About Flash Paper Magic
Delight audiences with the bright flare of magic flash paper. This unique type of paper catches fire very easily, burns fast, and burns brightly. It looks almost like a flash in a pan, which is very eye-catching and great for distracting the audience while you perform sleight of hand. Also known as nitrocellulose, thin paper is coated in nitric acid and allowed to dry until slightly shiny and hard. It was a popular choice for vintage magic tricks, such as the flash paper rose trick where the magician makes a real rose appear from a flash of light and smoke. Usually, the rose is given to an audience member afterwards. You can find plenty of magic flash paper through the large inventory on eBay. The paper is available in small sheets, as flash cotton balls, or even in the form of playing cards and fake paper money to further enhance your magic tricks. With a little practice, you can incorporate a few bright flashes into your on-stage routine using this paper. Make sure to get plenty for your magic kit.
