Signed and Sealed X2

Hover Card by Dan Harlan
Signed and Sealed X2

A Ziploc bag is closed and placed on your palm. A borrowed coin is signed and placed on top of the bag on top of your hand. The coin visibly penetrates the still sealed bag! Is it really inside? Really! And you never touched it! Really!

You offer to repeat the effect, but this time you perform it with a little more flair: the coin is positively identified and simply by tossing it towards the bag, it visibly penetrates it again! Is it really inside? Really!
Only one coin is used.
Only one Ziploc bag is used.
The coin is signed!
The coin is really inside the Ziploc Bag at the end of both performances!
No difficult sleight of hand necessary!
Almost completely self-working!
A guaranteed head-scratcher!

Hover Card by Dan HarlanHover Card


What if you could harness the power of gravity?

What if you could ignore it? This is Hover Card.

You stand on the street. All eyes are on the deck. Silence and raw anticipation pour through the air. With all attention focused on the deck, one card begins to visibly RISE. The motion is slow; the force is under your complete command at all times.

There are no strings. There are no wires. There is nothing but you, your audience, and a crisp deck. With only that, you have the power to perform.

Paint Surprise Devin Knight’s Paint Surprise!

Definitely a new effect. Devin Knight raises the bar again when a borrowed ring transposes with the ball bearing inside of a can of spray paint. The easiest way to get the ring out is to spray it out through the nozzle on an index card. The card is folded into quarters and visually inflates – the ink changes to the ring!

Pour water into your clean hands, blow = ice? Enter your new X-Men-like ability. Sounds like the real deal, you can actually use the ice in your drink. What’s more, it can be performed in a walkaround environment, it’s repeatable, and “extremely impromptu.”

SMOKE RINGS- By Dave Forrest

Posted by Editor on December 14th, 2006

Singled out by the legendary Paul Harris for inclusion on his ‘True Astonishment’ DVD set, SMOKE RINGS is a truly incredible impromptu miracle!

“If I only had one playing card with which to do magic, this is the routine that I’d do, bar none.” – David Forrest (from the introduction of this manuscript)

SMOKE RINGS is a completely impromptu, 100% examinable linking card effect which requires no preparation whatsoever. Only one card is used, nothing else. No additional gimmcks are required, your hands are clearly empty. This is anywhere, anytime magic with nothing more than a single playing card.

Effect: Any card is borrowed or freely chosen by a spectator and signed. With both hands unmistakably empty, two impromptu rings are torn from the card. Without any overt actions or suspicious cover, the two rings are magically linked together, one ring hanging from the other. Such is their linked condition that one ring must actually be torn in order to free the other – one ring is unmistakably displayed as being torn.To finish, the torn ring is completely restored and everything is handed out for examination. There is nothing to find. The rings may be kept by the spectator as a souvenir. Believe it!

After many years of secrecy, SMOKE RINGS can now be yours!
