A release from the Classic
in limited quantities, this routine is another re-release from Mark
Leveridge's back catalogue and is a really clean card matrix effect
which is perfect for a performance on a close up mat.
Four Aces are removed from a deck and placed out in the four corners of
the mat. Two Jumbo cards are shown back and front and are then lowered
over two of the Aces one at a time. In quick order, all four Aces collect
Discarding the Jumbos, the Aces are spread out again for a repeat just
using the hands as covers. Nothing appears to have happened until three
of the Aces are shown to have turned blank, and all the card pips are
seen to have arrived on the face of the card top left!
This incorporates a subtle handling that’s a real fooler. You receive a
special set of Bicycle cards (supply your own matching Bicycle deck),
the Jumbos, and DVD instructions with printed directions too.

Robert Smith and Paper Crane Magic proudly present Psypher
is the highly acclaimed product, Universal Impression, but bigger,
better and stronger. Imagine knowing what anyone is thinking at anytime.
ANY word, picture, card, or thought is written by a spectator and you
know what it is, without ever coming near them!
Here's what you get:
More options, a larger gimmick for you to work with. (Twice as much as
the original UI)
Custom made to work 20% better than the original.
A business card wallet
Most peek wallets cost twice the amount of this entire package alone.
You're getting one free... and guess what? This blows any peek wallet
out of the water! Why? Because you never touch the business card after
they write on it.
Psypher is extremely easy to use but throw in some basic card technique
and routining from B. Smith and your levels of deception and impact just
went up a few notches. Of course if you want to sit back and let the
gimmick do all the work go right ahead, that's what it's here for!
Here's just one of the routines taught on the DVD:
E-Z - This effect is one of the most pure mentalism effects conceivable
with a deck of cards. Your spectator is asked to think of ANY card in
the deck, write it down on a piece of paper, and put that piece of paper
in their pocket. All of which is done while your back is turned; you can
even be in another room! When you return, you remove the cards from the
box and place one face down card on the table. Ask the spectator to name
the card they are merely thinking of... the spectator turns the card
over and it is the thought of card!! Card magic doesn't get any more
Let's face it, this isn't just a DVD or just a Gimmick, this is an
entire MENTALISM KIT with endless possibilities!!!

PropDog Card on Ceiling
Card on Ceiling trick has been around since the early part of the
century and was originally performed with tacks but over the last few
decades, magicians have been using wax as an alternative.
PropDog came up with what we think is a great improvement to the wax and
that is to colour it to make it much more invisible depending on hour
you use it.
The PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax has been specially formulated in
conjunction with a dedicated wax manufacturing company to be of the
perfect consistency for the trick. It's not so sticky that it leaves a
sticky residue on your fingers, but sticks perfectly to ceilings and
walls and means you can use smaller amounts, giving you more
performances per tub. All colours have been professionally matched and
the colourant is wax based, so will not stain the ceiling. Of course the
chances of actually flashing the wax is very little and it's never been
a requirement before, but as this wax is cheaper than other versions,
then using it can only make your act better.
For those who like to hide their wax in plain sight, we have:
Sharpie Grey - For those who hide the wax on their Sharpie, a small
amount on the bottom of your Sharpie is almost imperceivable. Just steal
the wax off as you give the Sharpie to the spectator to sign their card.
Sharpie Black - For those who hide it on the lid of their Sharpie
or on their belt. Just steal it off the lid or your belt as you give out
For those who hide the wax out of sight, we have:
Bicycle Blue and Red - Professionally colour matched to Bicycle Card
Red Backs. Once loaded on the card, if you were to accidentally flash
the top of the cards whilst performing the trick, it is far more
unlikely that the spectator will notice the wax.
Natural - for those who are not really bothered and just like to
use the standard colour.
The wax comes in three tin sizes: 15g, 30g and 50g. As a guide, the
standard Michael Ammar tub contains around 35g.
A 50g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 300
A 30g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 180
A 15g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 90
Please note that these tins only contain Card on Ceiling wax and they do
not come with a routine or instructions on how to perform the effect.

Dude That's Cool Magic Presents - PK Blista by Mike
you like PK Ring magic... BUT don't like wearing a ring?
The 'Dude That's Cool Magic- PK Blista' is a PK utility device that allows you
to perform incredible effects seemingly empty handed. It's silent, virtually
invisible and tiny enough to take up no pocket space. If James Bond used a PK
gimmick, this would be the one!
With a magnetic strength comparable to a PK ring, the PK Blista has the added
advantage of being significantly quieter in use, opening up a whole new world of
Each PK Blista (2 x supplied)
• Contains a very powerful neodymium magnet with an incredible pull strength
(these little guys are seriously strong)
• Has 3mm of rubber coating dulling any unwanted loud 'Clunks' and 'Thuds'
• Has generic flesh colouring
• Has no sizing issues
• Is easy to ditch and apply
In addition join your host and creative thinker Liam Montier on the
accompanying 22 minute DVD as he discusses the gimmick in more detail.
Not only will he teach you methods for ringing the gimmick in and out and
handling it in a totally natural manner, he will explain the following awesome
(and easy to do effects):
Coin in Bottle - Borrowed coin penetrates through the base of a soda
Coin Thru Hand - A marked coin vanishes from the back of your hand,
only to reappear within your clenched fist along with some previously
discarded pocket change.
The Mental Bag - Five spectators each randomly select a coin from a
bag. You use your mentalist powers to predict who has taken which coin.
Time to get Blista-ed!

