Tarbell 57: Spirit Tablets
For a long time slates as so-called spirit boards of spiritualists at theirs seances used. Magicians also use them, but only for the purpose of entertaining deception.
The basic principle behind the use of such tablets is that writing mysteriously appears on a blank tablet. while the spiritualists claiming that the spirits of the deceased were their authors, the magicians admit that they use sophisticated methods of deception.
In this lesson you will get an overview of the various technical tricks to make such ghost writing appear on empty boards.
