Before you buy any
Dollar Store instructions, go to your local Dollar Store (Quid
Store in the U.K.) and make sure you can get the ingredients. Not
all Dollar Stores are alike and you may have to hunt through
several to find just what you need to make these magic props.
We show you how to make your own Magic Milk
Pitcher using a glass or plastic pitcher from the Dollar Store
and a bottle of soda or shampoo. Don't buy anything until you get
the instructions, but do go looking for a nice clear glass
pitcher or a clear plastic pitcher. Once you've located them, if
you are still enthusiastic about the project, send for the
instructions and then we'll explain how to actually go shopping
to buy exactly the right kind of pitcher you need and try it out
for size in the store right under the noses of the baffled
clerks. If it all fits, the ingredients should cost you a buck
for the Milk Pitcher and another buck for the gimmick.
Our instructions will guide you through
fitting the two items together to make a Magic Milk Pitcher that
vanishes milk, but once we have started you down the road to DIY
magic, you may just find you want to keep going and make our
BONUS Foo Can to make milk or water (or a raw egg) vanish,
AND/ORa Lota bowl to make liquids appear, AND/OR a Ghost Tube for
a small production of silks. You can even make your own Multum In
Parvo set of plastic Dollar Store glasses if you can find
everything in the various sizes you will need. For that you'll
need some more gimmicks plus one easy to get gimmicked gimmick.
You'll also need some plastic waterproof glue. It's all explained
in the instructions.
