Hi has anyone ever heard if there is a flash powder that can be pre-loaded into a TT.

I don't have a lot of experience with flash powder so I'm not sure if it is too powerful.

I am trying to get a big effect when vanishing lit cigs.
Never mind the card tricks, what can you do with tapioca and a rabid dog?

Seems that I saw a "Vernet" with a mechanism built into it to light flash cotton. I actually may have it around here somewhere but I am remodeling and can't get at most of my magic right right now.

But now that I re-read your post, I would guess it wouldn't work as you want to canish a cigarette first then flash.

My suggestion is; don't try it. Flash Powder is dangerous in an open area, and somewhat confined in a Vernet would make it that much more explosive and dangerous.

I would consider combining the lit cig vanish with a Phoneix flame device from Jim Pace (No - I don't get a commission on recommending these things - I just think there are so many places to use them, they ought to be used)

It may be a stretch, but the way I see it is that, after you vanish the cig, you ditch the Venet, pick up the Phoenix, and while all of the "heat" is on the other hand where the cig vanished, you shoot the phoenix and release as you open the hand, to show it empty, and you are totally clean!

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.

I have the TT you speak of. The flash isn't that big if you don't load much cotten in. It can get big if you use more cotten. It's a matter of what you want to do with it. I must confess the sparker and load aren't small. I just got it and it's going to take me a while before I feel comfortable using it because I generally show both sides of my hands when I use a TT. Can't do that with this one.

It does however light smoothly and the flame is of a decent size. The only problem is that once you do it, everyone is looking for that something you must be holding. They don't know what to look for but they know to look. I'm sure with practice it'll be killer!


Oh BTW, I use flash cotten, not flash paper in mine. It wasn't priced bad either.

Nate Kranzo has two effects from his "Out Of The Box" DVD using a TT & regular flash paper. Check it out.

I would think the use of flash powder might be pretty hazardous.

A fellow magician at my club did a cute effect with a TT and FP.

He produced a packet of hot sauce, with a flash and a puff of smoke.

It is a pretty neat trick.

Hi Dan.
A good way to produce a flash as you vanish the cigarette is using Rick Haslett's Flashpaper's Delight. This gimmick produces a flash of fire and I believe it is attached to your clothes. It leaves your hands empty. I think it can be used for your purpose. I am not sure, as I am getting this gimmick next week. But send an email to Rick and ask him. He will guide you. He is a nice guy as I have dealt with him. Check There are some other cool fire gimmicks there.Smile

Ok, this is kind of "asking for it", but loads of fun never the less. Place a SMALL amount of flash paper (like as in, start with a little over a square inch and then you can go to a little bit more when your more comfertable) into your TT and place it on your thumb. I then light a match and let it burn for a little while. Then blow it out and before it loses heat, drop it into your clenched fist (with the TT) you need to keep your hand to the side because what followed is a foot of flame, about 4 inches out of your fist.

Again this is very dangerous and takes a little experimenting. I cannot be held responsable Smile hope this helps!
