Q. Do I Need Props or Gimmicks?
There's no special props or gimmicks, I do suggest that you get your hands on a lot of cheap cutlery, once you have mastered Spoon-bending you will get really excited at first. I have had complaints that families have sat down to eat dinner only to find that someone has bent every piece of cutlery in the house. I recommend that you start with thin inexpensive cutlery that you can buy cheap at the big box stores. As you develop your skill in spoon-bending, work up to heavier metals. My personal favorite spoons are old antique spoons made of silver I find at antique stores, but that can get expensive.
Q. Is this a magic trick?

Retired Boeing Engineer Jack Houck hosted "PK Parties" (psychokinesis parties) 1981-1988 where 85% among thousands of participants are claimed to have accomplished spoon bending personally.
Author Michael Crichton described his successful experience with spoon bending at a psychokinesis party in his 1988 book Travels: I looked down. My spoon had begun to bend. I hadn't even realized. The metal was completely pliable, like soft plastic. It wasn't particularly hot, either, just slightly warm. ... I had bent a spoon, and I knew it wasn't a trick. I looked around the room and saw little children, eight or nine years old, bending large metal bars. They weren't trying to trick anybody. — Michael Crichton, Travels, 1988, pages 319–320
Parapsychologist and author Dean Radin has reported that he was able to bend the bowl of a spoon over with unexplained ease of force with witnesses present at an informal psychokinesis experiment gathering in 2000. I was much more skeptical about such claims until one day I personally folded the bowl of a large, heavy soup spoon in half with a gentle touch, and with half a dozen witnesses present. I later tested to see if I could do this again with a similar spoon using ordinary force. I couldn't budge the bowl without the assistance of two pairs of pliers and some serious leverage. — Dean Radin, Entangled Minds, page 331 Maureen Caudill, a trainer associated with the Monroe Institute, claims this is significantly easier to achieve when performed in groups rather than alone.
