One of the most popular effects in magic are impossible looking penetrations with restoration endings. There are literally thousands of marketed and published versions, and more are coming out weekly. Especially the angley versions that can only be done one-on-one or on a video screen.
Today I will introduce you to one that can be done live and uses an ordinary looking item that can be examined and eaten after the performance!
After watching the trailer, I kind of figured out what was going on but when I got the gimmick, I was surprised that I was not even close. Gustavo Raley’s solution was much better, more elegant, and easier than I imagined. I think you will really like this and even be able to do it with very little practice. I am also surprised that nobody has thought of this method before… for the Cigarette Through Quarter effect.
This is a very clever and relatively simple method and gimmick that can be used to perform the classic plot of penetrating one object with another and then restoring it at the end.
This version, however, uses an Oreo type cookie that will be penetrated and then restored… but, unlike all other versions of this classic plot: The cookie can be borrowed, examined, and at the end examined again, and even eaten!

►Blank Coins Routines:
In 1998 David Roth introduced the blank coins concept to magic. The idea was that blank coins can magically transform into any coin you want. Since that time, he continued to innovate, improve, and change his original routine. Along the way he also created some new techniques to facilitate the magic.
The video tutorial, that is included with this coin set, features David performing his original routine and the final version he decided to release. You will also learn Dr. Michael Rubinstein’s routine and some ideas by Meir Yedid.

►Dean’s Coin Wallet:
This is a very nicely made coin purse that Dean Dill used with his coin magic. It is a double-sided switching purse that snaps shut. It looks exactly the same on both sides so you can use if for multiple outs, switches, or just carry your coins and small props.
The 3.25” x 3.5” wallet is made of top-grade genuine leather. Incudes written instructions by Dean Dill and a bonus routine by Michael Weber.
