Salinas presents two ideas from Bobby Baxter. The Mayfair Mountebank gives you two really clever ways to not only make a sponge ball vanish into thin air but also to make it reappear right before your volunteer's eyes.
Inspired a move by Audley Walsh found in his 1947 book Sponge Ball Manipulation, the quick vanish is quite literally just that. A very quick and deceptive vanish that is sure to fool any and every spectator.
Here we have another bluff vanish. You will be doing the actions of the previous bluff vanish, but instead of tossing the ball back and forth, you'll be rolling it on your hand until poof! It's disappeared!
This is a great vanish for the platform. The Pretend Place Vanish is a retention of vision vanish wherein you'll have your audience believe their attention has never left the ball. So, when you open your hand again to reveal the ball has disappeared, they'll be totally and completely surprised by...
Here's a funky little move called the 'Squeeze' Vanish. You may have guessed it... you'll be squeezing the ball until it actually vanishes. Smashed into nothingness. When your hand re-opens, it's gone!
You start with two sponge balls. You hand one to a spectator and place the other in your pocket for safe-keeping. Or maybe you didn't, because when the spectator opens their hand... what's there? Both of the sponge balls.
