My next book,Â The Prop Effects Guidebook, is due out this coming February. WhereÂ The Prop Building Guidebook taught you how to construct the physical props, this new book will teach you how to do all the magic effects that a prop person is called on to provide.
I filmed a series of companion videos to the book which demonstrate the techniques and effects presented within its pages. I will be posting these videos to my blog over the next three months as we approach the book’s release date.
The first video is on blood bags, one of the essential tools for any play with a blood effect. I demonstrate how to make one using an impulse sealer.
You can pre-order The Prop Effects GuidebookÂ now at most major retailers. It will not be released in time for Christmas, but if you need a gift,Â The Prop Building Guidebook is sure to please the props person in your life.
