I did but there was a lot of shrinkage and they turned blue. I had to use the palming technique to get them back to their original size and color. :-)

Re: Greetings All . . .

Hello Kent and welcome to the best and most friendliest magic forum on the web! It's great to have another magic creator on the forum. I too have ideas for table top illusions but unfortunately, I do not have the design/construction knowledge to bring my ideas to life. :-( So until I acquire such sk...

Re: New 2017 Tenyo Line Coming Out on Thursday Sept.22

I attended the Live Magic Expo here in Nashville TN today and guess what was on sale at the sign in table?.....The 2017 Tenyo line! So, I purchased the Perpetual Puzzle and the Magic Maze. The Expo was demonstrating all brand new magic. All of the the demonstrators were great but most of the effects...

Re: New 2017 Tenyo Line Coming Out on Thursday Sept.22

I believe I didn't do a very good job at communicating in my original post on Sept. 29th. As a collector, I love the cleaver design and thinking behind the micro illusions created by Tenyo, Magiro, Magic Wagon, etc. Tenyo magic is what got me into these small illusions in the first place. My only di...

Re: New 2017 Tenyo Line Coming Out on Thursday Sept.22

The reason has been mentioned Gaz: Tenyo offers these tricks to children and Japanese laymen who want to spend only a few bucks on an item. Making tricks as they used to would be too expensive for their main customers. One would think Tenyo could cater to both the layman and the hard core collector...

Re: New 2017 Tenyo Line Coming Out on Thursday Sept.22

Every year for the past several years I've hoped to see Tenyo release at least one micro illusion (like the Tenyo of old) and every year I am disappointed. I am no more interested in the 2017 line up as I was in the 2016 effects. :-( I may purchase the puzzle effect. Not because I think it is magica...

Re: Got Lucky on an auction win

After winning this auction, I started playing with Telesphere for the first time in years.
It truely is a remarkable effect that is quite magical to view. Tenyo collectors owe it to themselves to add this piece to their collection if they don't already have it.

Tenyo - Coin thru match

For those of you who already own "Coin thru Match," is this piece worth adding to my collection?
After reading about it in Tenyoism, I'm thinking I may be passing up on something good.

Does anyone have any information about this Japanese magic company called DR Group. On rara occasions I have come across some tricks by this company but because I know nothing about them or the quality of their magic, I never buy. Their magic appears to be "Tenyo" like.
