Now you can perform miraculous magic with an everyday object.....RUBBER BANDS! They're everywhere you are; at work, school, in your desk, in the car, and in your pocket. Now you can use this everyday item to stun people with these astounding effects! Ben Salinas shows you how to make rubber bands...
Ben Salinas introduces a great series full of incredible impromptu magic with rubber bands. These are tricks that can be done absolutely anywhere and at any time. So, grab some rubber bands and let's get started.
From the magical mind of Dan Harlan comes Linking Bands, a perplexing rubber band trick worthy of kicking off this series chock-full of fun rubber band illusions for all ages and skill levels. Your spectator will rub the two separate bands together and physically feel as they inexplicable link wi...
The Arthur Setterington's Penetrating Bands is easily the most popular and practiced rubber band trick in magic. After you watch Ben perform it, you'll understand why. This is magic that happens right before your eyes. Even if the spectator never takes their eyes off the bands, they won't be able...
In this move, the rubber band just can't seem to stay in one place for long. It jumps between your fingers until it eventually tires out, then it'll return to its starting place. That's not all though, for a big finish the rubber band will even disappear into thin air, never to be seen again. Ben...
Ben presents a positively killer ending to the previous trick, the Jumping Bands. Max Malini was a famous conjurer from many years ago, and when he would perform the routine, instead of putting each finger under the band, Malini would only put two. The result? The band would fly over the spectato...
This is the Jumping Band taken one step further. You're going to make this move a little more impossible by adding a guard. With a different colored band that you'll wrap around the tops of each of your fingers, you'll create a makeshift fence that is designed to keep the main band from escaping ...
As one might assume from the name, Double Jumping Bands is just that - the Jumping Bands move doubled. You'll start with two different colored bands that will ultimately switch places on your fingers. This is done using the same technique as the two jumping band routines prior. It's double the tr...
This method comes from Willi Schneider, a famous Austrian magician, and medium. You'll wrap the band around your wrist twice, ensuring the impossibility of what you're about to do next. As you start yanking on the band, the crowd will fear you'll break it - but on the third yank, something unexpl...
This torn and restored move from Walter Rollins is a real crowd-pleaser. One second you're snapping the band in half, rendering it irreparable and useless. The next second, though, you've accomplished the impossible. You have restored the band back to its original, unbroken state. How did you do ...
Now, we take a bit of a comical turn. Ben demonstrates a funny little move where the rubber band actually shoots straight up your... you guessed it, right up your nose! Who knew that your nose could be should a nifty little hiding place? What else could you hide up there?
This move may look like an inconceivable feat, but it's actually quite simple when you really get down to it. Ben demonstrates and explains the secrets behind the infamous rubber band trick, Rising Ring on Band. It'll look as if you've honed the ability to move things with just your mind, no phys...
You're going to need to borrow a Sharpie for this move. You'll wrap the band around it a few times, really making it stick on the marker. It really looks like it's completely trapped on there. Ben will show you how to remove it in a flash, though. Proving that maybe it wasn't so stuck on there af...
In this tutorial, Ben teaches how to effortlessly diffuse a rubber band through your thumb in front of an audience that will be studying and scrutinizing your every move. After they watch you masterfully complete this move, they won't have anything to critique. They won't even be able to comprehe...
Ben presents a nice simplification of the Thumb Penetration move from the previous video created by Dan Harlan. You get the same astonishing result, with less of the sometimes clunky or confusing hand movements. In a swift move from both hands, you're in the same set up as before, and ready to co...
Here's a little quickie called Snap... because it can be done in a snap. You'll start with a deck of cards with two rubber bands on it. In a snap, you'll free the top card from its rubber imprisonment. The other cards will be left behind, though, unmoved and still trapped.
How can you make a trick with bands twice as exciting? By adding another band into the mix. Ben demonstrates how to make a second band appear out of thin air to double the shock and awe of your audience.
In this move by U.F. Grant, the spectator's card will literally come flying out of the deck. You'll need just two rubber bands and a marker to make this trick really take off. Just as the spectator has begun to believe their card has been lost, you'll spring into action with this flashy finish.
Sometimes it's just so hard to find your spectator's card. It's even harder to cut to the exact spot it's hiding within a deck of 52 cards. So, why don't you make it easier? By just adding in some rubber bands you can have a deck that magically cuts the deck for you. That's not even the best part...
Ben provides the explanation behind another little quickie called the Y-Not. To perform this move you'll need two different rubber bands that are noticeably different colors. You'll also need to borrow one finger from an audience member. The rest will happen in a flash. One second one of the colo...
