentioned that the classic arm pit method really uses a small wine glass. As I read the discription, if you are able to cover the base with material, it must be a small glass. True close were more loose back then but not that loose.

One final place I remember the arm pit method being discribed was in a Genii Magazine article. This was many years ago and do not remember the issue.
