The Fantasio Vanishing Candle is the ultimate prop. This candle can appear and vanish. Originally, the candle was made only to be able to vanish but it is also possible to make it appear as well.
I recommend using this with an 18" silk or larger (if preferred) to be used as cover. This candle comes in white but also in red. It is definitely an item that would be used constantly.
The gimmick can be reset fast and the interesting thing is that you can reset the prop in front of the audience! Just use the silk as cover and it'll look like you made the candle appear!
The candle comes coiled up in a small box with instructions for regular use. These instructions also have an explanation for the "candle to silk" trick. Then it comes with a plastic band to keep it from condensing when it is in a candlestick.
This needs some small practice in sleight of hand and the prop is easy to ditch to show your hands empty.
