Glass Evaporation Bottles…

Quite often people are surprised when they hear that I can put the Evaporation gimmick into glass bottles.  Some of my early experiments with Evaporation were using glass bottles, however if you are traveling with your show (like me) having it in plastic is much easier.  You don’t have to pack it in its own case … Continue reading “Glass Evaporation Bottles…”

In a version of my flea circus I use a glass Yoo Hoo bottle:

The basic routine for me Flea Circus can be found in Vanish Magazine Edition 11 under the title Twenty Five Dollar Flea Circus.

Evaporation as a Kid’s Show Opener

Evaporation has a lot of uses besides my original routine for Juice in Light Bulb.  For example if you perform for kids here’s a way to work it into the show: The coils I use I make myself from cloth ribbon and they are reusable.  I simply rewind them around a straw that has a notch … Continue reading “Evaporation as a Kid’s Show Opener”

A bit about Evaporation…

Hello I’m Louie and I created Evaporation a little over a year ago to fill a need in my show to make some liquid disappear.  I wanted to do a Milk in Light Bulb type effect, but an updated version.  Honestly there is no reason for a lamp to be on stage, so I came up with … Continue reading “A bit about Evaporation…”

Hello I’m Louie and I created Evaporation a little over a year ago to fill a need in my show to make some liquid disappear.  I wanted to do a Milk in Light Bulb type effect, but an updated version.  Honestly there is no reason for a lamp to be on stage, so I came up with a prop that justified having a light on stage, so one problem was solved.

The next hurdle was finding a way to make the liquid disappear.  Traditionally most magicians use a Magic Milk Pitcher to make the liquid disappear.  For me a Magic Milk Pitcher doesn’t fit the look of the show…and when was the last time you saw anything other than water served in a pitcher?    So for me I needed a new vessel to carry the liquid in.  I had to decide on if I wanted to try to build a Magic Milk Pitcher gimmick into a bottle or create something new.  I went the route to create a different method that would be more situated for a modern performing style.

After many failed attempts I finally came up with a design that worked reliably and had some nice bonus features.  For example you can juggle the Evaporation bottle with the gimmick set and then do the liquid vanish…Try that with a Magic Milk Pitcher!

Here’s a the demo video:

I used Evaporation in my show for a year before releasing it to the magic community in November of 2013.  The first year that Evaporation was in my show I used it in hundreds of performances across the country and in pretty much every performing condition imaginable. During the early shows using the gimmick I had pretty much everything that could go wrong go wrong, so you could say I worked out all the bugs for you.

I hope you like it!
