Paul Harris' Hand-Picked Astonishments - Vol 1 - Thumbtips - DOWNLOAD
[dvhandpicked_thumb]

$19.95

As Joshua Jay says on the DVD, "a thumbtip is a SECRET POCKET that's in plain site, and yet is invisible." What a great description of this universal gimmick that everyone should own! And yet, many who own one don't understand all the possibilities that you can use it for!

Here's what I liked about the DVD Download (which I watched start-to-finish and never got bored):

If you are new to thumb tips, or if you don't currently use one because you think it's limited in what you can do with it, then this really offers some great routines that you can do.

I remember the first trick I ever saw a magician do with a thumbtip: he made a silk disappear. I thought this was all you could do with a thumbtip for a long time (before getting involved with magic, of course)!

On this DVD, Joshua Jay (who is an outstanding teacher and presenter) shows how thumbtips are used to make items switch, appear, disappear, and transpose....all with this simple little gimmick that you can pick up for under a buck!

The routines on this DVD are easy for a beginner, but pack serious power for the professional. Did you ever think to do a METAL BENDING routine using a thumbtip? That's covered on here, along with many other routines.

Not to mention, Joshua covers a technique on here (during the teaching of Salt and Pepper) which I never even thought to use before (but can't mention or else I'd give it away)! All I got to say is, "Joshua, way to think outside the box, brother!"

In addition to routines, Joshua goes in depth about the different kinds of thumbtips, and how it really doesn't matter what skin color you are, or what type of thumbtip you use......he teaches you how to make it virtually indetectable so you don't feel like someone is going to notice it.

He covers thumbtip CARE, and how to make them fit a certain way! He covers MANAGEMENT, ANGLES, and how to keep it on without it being noticed.

He doesn't just say, "Here's an effect, let me teach it to you." He covers PRINCIPLES first, devoting an entire sections to STEALS and LOADS, so that you feel comfortable doing the "moves" before ever getting into the routines.

To sum it up, this isn't just a DVD on some tricks you can do with thumbtips. In fact, I found a lot of GREAT VALUE in the first half of the DVD, where Joshua is just TALKING about the management and angles.....how to carry yourself......how to be relaxed while using them. After watching this DVD, you're going to want to bust out your Thumbtip and begin using it all the time!

I literally have NOTHING NEGATIVE to say about this item. It's currently available as a DOWNLOAD, so you can literally begin to watch it TODAY as soon as your order is processed!
