Liquid Penetration also known as 'Crazy Liquid'

The Effect

The performer shows three clear glasses. They are stacked one on top of the other in a vertical column.

He also shows three other glasses or jugs, with three different colored liquids in them. He pours the liquid of one color into the top glass of the stack, almost to the top. Nothing magical so far.
He then pours the liquid of another color into the upper most glass, and then liquid magically flows into the middle glass of the stack.

Finally the liquid of the third color is poured into the upper most glass, and mysteriously penetrates into the lower most glass of the stack. The three glasses are separated, showing each glass containing the different colored liquids.

Special glasses make it happen.

Easy to do good effect!!!!

Its self working so it has to be a 1.


Okay so I thought this looked like a nice little trick, full of colour and easy to do... I had the idea of playing the part of a barman making a cocktail and the different ingredients of the cocktail would be in place of the coloured liquid and finaly i'd seperate the glasses and then mix the liquids together and hand an audience member a tasty beverage... gratis.
What a visionary I am eh :wink:

I received the trick two weeks ago and decided to read throught the instructions... it all seemed straight forward enough, in fact I was so sure of myself I just called my wife into the room to show her it straight away... thats how easy it is to do.

I did everything perfectly but oh no!!! the glasses are leaking so the liquids not only dont penetrate each other but mix together and collect in the bottom glass and make a very (not) attractve brownish colour.

A manufacturing error, oh well I'll send them back and get a replacement (which by the way put me out of pocket by having to post them back to the supplier) so I got my replacement set through the post yesterday and decided to call my wife back into the room to redeem myself from my totally understandable failure the last time.... and guess what?

Yes they leak aswell!!!

I now have no faith whatsoever in the manufacturer to produce a trick that actually works and I now suspect they are secret partners with royal mail and are making fortunes in costing people to send their faulty piece of c*** (not the best) back to them time and time again.

Dont buy it ever.

Are you kidding? For 24 bucks it should have at least worked! Sounded like the potential was there though... Very unique trick and haven't heard of anything like it.
