Hey, thanks a lot for this - I was looking for really easy but really effective tricks and this looks great. Can't wait to try it out. I wonder if it'll work with johnnies(?) dental rubber might be difficult to get hold of :)

Thanks again
ps - I signed up so I could comment to this ;)

Welcome to Instructables!

Do you mean condoms? They might work, but cutting a piece out of the side of a large party balloon will works great.

That was a well done trick!  I like how the people who see the trick can examine the items too.  It makes it really difficult to figure out.

Very Cool !

 Thaaaaaat was pretty awesome. Great job!

can you use latex gloves

If the glove can be inflated like a balloon then I think so. The back of the hand part of a large one should work. Some gloves are "powdered" and you most likely would have to wash that off first. Let us know if it works.

what??? how does that work!? that didnt make any sense

Capt. Kidd (author)ItsTheHobbs2009-07-06

watch the whole vid lol

cool! (author)2009-05-04

Lol, my teacher had some "Dental Latex" lying around, I showed it to everyone. I, too, learned it from the Klutz magic book. FYI put the coin on a lipstick tube or gluestick, makes it much easier to set up.


Welcome Mate! :-)
