Mental Pen by João Miranda and Gustavo Sereno

Mental Pen is one of those special tools that every magician should carry around! So innocent, so very smart!

 

breakdown::

what: special tool

type of magic: strolling, close-up, stand-up

item: one sharpie marker and 3 gimmicks (downloadable instruction and “assets”)

skill level: beginner

DIY: no

reset time: few sec (I would reset this privately)

angle: 360º

extra expense: optional (depends on whatever routine you choose to do)

the instructions::

on the 42min long video (link and password is on a piece of paper, inside the packaging) (English speaking):

  • João Miranda introducing the tool and it’s possibilities
  • Opening the packaging (what will you receive)
  • The Secret (understanding the mechanics, movements presentation)
  • 5 routines taught (card trick, newspaper, maps, voodoo doll idea with t-shirt reveal, “soup letter” magazine)

the assets::

download zip format (13.3MB) including:

  • printable Salt Lake City postcard front and back
  • T-shirt preview image
  • printable USA map
  • T- shirt print
  • printable voodoo card

additional thoughts::

I love the method, and all the hard work that went into creating this wonderful tool. I totally recommend this to anyone from beginners to pro performers! I love how much full, audience-tested routines you are getting, but also the freedom to create your own ideas and routines using Mental Pen! I think it’s one of those props that every magician should carry in their pocket. note: over time when replacing the sharpie, a possible “touch up” action needed to maintain the function of the gimmick.
