Conjuring Up Magician Supplies

Nov 5, 2007
Success doesn't happen with the wave of a magic wand, so if you want to astound your friends with your magical powers, you will need to have the right magician supplies. Whether your specialty is cagey card tricks or elaborate illusions, you'll need specific items to complete your act. In this article, we'll detail a wide range of supplies and explain how they can help you become a master magician.

Ask anyone what a magician wears and they're sure to include a collapsible top hat and a magic wand. These standard item can be picked up inexpensively at any illusion store. They can also be found in the costumes department of many toy stores.

A breakaway wand is a little more sophisticated. He selects an assistant and then waves and taps his wand. However, when he gives the wand to his assistant, the wand falls apart. This is a very basic item for any illusion show.

Silks are an essential part in any performer's arsenal of magician supplies and can be found in a wide selection of colors and sizes. To work with the silks, you may want to buy mouth coils to perform a magic trick that's a favorite with audiences.

He faces the audience and they notice something protruding from his mouth. When he pulls on it, a bright swath of fabric will appear. As he continues to tug, yards of silk will be pulled from his mouth. Silks can also be used with canes for impressive illusions.

An 'appearing cane' is a tool that displays silk that magically turns into a solid cane. The trick works in reverse with the 'vanishing cane', which is a cane that magically turns back into two colorful silks.

The invisible thread reel is one of the most ingenious inventions in the last decade. Using this undetectable device, he can astound audiences by making any object appear as if it is floating through the air. Close-up pads are a must for the serious magician.

These accessories act as a "stage" for close-up illusion. Close-up pads make card tricks, coin tricks and cups and ball routines easier to perform. Finally, magic wax is a staple for anyone in the illusion card game. Magicians' wax allows you to do a myriad of card tricks without anyone discovering your secrets.

Whether you're performing in front of a large audience or in your own back yard, magician supplies will help you look professional. However, illusions take practice, so don't put an accessory into your act unless you've used it extensively and are sure of how it will work in your performance. The magic will appear to be effortless once you master these tricks of the trade.
