Thanks for the "WOW"! Smile

That was about 1.5 days work. There are gaps while molding materials and casting materials set. Now it takes me 2-3 hours to turn out a tip from my mold, including painting. I'm making a compact writing tip and a magnetic one as well.

By far the best and most invisible looking TT I'v ever seen. But it doesn't seem it will fit much though, ex. a silk?
And since it so much work involved I guess we're talking a high price range here?

I have a few custom made TT's. None of them look as realistic as yours. If I send you my thumb will you make me one?

Nice Tom. Is it the hard type or the soft type? I have trouble with proper fit, I'll bet that one fits well.

Thanks everyone!

It is a hard plastic tip. I am experimenting with soft ones soon. It is a snug fit in terms of diameter but has about 10-12mm (1/2 inch) on the tip free. I can make different versions easily. I am going to make up a giant version (25mm - 1 inch) I am making a m**n***c tip and a writer one soon. They will fit like a glove.

Obviously I have the advantage of a cooperative subject! HA HA!

The response I have had has been amazing so I am quickly working out a long distance solution for making them up. They do come at a price that reflects the amount of detailed work that goes into them. They must be considered SERIOUS tools and collectables.

If anyone has any GENUINE desires to discuss having one made, please email me tomlauten@hotmail.com

I suspect their will be a waiting list soon as the feedback I have recieved has been so encouraging.

For a second, I thought the FIRST pic was of you wearing the TT, and was like HOLY #@&!! That's IMPOSSIBLE!!!! But the TT is the best I've seen. I'm a ham-handed guy myself and I'd definetely be interested in 2 or 3 of these.
Everybody wants to beleive.....we just help them along.

Tom you have talent and the potential to earn some serious money with work like that.. You should think about all of the standard hand gimmicks that are used in magic & mentalism and create these for the serious performer..

I would point out though that a Vernet does the job exceptionally well, infact I watched some guy in vegas lecture using a Green tip.. No one saw it.

None the less that is good...

GASP!!! I'm SHOCKED...but yes...no problem (perv...! Smile)

It's worth adding that I will be creating soft TTs soon.

I will also put up some photos of small PK tips, larger ones and TTs for magicians with dark (Hispanic, Afro-Caribbean and East Asian) skin tones.

The cost for a custom "Elite TT" (from a casting of the performer's thumb) is £100 (GBP).

At the moment I am creating "Elite TT's" from Nimba Creation's work shop (my special effects facility in the UK)where performers visit for casting and fitting sessions.

I am currently arranging the logistics of supplying "Elite TTs" for artists in other countries.

If one is genuinely interested in having an Elite TT, plese contact me directly for more information. The site is also being updated regularly with further products and information.
