The magician displays what appears to be an ordinary empty paper cup. He pours water into the cup and then proceed to push a pencil right through the cup and there are no leaks! The magican can even turn the cup upside and the liquid has apparently vanished! This is just one of many, many uses for this incredible powder that will instantly "gel" most liquids. Add a partial teaspoon into that cup of coffee the waitress just poured. The coffee is now solid with the spoon sticking up out of the middle of the coffee like a flagpole! "Waitress, just how old is this coffee?" You get the picture. Just don't eat it. Its not fit for human consumption. 001CBMSLUSH