Clone Coin by Mark Lee
is a super clean 'Special' coin that can be shown clearly as a regular
coin. There are two effects included, but once you see the ingenuity of
the coin, there are many more possibilities. Effect one, is a simple
coins across in your hands effect. You start off by displaying two coins
openly, there is obviously nothing else in your hands. You place the two
coins, one at a time, and very cleanly, from your right hand to the
left. You now pick the two coins up with your right hand, and display
them. They are then thrown one at a time into your left hand (you can
even hear them clinking), and you grip them, making a fist with both
hands. You make a magical gesture, and although your hands never come
anywhere near each other, you can now show that you have one coin in
each hand! Effect two, is a coin matrix effect. Using four coins, which
are shown and counted, and two regular playing cards, borrowed if you
wish. The coins are spread out in to a square formation. Two of the
coins are now covered by the playing cards. When one is lifted, a coin
has gone, and when the other card is lifted there are now two coins
under it. This is repeated, until all the coins are now under one card!
You can now show you have only two cards and four coins! These are
available in the 10p coin version as standard, but you can order any
coin you require. - Standard 10p coin plus instructions - £25.00 + £2.95
UK postage or £4.95 overseas.

Gay Ljungberg: This is my best trick! I invented it in 1984 and has sold
many, many hundreds over the years, it is always a hit at magic
conventions. I have liking for doing "ungimmicked versions" of tricks,
that are normally performed using gimmicks. This one of those.
PROFESSORS NIGHTMARE IN COLOR
You show thre unequal ropes, one is red, one is blue and one is yellow,
counting them from hand to hand. With one simple tug, you make the ropes
Two spectators each choose a rope and you take the remaining one and you
all tie a knot in the rope making a circle, a ring of rope. You gather
the three rope rings in your and try to pull them a part, but they are
linked to each other! The ropes are real, the knots are real and
everything can be examined.
No magnets, no extra pieces of rope, NO GIMMICKS! Only knowledge is
used. You receive three ropes in different colours, an illustrated
instruction PLUS a dvd showing the effect and in detail, step by step,
teaching you how to setup and perform the effect.
Bonus effect: ORDER OF YOUR THOUGHT
The spectator may tie the ropes in any order he likes, formig a long
rope. You have a red handkerchief visible in your breast pocket. You
pull out the handkerchief and there are two more handkerchiefs, all
three in the same colours as the ropes, and tied to each other in the
same order as the ropes. For this bonus effect you can use your own
silks (not included).
You can perform one, two or all three effects in a sequence. Easy to
learn! (Gay Ljungberg)
Hi Ho Hats – Uncle Wiggy
a pickle! Here’s a young man, eager to set off to wizard school, but
he’s missing something. Can you guess what it is? That’s right! A hat.
His Mum offers to help him, as she’s got a trunk in the attic with all
sorts of hats, but things go from bad to worse, as you can see!
In desperation, our young hero asks to go to the Hat Shop. You display a
folder, which represents the Hat Shop, and the children can see a
picture in the open window.
The shopkeeper tells the young wizard that he only has one hat left, but
he thinks it will be perfect. The young wizard is not so sure! There are
no other hats in the shop, as you prove by peering through the window,
but the children help with a magic spell, and another hat appears in the
window. Better still, it’s a wizard’s hat! - but it’s far too big! More
magic happens and as you can see from the happy boy wizard, everything
comes out right!
Stunning artwork, dazzling colours and a brilliant, highly topical plot
all add up to make this one of the best new children’s tricks for a long
time. Highly visible (the cards are approx. 10” x 7”) yet the whole
things packs completely flat. One of the earliest copies of the trick
went to Ian Adair. Here’s what he said: “Thanks for sending me the
latest ‘Hi Ho Hats’ effect. It’s terrific!!! Great artwork,
beautifully constructed and a wonderful theme. I performed it today and
the kids loved it! It will be in the show forever!” And here’s
another letter from busy professional, David Tomkins (Cheeky Dog
Entertainments): “Many thanks for ‘Hi Ho Hats’. Was expecting
something excellent and got it. Very pleased and it’s straight in the

Exclusive. Welcome to a new world of visual coin magic that will leave
your audiences devastated and gasping for more! Imagine being able to
take a 10p coin, throw it to a spectator and when they catch it they
discover it has turned into a 2p. Imagine handing the spectator a 10p
and a 2p, they then give you the 2p and you visibly change it into a
10p! They open their hand to find they are holding the 2p! With
Revolution you can perform all these miracles and more!!
Impossible Card Magic
Card Magic is a perfect title for this DVD. Every effect on this tape
is impossible to figure out when you first see it - you will be fooled!
The skill level ranges from intermediate to advanced but the effort
involved in learning these routines will surely put you ahead of the
crowd. All the routines are show-stoppers and all the methods are new
and original. This is card magic that will fool and entertain. Includes
Raise Rise - One of Ray's signature pieces, an ambitious card sequence
where a signed selection is placed near the bottom of the deck, sticking
out for half its length. Visually, the card jumps up to the middle of
the deck, then near the top, then becomes the top card! The card magic
contained on this DVD is not easy but each effect is well worth the
practice. Highly Recommended!
