I enjoy performing the twisting arm illusion, it gets great reactions, but I think it would be better if I had "twisted marks" on my arm, resembling David Blaine's marks. Any ideas?

I suggest you go for originality. No audience likes a copycat.

Since you have and know Shinkoh’s brilliant impromptu illusion I assume that you bought it from Meir Yedid (since he owns the rights to the illusion and sells it). Pull out your booklet or videotape and you will find complete instructions on how to make your skin look twisted.

If you didn’t buy the effect from Meir what are you doing performing it? The booklet only costs $5.00 and the DVD is a mere $24.95 (or $14.95 for a videotape).

You can check it out at:

By the way, this is where David Blaine got it. You can be just as original as he is.

You can use fishing line and wrap it around your arm pretty tightly-- it should give the effect you want--try it

I would use thin invisible fishing line. The way it looks on the video is really bad.

I perform the twisting arm normall.The illusion itself is so visual that I don't need to show twisted marks on my arm to make it more visual.

Scully performed this in an old episode of the X-Files....The episode dealt with a magician team that used magic to steal money and frame others....interesting episode..

Use the reel to make the mark around your arm and a glass of plastic under your arm. When you finish the trick you show your contorted arm. So you shake your arm and the cup of plastic will make the noise, and the mark will disappear.
