In the modern age, sponge balls are one of the most criminally overlooked magic effects. Despite the fact some magicians view them as "outdated" or "corny", when performed well, they never fail to delight audiences of all ages.
And now, TCC Presents has taken sponge ball magic to new heights, and made it cool again, with "Pure Cup", an astoundingly fresh routine using just a clear cup.
No fancy gimmicks required. Just pure sleight of hand.
Each "Pure Cup" set comes with a premium quality, durable translucent resin cup. It's a gorgeous prop modeled in a similar style to those found in classic Cups and Balls routines.
The included video instructions will teach you:
- Basic appearance
- Basic vanish
- Basic "shake" appearance in an empty cup
- Shape and shadow change (back and forth transposition between your hand and the cup)
- Transformation (make the ball change shape and size)
- Two-handed color change
- One-handed color change
- A super clean single sponge ball vanishing technique with 360° angles
- The signature "Touch Vanish" (making the ball disappear as soon as the cup touches it)
The best part about "Pure Cup" is that everything you learn is modular and can be easily performed on its own or added to your favorite sponge ball routine.
"Pure Cup" also makes a great addition to TCC's "Sponge System".
