For the trick to work, the background or the backdrop has to be dark. The best color is black. The mesh that is used for the magic trick should be made of nylon material and can either be black or transparent.
When the trick is about to be completed, the off stage assistant who controlled the strings earlier should raise the uncovered screen completely out of view so they won’t see any strings and making sure that the stage is clear.
There are many versions of the levitation magic trick and using string and an assistant is just one of them. There is one where you can make yourself levitate and make you go one foot off the ground but for that to work; you will need to saw a block of wood that is smaller than your foot.
This is then placed on your trouser leg and then when you are ready, you bend over and remove it pretending that you are tying your shoe but what you are really trying to do is put the block on the floor and then hide this behind the shoe. You then hop up on the block with one foot and float a few inches of the ground.
People can catch on to how you did this magic trick so don’t stay too long up there. You can avoid this by dropping down fast and telling everyone that it takes a lot of effort to do this so you can’t stay up there for so long.
