Houdini, David Blaine, and Chris Angel have one thing in common. No, not just magic, but also the power to create an illusion. If you want to know magic tricks, then just read on and let the magical powers guide you to the world of magic and optical illusions.
The next rule is to keep learning new tricks, start with the simple ones, but when you master them, upgrade to more sophisticated tricks. Before you learn how to perform the tricks, remember a magician must have a pokerface and should be able to draw the spectators under his spell. Learning tricks is quite easy; all you need is practice.
All you need is a hat to put five or ten coins of different currencies with different years and denominations. Tell your audience that all the coins are different, ask someone from the audience to check the coins and choose one to pass it on to the other to see.
Once the coin is inside the hat again, give the hat a shake to mix the coins. Tell the audience that you are going to read their mind and pick the coin they have chosen. Look into the hat and concentrate and feel the coins, the one that is the warmest, is the coin that was chosen by the volunteer. Bring it out in the open and leave your audience awestruck.
Separate the red cards from the black ones. In front of the audience, shuffle the deck but before you do so, quietly bend the red deck upward and the black deck downward. Ask from the audience to shuffle the cards. Place them face down on a hard surface and pick any card and guess the color. Stun the audience with your gift of speaking to inanimate things.
All you need to do is to place a sponge at the bottom of an opaque glass. Put some ice cubes on the sponge, remember this is before the act preparation.
When you perform your act, just pick up the glass and add water in it, and cast a spell on your audience by telling them that water will turn into ice. Turn the glass a little so that the ice can fall (the sponge will absorb the water), smile as the wide-eyed audience applauds.
Just practice regularly and you will definitely be able to put up a great show. Go ahead to find an audience and cast them under your spell. Always remember to follow the sacred code of the ancient magicians, and never expose your secrets.
