Magic is a term that’s used to describe a vast range of different spectacles – from enormous, David Copperfield-esque stage shows to more intimate trickery. Provided that there’s some element of deception, each can be called magic – and each requires that the magician disguises what’s really going on in order to create the impression that something extraordinary has happened. But the two different ends of the spectrum require hugely different props and accessories. In this section you’ll find the items you’ll need to perform great magic in a more intimate setting.
The world of close-up magic places greater emphasis on the magician’s skill at misdirection and cunning sleight of hand. A good close-up magician will therefore rely a great deal on the quality of his (or indeed her) props. This section of the website is home to a slew of precisely-crafted props which will enable you to perform close-up magic. These include the popular sponge balls, which can be used to perform a host of different vanishing tricks, as well as classics like the deck of cards – through which hundreds of illusions are possible. Also in this section you’ll find instruction DVDs, which will provide a helpful resource when it comes to the performance of close-up magic.
So, whether you’re looking to get into close-up magic for the first time, or you’re a veteran of the art, take a look through the items listed here. After that, all that will be left to do is practice until your performance is perfect!
