Glass Mirage by Alex Lourido
From the inventive mind of Alex Lourido (Butter Coin, Osmosis, Rainbow Coins, and Retro Magic) comes his most spectacular trick, yet - Glass Mirage! This beautifully crafted and ingenious prop will have you performing mind-twisting feats with ordinary, unprepared beer and soda bottles that are so incredible, they defy physics!
For example, take an empty beer bottle and turn it upside down to fully extract any remaining liquid. Display both of your hands empty, and with a magical wave, the sound of re-pressurization is heard! Then the cap instantly appears on the bottle's mouth! Hand the bottle out for examination and, to everyone's astonishment, the bottle is now completely refilled and capped with an airtight seal!
They open the bottle with a bottle opener and hear it depressurize, while the beer foam bubbles up and gently cascades down the side of the bottle! Or, place an empty beer bottle at the center of a table and cover it with a thin, shear silk. On your command the sound of re-pressurization can be heard! Then you or a spectator removes the silk to reveal that the bottle is completely filled, capped, and sealed!
You can also inform your friends and audience that you have trained yourself to remove a non twist-off cap from any beer bottle, with nothing more than your bare hands! You than borrow an unopened and completely sealed bottle from someone and proceed to place your fingers around the cap. With a light prying motion the cap is seen to pop off the bottle and the sound of rushing air is heard! The bottle is displayed and shown to be completely open! You put the bottle down on the bar and display the cap in your hand. Then, with a light rub the cap instantly vanishes and to everyone's shock and amazement, it is seen to reappear at the neck of the bottle from whence it came! And of course, the bottle is capped with an airtight seal!
You can also perform all of these amazing routines with corked wine bottles, as well! And all routines require zero set up! That's right, no tedious preparation or setup required! All of these beautiful routines, and much more, are taught by Alex Lourido on the accompanying DVD. He systematically teaches all of the spectacular tricks and illusions that can be performed with the GLASS MIRAGE.
Lourido also explains how to use this incredible gaff to perform outrageous "Kids Tricks" such as, taking a glass soda bottle and stretching it out to almost twice its original size and then bending it in half, followed by tying its neck into a knot! The GLASS MIRAGE is a beautifully designed gaff that is constructed of the world's finest materials. This item will never see the inside of a dark drawer, because you will carry it practically everywhere!
