    A signed coin is perfectly fine - however if you're liking the signed coin in sealed pack of gum premise, you might want to check out Lockdown.

    All the best,

    Which size of gum?

    Hi,
    I am really interested in buying Confinement by Phil DaCosta. In his video, he used a pack of 5 gum. Wrigeley just created a micro pack of 5 gum(6 pieces, smaller package). I wonder if you could use the micro pack instead of the regular pack of gum.

    Without seeing it, I can't be positive. However, given the method, I think it could be adjusted to a smaller package without much trouble, as long as the general configuration of the box is the same.

    I don't know if this will help but take a look at this, http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_u...?v=pQ9drioQ_yk I'm still not sure on buying Confinement because I dont have a lot of money to buy new packs of gum each time. The micro pack can save me $1 each pack.

    I think you'll be able to do it, but you'll have to make some adjustments to the techniques.

    As far as I understand they are different methods, though visually similar.
