Eye Candy – Frequently Asked Questions
How Safe is “Eye Candy”, really?
There is a reason why we designed this effect based on “Tic Tacs”, a LIGHTWEIGHT object with a POLISHED, SMOOTH surface. This is a much, much safer object than other choices previously used in magic plots involving the eye. As long as you know what you are doing at all times, you would be very safe. So please watch the ENTIRE tutorial and learn carefully; we did everything from our side to produce the safest prop and detailed teaching, it’s your job to take good care of yourself during performance.
Is this product a consumable? Do I need to buy refills?
Our gimmick is designed to be reusable and built to last. The only refills you need to buy are the Real Tic Tacs that you actually eat! (OUR PRODUCT DOES NOT COME WITH REALTIC TACS.)
How long is the setup time like?
Less than 30 seconds. You can setup anywhere as long as you are not seen (a bathroom break would work). The carrying case is designed to help you setup from beginning to the end, so it should be very straightforward.
