Cool Magic Tricks
Cool magic tricks need not be too complicated in order to delight audiences. In fact, some magic tricks are so simple that they can be learned in a matter of minutes. Some magic tricks also depend on how the performer goes through the motions in order to be successful. Even the most simplest magic tricks can be the most baffling thing to see if done perfectly with skilled presentation and showmanship.
The Magic Cup
Show your audience an ordinary cup that you have filled with ice cubes. Blow inside the cup and turn it over to reveal the ice cubes inside. Tell your audience that you will attempt to make water vanish inside the magic cup. Drop in the ice cube and then pour in a little amount of water inside the cup. With a little shake, turn the cup over and walla, out comes the ice cubes minus the water.
The secret to this cool magic trick is that you make use of a cup or glass that your audience can’t see through. Now try to fit in a piece of sponge at the bottom of the cup and make sure that it fits securely even if you turn the cup upside down. When you pour water into the cup, the sponge will readily absorb it. So when you turn the cup over, no water comes out. Make sure that you pour only enough water that the sponge can absorb.
The Vanishing Coin
Here is a magic trick that can be as easy as any trick can get. All you need is a coin, a table and an audience. As you sit at one corner of the table, place a coin on top of it and try to get the attention of your friends by pointing on the coin. Try to reach for the coin by putting your index, middle and third fingers closely together. By pressing the coin on top with your middle finger with your arm in parallel with the table. Slide the coin towards you, making sure that you try to cover it up with your three fingers as you do so. Then slide the coin off the table and let it land into your lap.
As you get to the edge of the table, put your thumb together with your middle finger, acting as if you are picking up the coin. While keeping the three fingers still close together, stare at your fingers and move your thumb in a circular motion. Then slowly turn your hands to your audience and spread your fingers apart. The coin has mysteriously vanished!
Floating Ring Trick
Here is another cool magic trick that you can try out. Mix lots and lots of salt into a small amount of water to make a really,really thick salt mixture. Then try to soak a piece of string or thread in the mixture for about an hour or more. Then take out your string and let it dry.
Next, try to get a small ring either from your pocket or one from your audience. Next, tie it up with one end of your prepared string. As you hold the string by the other end, light up the thread starting from the ring end. The string will burn but the salt crystals will continue to hold the light ring.
This would surely cause a gasp from your audience as you finish up with your cool magic trick.
