do you ever get comments about being able to see the writing through the paper? Post-Its aren't that heavy and you can see writing through them.
Honestly, I've heard lay people ASSUME such things about index card stock as well... people need to come up with explanations sometimes :rolleyes:
The other side of this coin... I've used Rolling Papers as billets (when I had nothing else available)... talk about see through! :eek: But, when you approach things with confidence and go about your presentation in a nonchalant manner, you'd be surprised as to what you can really get away with and still leave the taste of intrigue in their mouths :p Well, consciousness at least... :D
Docc Hilford was the first person I was do anything with Post It notes (FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BILLET) but what Bev has produced lends to the performer some very interesting yet, subtle advantages that take the idea of basic billet work several steps further down the path than most anything I've seen in a very long time.
I will stress that these are not techniques that the typical Reader should use... too complicated and in my opinion "suspicious". But it's great for those that "Perform" (especially in pre-show! Nothing like having someone fill out a slip and seal it closed, only to open it later for verification... and it's been in their possession the entire time :cool: )
