Used Match

You search for a match -- but can only find used matches. But when you strike a used match it lights perfectly!

Prep Work

This trick is all in the prep work -- taking new matches and modifying them so that they appear to be used.

How? Just dip the match heads in black ink, let them dry, then dip them in some ashes. The matches will look used but will light as new.
