From magician Wayne Houchin, creator of Sinful (Quarter Through Soda Can), Stigmata, Indecent, Ultragaff and Control - comes THREAD, an effect during which a length of thread is seemingly pulled through the performer's mouth and out of his eye.
In 2000, Wayne Houchin created an effect that would become his opener for the better part of the next decade. The concept was strange yet exciting. Raw, visual, and striking in its simplicity. Four years later, WH was brought in to consult on a groundbreaking new project: the first weekly magic television series in 40 years. A&E's Mindfreak went on to become a worldwide success and WH's THREAD has become one of the most talked about and sought after effects from the series.
THREAD is intended for the serious performer only. On this DVD WH performs and reveals The Geek Method - the exact method and presentation he has used to open his performances for almost a decade. He then teaches The Sleight Method, which is based entirely in sleight of hand and can be performed safely.

The second method is called the sleight method. This method will need a gimmick that you can make yourself. Once you have the gimmick around, you won't need to do any set up at all. This method might be as not visual as the first one, but it is still the same effect and the same reaction from audiences. For those who doesn't want to do the geek method, I think this is a very good alternate handling that gives pretty much same thing.
Also, he teaches a bonus effect you can do with thread, which could make a nice routine with the main tricks. Or you can even do the tricks separately. The bonus trick is torn-restored thread. It's easy to do, a little set up needed.
The idea of pulling thread out of the eye is crazy and it really does get people reaction! So, don't miss this. You won't see many tricks that can get this HUGE reaction from people.
