WAYNE HOUCHIN PRODUCTS
Grand Illusions is proud to feature Wayne Houchin's creations.
ThreadIn 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&Es Mindfreak went on to become a worldwide success and WHs THREAD has become one of the most talked about and sought after effects from the series.
Sinful - Graphic Novel and DVD
Effect: A signed coin magically penetrates through a sealed can of soda or beer. The can is opened, the contents poured out and trapped inside is the initialed coin. The effect can be performed anywhere, at anytime with no special props, no switches, no gimmicks, and no setup. Both the coin and the can may be borrowed. In fact, the spectator can keep the can with their signed coin trapped inside.
Control - by Wayne Houchinstopping your heart. Demonstrating control over life and death is one of the most powerful things you can do. In this comprehensive DVD, Wayne Houchin (Sinful, Thread and Stigmata) takes you through the entire effect from incredible live performances to the technique and the subtleties that allow you to transform this routine from a trick into a miracle. Effect: A volunteer holds your wrist and takes your pulse. They feel your heart beating a steady rhythm and you ask them to count along with it. You close your eyes and take a deep breath. Your volunteer feels your pulse gradually slow down and completely stop. Nothing. After a few deep breaths your heart starts beating again and they feel your pulse gradually return.

Distortion - by Wayne Houchin
Twist their thoughts. Distort perception.A collaboration with ideas from Wayne Houchin, Michael Ammar, Kenneth Peh, and Jonathan Bayme. A card is chosen. In this case, it's the Six of Diamonds. The Four of Diamonds is also used. You clearly place the Six of Diamonds in the spectator's closed hands (in a sandwich manner), holding on to the Four of Diamonds.
As you slowly shake the Four, the pips -- that is, the diamonds -- are seen to visually multiply and move across the card to form the Six of Diamonds. The spectator opens their hands to find the Four of Diamonds, and all is handed out for complete examination.$29.95Out of stock

A single NeedleUnlike card tricks or coin tricks, the needle swallow is something that seems somehow.. real.
There’s a simplicity to this version of the needle swallowing that we think, surpasses all those that have come previously. One needle is swallowed, a volunteer holds a piece of thread, and essentially fishes it out. The story the audience is presented with is clear, and absolutely insane.
