Effervescent Effects by Julius Hopkins Effervescent Effects
by Julius Hopkins

Here's a book that belongs on every magician's digital shelf! Inside you'll find 48 effects, tips and suggestions for close-up and club performers.

One of our favorites is the "Ring and Balloon Problem," as we can see it being used to win bar bets. Especially if you use an engagement or wedding patter story with your spectator.

"Dollar Discernment" is also exceptionally clever as a mental test. We believe entertainers will make great use of it for those situations where they are asked to perform and have no props with them. Good stuff!

  50. About the Author

"We liked it! This is the sort of book welcomed by most magicians. A variety of subjects, close-up and stage effects, tips, ideas, routines and suggestions. It is always good to learn what the other fellow does and to add some of his thoughts to your own chicanery."
