How Do You Bend a Spoon With Your Hand?
Bending a spoon is a classic magic trick that’s easy to learn. You grab a spoon and press down on it with your hand, and suddenly the spoon bends right before your eyes. This is a great trick for new magicians to learn because it’s surprisingly easy to do and you can do it with any spoon, even ones that are weak or made of a metal mixture that doesn’t break easily.
There are different ways to do the trick, but here are a few basics:
Use a coin
In most magic tricks, it’s best to use something that won’t harm your hands or other objects. You can also use a coin in some of the simpler tricks, like folding a spoon or fork. However, if you are going to fold a spoon or fork, it’s best to use a spoon that is not very large, such as a teaspoon, because the spoon can easily slip out of your hands and you won’t have to worry about it breaking.
To perform the trick, hide the stem of the spoon in your hand and hold the straight stem in place as you bend it back and forward. When you’re ready, slowly release your grip on the straight stem and let it fall to rest on top of the spoon’s already bent stem. Then, pull the pre-bent spoon out of your hand and show it to your audience for inspection!
This is a fun and easy way to practice the technique before you try it in front of a live audience. You can even have a friend hold the spoon while you’re doing it so that they can witness it for themselves.
Make sure the spoon is free of any dents or scratches before you perform this trick so that your spectators don’t have to worry about any damage to their hands. It’s also a good idea to get several types of spoons and practice with all of them before you show them to an audience so that you know which one works the best.
When you’re performing this trick, you should be careful to not let your hands clunk together in the middle of bending the spoon. This can be distracting to your audience, so you should palm the broken handle into your fist and then slide it up out of your fist with your other hand. This will distract your audience and keep them focused on the spoon while you’re bending it.
If you don’t want to use a spoon, you can do this trick with a hammer or screwdriver, too! Just be sure to keep the hammer away from your face or the table, or it will look like you’re bending it with your bare hands.
You should also be careful when you do this trick in front of a live audience, as the hammer will be very noticeable to everyone. You can also use a rubber band instead of a hammer to do the trick, but you’ll need to make sure that the hammer doesn’t break off during the performance.
