Stage Drawing Duplication

Postby David Devlin » June 14th, 2008, 8:07 pm

I am looking for a good stage drawing duplication, which requires no pre-show work. Right now I am simply using a hooded blind fold, so I am just looking at the picture through the blind fold. But I want to use the blind fold in another routine, so I don't want to use it twice. Can you help?

I suggest you get one of John Riggs's 'Brown Hornet' impression boards. This excellent prop will allow you many variations of drawing duplications. See:

You can also use the new electronic empression device from Labcomagic, Mindbuster. You can read more about it here: www.labcomagic.com

James Biss sells the Impressionable Mind Board. The impressions can be read even in the worst lighting conditions and it appears to the audience to be just a thin sheet of white hard plastic that you've improvised into a clipboard.

Another is the BUMA board from Stevens Magic.

Osterlind's is very good, also.

I recommend this impression board. It's served me very well and as mentioned it looks pretty innocent.

I would also recommend looking into Richard Osterlind's drawing duplication from No Camera DVD set.

Devlin, you may want to continue using the blindfold for the DD
as opposed to spending money for impression boards. If however you persist in using a "board" I would suggest that you check very carefully before buying to aviod disappointment. Don't know what else you may want to use the blindfold for but perhaps that effect can be done another way.

There is a drawing duplication for stage in the book "Edge of Reality". It can be performed any time in a program with no pre-show, nor any one of those fancy clip boards. Just two dry eraser boards are used and some man bits. LOL

I recommand also James Biss Mind Board. You can't go wrong with it because you will see the drawing whatever the lights conditions on stage - and it can't go wrong as can any electronic device.

Banachek's Picture Duplication (from Psi Series 2) is excellent and has no impressions to read - electronic or otherwise.

HI All,
any update since 2009 on this interesting topic?
I usually see cool drawing dup routines with a solid preshow behind but, like David, I am interested in tricks with these characteristics

thanks/Fabio
