It is an excellent stand alone effect but also a great follow up to any Torn and Restored tricks..
26 minute tutorial video with Nicholas Lawrence & Worm
Here’s what happens… Grab a playing card and with your finger start to push on it.. Push and twist until your finger bursts through the center of the card!
After this small feat of destruction, Cleanly display the ripped and frayed card impaled on your finger..
Show the card 360 degrees with absolutely Nothing to hide!
It’s actually pierced..
Remove your finger from card and display the destruction again briefly, then with a quick twirl of the card it instantly restores itself!
Leaving No trace of the hole on either side of the card!
Show the card front and back with nothing extra in your hands!
BONUS: Have a card chosen, lost in the deck.. then Spring the cards into the air and impale your finger through one card… remove the card form your finger and reveal it’s their selection!! Then if the magic couldn’t get any better.. you visually restore the card at your finger tips!
(This mechanical gimmick looks like a normal playing card from your audience perspective and only you know the secret.. Easily switch for an examinable duplicate card and end clean )
