Welcome to the Butterfly Ring, presented by barbumagic. In this video, you will learn several advanced ring magic effects, using both impromptu and gimmicked techniques.
Push - Pull Sequence - Ring-through-finger goes to the next level! This sequence consists of the following moves:
- PUSH (reverse of Patrick Kun's Reflex - ring through finger)- PULL, CLOSED PUSH, TRANSFER.
MELT - The ring looks like it melts through the finger, under the cover of the hand.
SLINKY Vanish - Very visual retention vanish.
LIFESAVER Vanish - Dirty method for a super-clean vanish.
BALANCE - Clean, angle-proof way to balance a ring on the finger; you can also turn your hand horizontally - the ring looks like it's stuck to the tip of the finger.
FLOAT - Great float of a ring. Can also be used also as a balance of the ring on a finger. You can then transfer the ring to another finger from the other hand.
OTT Vanish/Change - Ring vanishes with a wave of the hand; the ring can also reappear with another wave of the hand.
UG Vanish/Change - You display a ring in the middle of the hand and you close your fingers around it. When you open your hand, the ring is gone.
CATCH - Inspired by Garrett Thomas' "The Ring Thing", but using a different method.
BR THROUGH WINDOW - A visual, straightforward illusion of throwing a ring through glass.
BR THROUGH GLASS + variation - One of the most visual object-through-glass effects.
BR THROUGH TABLE + variation - Ring can travel, down or up, through a glass table.
Gimmicks can easily be found at most magic dealers.
