Another beautiful Mummy!!

What’s better than one Mummy…why, TWO Mummies. This new version of the classic Warner Mummy, named appropriately Mummy II, is gorgeous. Granted, no radical changes have occurred in overall design and method (but who wants to mess with a true masterpiece), there are some very nice new improvements. This is the first Mummy made by Alan using ALL teak components. The open coffin is all teak and finished in a satin varnish, thus sealing the natural oils that have a tendency to stain the mummy’s wrapping. Previous coffins used clear plastic curved ends and at one time the base was painted black. The hieroglyphics on the new rectangular wooden plague adds more to the Egyptian theme than the "shiny" golden plaque in the original. The mummy itself has a new head similar to the one used in Cairo Con. The choice of gemstone on the sarcophagus I received is very beautiful. This has always been one of Alan’s hallmark pieces and no Warner collection is complete without a Mummy. Most Highly Recommended!

Finally Alan Warner has bought back his Mummy!

So after a long time Alan Warner is back making one of his favorite effects: the Mummy!

The new version is even better than the original, if that is possible, with more teak work, and some enhancements to the smoothness of the opertation and performance.

So, if you have been trying to track one of these down, now maybe is the time you can get one. It is sure to be a hit and is most highly recommended. $link(https://warner.qualitymagic.com/?html=full&key=1698 target=warner,more-info) for the effect.

Great magic in a very small package

This is a very cute effect. You have a small teak case divided into two adjacent compartments. One side holds a miniature red deck of cards and the other has a blue back deck. One deck is chosen and a card selected in a fair manner. The selected card is inserted in the compartment with the opposite colored deck with the purpose of finding its match in that deck. The case is covered with a teak cover exhibiting a contrasting white/blue banding. The selected card is revealed and the magician is shocked to hear the identity of the card for it is known as the karate kard. He removes the cover and finds that the red deck has been chopped up in its compartment and only one red card remains intact next to the selected card. They match. Beautiful props and clever method, all in one very small package. This is more micro than mini magic for Alan. Love it, but you have to love everything that Alan makes.

So small yet so cool!

Its amazing how small this beautiful effect by Alan Warner is. It’s an old discontinued item that Alan Warner has recently revived. And I’m glad he did!

The effect is very clean, convincing and entertaining and can be read $link(https://warner.qualitymagic.com/?html=full&key=1697 target=warner,here).

It’s been a while since I have picked up one of Alan’s beauties and its so nice to see his greatness continues. This effect is precisely and beautifully made and highly recommended!