Using a dollar bill and rubber band, you'll two paper clips join, magically. A little bit of strategic folding and a quick yank, the paper clips will interlock with each other AND the rubber band. If you set it up correctly and pull on the band fast enough, the reaction will happen so quickly tha...
This is a very impossible way to find a card. In learning Criss Cross, you'll discover how to find your spectator's card from within a deck that's been circled by two different rubber bands. You'll give the deck a little shake and their card will come mysteriously popping out.
Ben demonstrates how to do Ben Stone's Thumb Thru. In this move, the band will go literally pass through your thumb. The audience won't believe their eyes when even after they've tested the band themselves, it still manages to escape. It's quite puzzling, alright.
Ben teaches you how to make the elusive five-point rubber band star. A quick and easy showoff move that's visually appealing for all. This is the perfect move for in-between acts that you'll love to have in your back pocket.
The Two Way Stretch is probably the hottest move in rubber band magic that you'll ever see. It's the perfect follow-up move to your torn and restored trick because you'll finish with one singular band. The audience will believe you've started with two separate bands... but little do they know, th...
This is the band trick that actually uses your mouth. You'll impress viewers when you are able to tie a perfect knot within the band after you've placed it in your mouth. It's just like that old bar trick with a cherry stem that everyone used to try and do. You'll need two rubber bands for this m...
This is a fun one hand flourish that's relatively easy to learn. It's the perfect piece for in-between your heavier pieces of rubber band magic. With just a little digit maneuvering and a flick, the band will spin around your index finger not unlike how a basketball does when you spin it on a sin...
This is Ben's version of the classic Martin Gardner's Deck Twist. But instead of a deck, you'll only need a willing spectator's wrist for this. You'll wrap the band around their wrist a couple of times, be careful of getting it too snug. Then, after three slight tugs on the band, it'll curiously ...
From the brilliant mind of Ken Simmons comes this masterful band trick called A Band-Ment. You'll snap your fingers and immediately the band you just wrapped around the deck disappears. You'll snap them once again and it magically reappears - but it's now in a different spot. Now it's only wrappe...
Have you been looking for a move to find your spectator's card that's equal parts enthralling as it is shocking? Well, look no further than this band trick called Back-Handed. Your spectator will place their chosen card back into the deck and after a few cuts, you'll wrap a band around it twice. ...
Now for something a little bit different. You'll start with a couple of rubber bands and interweave them through your fingers in such a way that nothing could ever hope to get past them. That's where you're wrong though. Using a ring and a little bit of magic, you can make that piece of jewelry p...
This is a version of the classic Thumb Tie routine in magic that is usually done with wire or string. This version uses, you guessed it, a rubber band. You'll fasten your thumbs together using the rubber band so that you are unable to separate your hands. This would make it impossible for any obj...
For this trick, you'll need to borrow a ring from the audience. This way you'll be able to reassure them that there is no possible way any funny business is going on. You're going to mix the ring and the band together so much that they actually become one. Somehow, someway, you have interlocked t...
Ben performs and explains the steps behind Bill Kalush's legendary link, the fittingly named Kalush Link. If you enjoyed the previous linking a ring on a band, you're going to love this one. You'll need to borrow another ring from an audience member, you'll be linking it to a band once more - but...
Now you're ready for the illustrious Spread Suspension. This is a great trick to throw in with either your card or band magic. In-between moves, wow your crowd by showing off your crazy ability to make cards float in midair as you ask them to pick a card... any floating card.
This move by Chad Sanborn is the master of all linking tricks when it comes to band magic. After this short, but in-depth tutorial and a little bit of practice you'll be able to skillfully link two separate bands. You'll easily bind the two rubber bands together, and then, just as easily, you'll ...
You may truly be doing to the unimaginable here. You going to let an audience member actually use a pair of scissors and cut through both of the bands you have in your hands. How could you possibly fix them? They've been snipped... cut in half... broken beyond repair. There's nothing you can do. ...
You may have guessed: you'll need a volunteer for this next move. Like the Thru Thumb or Taking Martin by the Hand, you're going to fasten the band around a spectator's finger. Just like before, you're going to learn how to make that seemingly securely fastened band pass right through their finge...
You're finally ready for a Ben Salinas original. In this terrific move, you'll truly make serious magic happen. Two separate, normal bands become one mega-band with just a little bit of friction. Your fingers are the catalyst in this reaction, with just a little bit of rubbing the bands together ...
Last but not least is Ben's version of Band Thru Wrist called the Hypertonic. You start with a mega-band doubled-up, to increase its strength... This way, no one will question its ability to withstand some tugging from your where it's placed on your wrist. As strong as the doubled-up band is, tho...
