For this magic trick you need just a matchbox. Take a match and cut one of its striker sides. Cut out the flammable surface from the cardboard. Fold the strip and light it up. Let it burn and collect the residue produced by the burning. This white residue is the hero of your trick. Rub this white phosphorous residue on your thumb and index finger to make them smoke. Don’t forget to wash your hands after your performance.
Bending a spoon
First of all, hide a small silver coin in your hand. Now put the oval end of the spoon by the table. And act as if you are using a lot of force to bend the spoon. As you are doing it, slowly place the coin on top of the handle so that it will give a bend structure to the spoon to the audience.
Levitate a person above the table
For this trick, the magician’s assistant shall lie down on the table. Dress of the assistant plays a major role here. The magician will make sure that she is wearing a long dress in order to hide space beneath the table. Moreover, the dress should be long enough to touch the ground. The magician then proceeds to act to float her above the table. This is actually achieved by a special lifting mechanism specially designed to perform these tricks.
