The author, Bacon Fire, is from a new generation of magic creators from Taiwan. He has an unusually rich idea for performing impromptu magic. He creates magic using his own unique style, breaking through many classic effects, while ensuring that every trick is effective. It is strong, visual, and practical! You will learn 6 effects of rubber band magic, each having evolved utilizing Bacon Fire’s incredible way of thinking about magic!
The Jumping Rubber Band is a classic effect, and has evolved with time, from the most classical single jump to the recent BJ4 four-hop jump of Hanson Chien. Once the industry feels that it is impossible to break through, Bacon Fire has created an infinite jump!!! Learn this principle — the rubber band will be able to jump between fingers infinitely, as many times as you desire.
Adapted from the rubber band single stroke process published by Magic Caul Morelli on theory11 in 2010 – TRANSIT, this is a non-props version of TRANSIT. It uses only a normal rubber band to almost recreate the entire performance. It is worthwhile to learn this trick.
Easy Come Easy Go
The penetration of rubber bands between solids is a very common effect and often requires a few settings to complete. Easy Come Easy Go, however, allows you to pick up a pen and a rubber band and get close to it when you have no settings at all — you can directly and continuously make the pen go inside and outside of the rubber band!
The effect of rubber band penetration often occurs in an instant. But now you can clearly see the whole process of penetration – it is definitely more impactful visually! CUT lets your spectator see the rubber band melt through a card — the process is direct and slow, like cutting and melting together to penetrate the past.
Inspired by Hanson Chien’s Lucky Star, this version allows you to complete the star, making it a true star.
The rubber band continually jumps between the magician’s palms — a quick and direct opening effect.
