Flash Paper is great for many different magic tricks. A bit of Flash Paper is perfect for jazzing up a routine, so your magic tricks have more… Pizzazz! For example, if you want to vanish something you can wrap it in flash paper and set it alight to make your item magically vanish in a ball of flames! You can use it to produce items too! Check out Kieron Johnson’s To The Max for a REALLY great routine that uses flash paper.
There are also magic tricks designed for use with Flash Paper. For example, the Flash Gun Electronic, this is a device that shoots flash paper out in a fireball from your hand! A great beginning or finish to any stage magic trick. There is Jay Sankey’s In A Flash. In this magic trick, a signed coin wrapped in Flash Paper burns a hole through half of the deck of playing cards and stops on the back of the spectator’s signed card!
Also check out Flash Notes, these are great for any money magic trick. Flash Notes are specially printed pieces of Flash Paper that look like bank notes. These Flash Notes allow you to borrow a banknote, screw it up into a ball or fold it up and then secretly switch it for the Flash note. When you set the Flash Note alight, it bursts into flames and disappears just as quickly it is very convincing that your spectator’s money burns into nothingness!
Flash Paper is a great way to add that extra something to your magic tricks. However, you should be aware of the safety issues as well. Make sure you act and perform responsibly when using any flash product, for your spectator’s safety, not just yours!
