Imp Bottle anyone?

Postby Spellbinder » October 2nd, 2005, 3:23 pm

So now that the debate over Chris Angel has been thankfully closed, and Richard Kaufman suggested we might discuss the methods of the Imp bottle if we like, I have a whole new routine for the Imp bottle that gets rid of the gimmick and makes it possible to use the bottle in divination for finding lost objects (the bottle lays down in your hand when you approach the hidden object). Anyone interested?

David Roth published an Imp Bottle routine in Apocalypse (I think) that didn't use the regular gimmick.

Michael Close has one too... and I remember Karrell Fox had a routine with about a dozen of the bottles all in play at one time.
Stay tooned.

For my routine you need to actually be holding an imp bottle in your hand while you read the directions. Get out your imp bottles and hold them in your right hand while you wait for me to post the directions. Oh, darn! By then you'll have figured out my method just from watching the little thing in your open palm!

Docc Hilford has published some material on the Imp Bottle, used on the hand without the gimmick. Clever stuff.

I'd be interested in Spellbinder's handling. Go ahead.
