Smoke from Fingers
(Chennai, Tamilnadu, India)
The magician shows his hands completely empty then amazingly upon his command smoke starts to rise from his hand. Once finished the magicians shows his hands empty once more.THE SECRET:
You need to cut off the striking ends of a few Matchboxes (the part where you normally strike a match). Burn these in a porcelain dish.
Once they have burnt some green coloured residue will be left behind in the dish. Put some of this residue on your thumb and pointer finger and you are ready to go.
Show your hands empty to the spectators (they will not be able to see anything in your hands) slowly rub your pointer finger and thumb together and smoke will start to come from your hand!TIP:
You must wash your hands
straight after the performance the residue can cause skin irritation.
