In spring 2013 we decided to release our invention MetalWriting to the magic world. At first, nobody believed the effect to be genuine, but after a visit to Wizard Product Review, a Swedish Championship in Magic and good reviews from some of magics foremost magicians the effect received strong reviews and reactions.
MetalWriting allows you to predict any written message as an engraving in a metal surface. What makes MetalWriting unique is that you can do it without any dual reality, stooges, forces, pre-show work or hidden assistants. It is a simple and direct way of engraving a prediction on an amulet or another of our products. The engraving is approximately 0.5 millimetres deep and can be examined by the spectators.
Metatwriting is a new concept in magic and mentalism. It is not only a trick and one effect, instead the method has its own theory. Within Metalwriting we have specific techniques, subtleties, methods, theory and handlings that enables the performer to create different effects and presentations. What was a release of one idea back in 2012 have grown to a large range of different products and supplements, and the concept is still growing.
Our primary aim is for the solo performer who can do all of our routines himself in front of the audience. Since we know by experience that there just isn’t enough time before a gig to prepare certain tricks, we wanted a strong revelation that worked in real time without any fuss before the show. MetalWriting gives you that.
The 2:nd of March 2013 Andreas Sebring & Arkadia won the Special Innovation Award at the Swedish Championship for Magicians.
MetalWriting came to us one night late when we were discussing the benefits for a single performer to have an engraved prediction on a metal surface. (We also discussed other important issues - such as the difference between the two beer brands - Staropramen and Slatopramen.) We wanted an effect where the magician did not use the classic methods with the difficulties they require. We wanted it plain and simple. It was a wonderful dream.
In a creative rush a brilliant solution came to us. (The beer had surely nothing to do with it!) The brilliance turned out as a failure of big proportions but we did not let this hinder us in our struggle for perfection. We don't relinquish easily. After many experiments, we found that wonderful new method of accomplishing what we set out to do. The concept has been tested during huge stage shows in Sweden as well as small parlour settings at corporate gigs. Two years of product development in front of live audiences have fine tuned the product line.
Up to this point, we have kept our discovery a secret but after a few years, we have decided to share our completely new discovery with the magic community. Something that the magical world has never seen or experienced. We have MetalWriting.
The creators of MetalWriting are Andreas Sebring and Arkadia. Two brothers with a burning love for magic.
Andreas works as a product developer, inventor and teacher. He performs magic whenever he has the opportunity and loves to test out his crazy new ideas. Almost every routine in his personal repertoire is handmade by him self and he hand crafts everything in the MetalWriting project. This is how we guarantee the quality and affection in all of our products.
Arkadia is a professional magician and performs mainly at corporate events, streets and festivals. His real name is Anders which is confusingly close to his brothers name. Hence we use the stage name. His career started on the streets of Sweden as a 14 year old boy. Arkadia handles all the graphic design, editing, webb and so on.
