If you purchased an Amazing Magic Wand from the Amazing Teacher, Steve Somers, you have landed on the correct page. Below you will find directions for six additional tricks that you can perform with your magic wand. Remember, practice, practice, practice . . . and have fun!
Place the wand across the open palm of one hand, with the back of the hand toward the audience. Curl your fingers into a fist. Slowly open your fingers and the wand seems magnetized to your hand.
Secret… Grip your wrist with your other hand. Don’t let the audience see your right index finger holding the wand in place.
1. Hold wand as shown.
2. Lift one thumb. Audience will think that your other thumb is now holding the wand.
3. Lift second thumb. They will be amazed!
4. Study the drawings to see how the trick is achieved. Interlace fingers so that one is folded inside your palms. The wand is held behind hidden finger.
5. To end the trick, pull your hands apart quickly and let the wand fall.
Routine: “I’ll wind this string around the wand and tie the string in a knot. When I say the magic word, the wand will escape.” Wrap string around the wand three times. Hold the string with your index finger (see drawing). Wind the string around the wand three more times, but in the opposite direction. Have a friend tie a knot. Say,”SUPERFUGIO” (Escape in Latin), and pull the string straight down. The wand will be free of the string, yet the string isstill tied in a knot.
Preparation: Pull one tip off, fill the wand about one-third with play sand or table salt. Slide the tip back on.
Routine: After holding the wand at an angle so thesand flows to one end of the wand, place the wand on a table with two-thirds (end with no sand) is hanging over the edge. The wand will not fall. Your audiencewill naturally think the wand is weighted at one end. Turn the wand over (allowing sand to slide to the other end) and place it with the other end on the table.
