Smooth by Nicholas Lawrence

WORKS WITH CANADIAN MONEY!

You see a chapstick melt through a dollar. You see it melt back out. And then you can examine everything… and finally your brain melts. I mean.. what do you say after seeing something like that??

Now here’s why this is my favourite pocket trick of all time.

1. The penetration looks better than ANYTHING similar that has come before it. Even before I get to the other reasons, this already makes it the best. You have to see it to believe it. Just spectacular.

2. Pen-through dollar was my #1 favourite pocket trick for years. Then, when Chris Smith’s Ignition came out, I preferred that because it uses a car-key, and it’s way more natural to have a car key than a pen these days.

BUT NOW though, this uses a lip balm, which is EVEN MORE normal to have on you, and for any age of magician (kids with car keys looks fishy).

3. You don’t SLAM it through, like you have to with other penetration tricks. You MELT it through.. it looks like a special effect in slow motion.

4. The gimmick is easier to handle than any pen-version before it.

Video was done with a PROTOTYPE. For legal reasons actual gimmick says Chap Stuff.

    Very visual

    The reason for four stars? The Gimmick is well made.I think they could have made the special something with a better material.This will not last a life time.Some where down the road they will have to offer replacement gimmicks or you will have to purchase the effect again. $40 They should have made it in a thin plastic but they did not.Other than that a cool effect.

    brilliant

    For starters, if you're into magic for any length of time, the method is obviously simple yet the quality and effort are extraordinary. Like many of Mr. Lawrences' creations every detail is covered. Great work and look forward to many more new releases.

    Chap Stuff!

    Received safe and sound in the UK from Penguin. Excellent price with free shipping too! Great effect, gimmick and thorough handling tutorial from Nick. Look forward to Nicks mid-air card vanish :)

    Truly Smooth

    This is one of the most convincing penetrations I have seen so far, and been able to perform to gasps from spectators at watching it happen. Many years ago, the old *********** frame had the same effect, but even the dullest spectator knew there was "something fishy about that frame" even if he didn't know how it was done. Smooth has no suspicious frame. The dollar bill is borrowed, the Chap Stick is the real thing, the angles are covered and it just seems so impromptu that people are stunned. It even is superior to the "Pen Through Dollar Bill" in that the action of both the *********** and the removal can be seen while it is happening. It is Truly Smooth.

    LOVE THIS!

    I now have performed this probably close to 100 hundred times at gigs and I have to say, for me, the reactions are over the top! Both adults and kids LOVE this! They are super stumped when the Chap Stick penetrates the bill but then their reactions always turn to complete amazement when the tube is pulled out. The heat is totally on the bill and I have never had anyone ask to see the Chap Stick. Even if they did want to see it, you have so much time to clean up and hand it out. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
