When Garrett Thomas introduced THE RING THING at the famous FFFF invitation-only close-up magic convention, some of the top close-up magicians in the world were asking to see it over and over again. Luminaries such as David Blaine, Jeff McBride, Gregory Wilson and many others have asked Garrett to teach them this fabulous impromptu routine. Why? Because it looks like real magic! And now, every detail of THE RING THING can be yours- Garrett Thomas has held nothing back.
THE RING THING looks like trick photography . . . but it's not! It's a quick, visual, impromptu miracle that you can do right before their eyes. You pull off your finger ring, toss it back towards your other hand . . . and it visibly appears back on your finger!
Garrett doesn't just stop at teaching THE RING THING. This DVD is a post-graduate course in finger ring magic. Of course, effects that can be performed at a moment's notice and with no preparation are some of the most valuable tricks to know and finger rings are everyday objects that are always available. Imagine visibly taking a ring on and off right through your finger! Imagine visibly changing a coin into a ring and then back into a coin again! Imagine causing an invisible ring to really become visible! All of this . . . and much more . . . are revealed in Garrett Thomas' THE RING THING!
Running Time Approximately 57min
finger ring or key ring
thin medium-sized rubber band
1.With your right hand, grab 4/5 of the rubber band (doubled over itself) and pinch it with your right forefinger and thumb. Hide the rest of the rubber band in your closed right fist.
2.On the protruding piece, thread the ring.
3.With your left hand, hold the rubber band in between your left thumb and forefingers.
4.Stretch the rubber band as tightly as it will go (should only be about4-5″ since most of the band is hidden in your hand).
5.Demonstrate how much movement is needed to make the ring move down/up the rubber band (it usually takes at least a 45 degree angle).
6.Lower your right hand so that the ring is at the bottom of the slope, near your thumb and forefinger.
7.Hold your arms steady (you can even have them held by a spectator) and begin to stare intently at the rubber band.
8.Slowly release the tension between your right thumb and forefinger. As the tension is released, you will see the ring slowly “move” up the band!
