I have a set of Jake era satin JES Squatty 2 cups that I had polished, antiqued, and sealed. I do not perform much anymore, but it looks like that is changing. My question is this: Should I also seal the insides or just leave them as polished? Will it affect the nesting? Or am I just overthinking it? Thank you!

Nice cups and wand Smile

There really no need to seal the inside, you can always wet it, but I wouldn't bother sealing the inside.

Did you make the balls yourself?

No, I picked those up at an online magic shop. I would mind trying if I knew where or how to start.

They look nice with the cups. Are they Monkey Nutz brand balls by chance?
That's what I bought back a couple years ago and they are great. I have a set of what was called Chopped Monkey Nutz.
I thought the prices were great I priced everything I needed to make them and it wasn't much more just to buy them.

I thought the marketing was clever for them too.

No, these are not. I am not sure what "brand" but made by someone different. Will be moving to baseballs for the cup/ball contrast between the two and the Snakewood wand.

Thanks for the comments! I am glad they turned out like they did! And at $4 a cup it was a no-brainer! Smile

Look up "monkey fist ball tutorial" on youtube. There are tone of tutorials, and they aren't that hard to make.
Reality is a real killjoy.
