One thing that I recommend to all magicians is to hang out with other magicians. Playing around with magic can lead to some interesting results for tricks. Here’s the highlight reel from a magic jam session yesterday:
One of the things that we played with was an oversized thumbtip. There was a lot more we came up with using it than what’s on the video. Who knew you could do soo much with a thumbtip without putting it on your thumb. Now the tricks don’t really work in the real world, as you’re using the tip as a prop that’s in view. With that in mind, it’s still a great creative exercise!
