After purchasing and practicing these effects, I discovered that I could get some very nice audience reaction by putting an entire deck of cards to sleep, instantly building a house out of it, magically turning it into an ice palace, and then making the whole thing disappear in the blink of an eye.

A commentor on one of my posts asked how Criss Angel made an elephant vanish. I haven’t seen that particular episode of Mindfreak, but it is well known that Angel uses the old “inflatable elephant” gimmick. With a slightly over-inflated elephant, the prick of a pin is all it takes to explosively decompress the “animal,” which can then be quickly removed from sight or hidden beneath a nearby curtain or assistant.
