Ash in Hand
Street Magic Trick


There are two effects you can do with the same preparation and method..

The magician takes a cigarette and rubs some of the ashes into the spectators clenched fist until they disappear

He then says some magic words and asks the spectator to open there fist and the ash has penetrated onto their palm.

The spectators look amazed as if some sort of voodoo or black magic has happened and they kinda get a little freaked out as in their thoughts, you havent even touched their palm, no contact was ever made with the palm.. It Just appears into their hand!! Amazing reactions will be there for you!!


you rub ash into you hand until it disappears then ask the spectator to open their clenched hand and they will see the ash has jumped from your hand to theirs!! The idea is the same but in their minds you havent even touched them at any time during the trick.. the trick blows their minds and you leave with mystery and finesse

Two for one magic trick!! which is how magic should be...

Put some ash on your middle finger


Tell the spectator to stand in front of you and hold their hands out towards you, palms down.

Tell them to come a little closer and physically grab their hands to gently pull the person a little closer.

At the same time touch their palm lightly with the ash on your middle finger. You will be surprised how spectators and volunteers miss this.. because you do this bit so quickly they just do not notice it. Mis-direction and hand is quicker than the eye comes to mind!!

Ask them to close their fists, borrow a lit cigarette which you use to flick some ash on their fist (or put the ash in your hand instead) and rub in until it disappears.

You can then say some magic words and ask them to open their hands when the ash seems to have penetrated (or appeared) their fist.

A brilliant trick to do on the street. You might find it difficult to find people who smoke so you might have to try using your own cigarette.. do not inhale the smoke as it is dangerous!!

Let it burn and leave the ash on the end.
