What a beautiful, clever and mystifying effect this is!
When you first see this performed it is hard to fully comprehend how quickly your hand will burn when you put it over a candle. Even from a few inches it feels like it is burning within a couple of seconds. If you try it you will see immediately that almost the second you put your hand over the flame you have to remove it.
However, with this well engineered and clever gimmick you can literally keep your hand there for minutes without any discomfort. How it works it kind of amazing and it really doesn’t matter how high the candle is – I tried it with 4″, 6″ and 9″ candles and they are big candles. So it will cover a whole slew of candles, and none of them are gimmicked. You can pretty much use any candle though it does work better with wider pillar candles. I use 3″ wide ones with the various heights as shown.
The gimmick is expertly engineered and the remote control is a small key fob size and works perfectly. You don’t actually need the remote control, but it does add that extra kicker effect where you can have a spectator be able to withstand the heat or not without even getting close to the candle.
This is some powerful magic and a really interesting effect that is unique. It can be done in a variety of situations with no set-up and simply looks amazing and just how real magic should look!
This is the Rex Ignis Advanced Version with the remote option. The Advanced Version allows you to use a matchbox, card box, or the classic invisible set-up, so it is more flexible for the performer.
Effect: Imagine you step up to the table in the restaurant, take the candle on it and put it in front of you. You tell your viewers that it is possible to focus the thoughts so much that you no longer even feel the heat of a candle flame. To demonstrate this, first ask a spectator to hold his hand over the candle flame to feel the heat of the fire. After he’s convinced of that, have your hands checked. To make sure that your hands are empty and you haven’t hidden anything up your sleeve, roll up your sleeves (you really have nothing to hide).
You pause for a moment, focus your thoughts and slowly, a little hesitant at first, start to hold your hand over the candle. After a short moment you don’t seem to mind holding your outstretched hand over the candle flame.
After a while, remove your hand from the candle and show your viewers that it is unharmed.
Now ask the viewer to focus his thoughts as well. He should imagine that he can control his feelings in such a way that he will have no feeling for the heat of the candle. For example, he should imagine how a thick layer of ice covers his hands. When he’s ready, take his hand and hold it over the flame for a moment, he won’t really feel a thing!
Let go of the viewer’s hand and blow out the candle, if you like, you can hand it over to the viewer as a souvenir.
