The magician picks up a bottle of Merlot and starts to pour it out into a wine glass. In a forgetful moment he lets go, and the wine glass stays suspended in mid-air! When the glass is full, the wine bottle is put down showing there is no connection between the bottle and the glass.
The wine glass and gimmick - Everything you need to float away!
GOSPEL MAGIC IDEAS
Wine is mentioned 212 times in the Bible. Jesus chose wine as a symbol of his blood, which links it into themes of salvation, forgiveness and the coming Kingdom. You won't be short of message to use this effect to illustrate.
- God gives us wine to lighten our hearts. Psalm 104:15
- Abundant wine is one of the blessings of the age to come. 'He will make for all people, a feast of rich food and well-aged wine.' Isaiah 24:6
- God invites His people to celebrate in His presence by drinking wine - Deut 14:26
- Jesus banqueted with wine with his followers to demonstrate the joy of the nearness of the kingdom of God. Luke 5:29
- Jesus chose wine to represent his blood. Matthew 26:27-29
Use during a celebration, and you get double the impact as the audience aren't expecting a magic trick!
There's a lot of fun to be had by pretending you don't know what's happening. Start pouring the wine then turn to the audience and casually let go of the glass whilst talking, apparently distracted. You should at least get gasps from your audience, or may even have them shouting out what has happened (children will usually be the first to point and shout excitedly!) Look all around, confused at what that mean, before finally noticing the suspended glass...then YOU act just as shocked as they are!
- Looks impossible, like real magic!
- Simple to do, virtually self-working (allowing you to concentrate on the presentation)
- Durable polycarbonate wine glass, hard wearing and won't smash in transit like a glass one could
