How to Make Your Own Magic Tricks

How to Make Your Own Magic Tricks

Magic has been around for more than 2 centuries. Some tricks have been modified or customized by the magician and you can do the same so you are able to perform your own magic tricks.

For that, you need to list down all the magic tricks you know. You probably learned this by reading a book or viewing an online tutorial. You then figure out which tricks you can change slightly and get the same results. Sometimes, instead of using one prop it can be substituted for another.

The best way to do this is to work your way backwards by knowing what is the end result then working your way towards the very beginning. This should be practiced as often as possible to see that it really works.

Aside from making changes in the magic tricks, try to also modify your presentation style. This will make it look as though no one has done this before even if someone already did it. For instance, if you have never used a wand before, introduce it into your act.

The wand has been used by many as a way to distract the audience so you will have to time to make the trick work.

When the changes have been made, try to get a small group of people to watch your perform. This could be some family members or friends. After its done, get feedback from them and listen to what they say. If they like it, try to get another group to watch because you want to make sure that your routine will be entertaining when you put on a show.

Given that magic has been around for so long, it is impossible to come up with a new magic trick unless perhaps this is done on a very large scale. There was a time that a magician made a plane disappear then years later, something bigger came along like the Statue of Liberty.

But if you think about it, the principle is still the same. This was done using lights and creating the illusion that it really disappeared when in reality it is still there which just goes to show that sometimes coming up with a magic trick involves outdoing what someone else did.

Since it is hard to come up with a new magic trick each time you put on a show, one thing you can do is learn new tricks and then introduce this into your act. This will mean studying the trick from scratch like you have done so many times before and then practicing until you get it right.

You can do some research or get a fellow magician to teach you how he or she does it in exchange for teaching something that they want to learn. This is beneficial to both since you are both getting something new from this arrangement which will improve your skills as magicians.

Can you really make your own magic tricks? The answer is no but you can make some changes to what has been done by others in the past making it look different in the eyes of the audience. This could even be your signature magic trick if you don’t tell anybody about it even if someone somewhere else has probably done it.
