The April 2014 issue of Genii magazine has a review of the Evaporation trick
“It’s a clever out of the box approach to vanishing liquid that you haven’t seen before.”
David Regal, Genii Magazine 4/2014
In the review David Regal compare my thinking to that of Stewart James! I’m a huge Stewart James fan. Many tricks that are popular today are built upon his tricks. Without Stewart James there would be no Dean’s Box.

Someone just sent me a video of Justin Flom using the Evaporation trick (you can see it at the 1:06 mark):
That’s a very creative use for the Evaporation trick!
Did you know you can modify you Evaporation gimmick and put into a jar that would hold solids like jellybeans?
So the effect would be you show a tub of jelly beans and pour some into a paper bag. You blow up the bag and pop it and the jelly beans turn into confetti!
Or how about a tub of popped popcorn and turns into popcorn kernels?
If you are in the Portland, Oregon area I’ll be at the Portland Magic Jam today and a little bit Saturday morning.
If you want to check out the evaporation trick in person swing by, ask me for a demo and I’ll show it to you!
Every gimmicked Evaporation bottle is handmade by me. I start with a Sunny D bottle as it’s base.
Of course I can custom gimmick many different brands / types of bottles, but the stock version is a Sunny D bottle.
I empty each bottle and clean them out. Then I install the gimmick and give them a leak test. After that they are packaged up and shipped out!
