Re: RIP: Paul Diamond

Quite frankly, there are so many other effects which are so much easier to ready and demo repeatedly, I don't know why anyone would get stuck on this dam thing! :D

Either from a dentist or a dental supply company I suspect.

Re: RIP: Paul Diamond

Is there a way to set it up in view of the spectator? I've never done it, but it always looked like something that you'd have to bring out with the works all set up. it's the method reset that's challenging even when you have a bottle nearby. Please allow me to suggest that instead of a bottle, use...

I suspect that the easiest way (if you are not a dentist) would be to ask your dentist to order you some. First, see if he/she has an assortment for you to choose from. My dentist had only one kind unfortunately.

Any other way would be like pulling teeth! :lol:

Re: RIP: Paul Diamond

It it's too thick, it won't work. I know this because my dentist gave me some to try out and it was too thick and simply would not do that thing it's supposed to do.

Re: RIP: Paul Diamond

A few seconds actually. Another issue which should be considered is the wear and tear on the substance. Constant use will eventually tear it. You can always have a backup there just in case. Also, I can tell you that it works best when first broken in just a bit. You can always try it and see what h...

Indeed but you would have to turn away from the spectators to do that or perhaps be able to go behind a platform on your table to do that.

Re: RIP: Paul Diamond

I suspect that after Lubor came up with it, many copies came out. One reason being that it is so easy to copy. Nothing needs to be made actually. The substance and some brief instructions will do it.

Over the years, I have seen several versions (copies) available.

Re: RIP: Paul Diamond

I agree that the "Gozinta" or whatever it was called trick is visually impressive, but I will never forget Clarke Crandall's hilariously cynical references to it in TOPS magazine in the early 1960s. He considered it essentially a rip-off, just a piece of "dental mastic" and a se...

Re: RIP: Paul Diamond

Because of the setup preparation, it's not practical for repeated performances. Setting up several of these for performances won't work either because of a reason I won't divulge here.

Therefore, may I suggest that it's not a pitch trick by any means.

The very first time I saw the dental dam trick was in a Fun Shop in center city and the owner made it himself using cut up rubber gloves. He called the trick Osmo.

Re: Mystic Coin trick

I believe that it was made in Germany many years ago (most likely the 60's and maybe into the early 70's) and, if I remember correctly, had a chrome cap and the same coins that SS Adams used.

You may find one up for auction from time to time but it's not a commonly found item.

Hope that helps.
