Faro Shuffle by Michael Close Effect Learn the Faro Shuffle Updated Version in PDF format. From Michael Close The ability to do perfect faro shuffles is a powerful weapon in the card magicians arsenal of sleights. It is a genuine shuffle the cards are truly being mixed. But it is also a controlled shuffle meaning that the resulting order of the cards is not random. For this reason it is an excellent adjunct to memorized deck work. Over the years I have developed a very effective method for teaching the faro shuffle. I used this method for personal instruction but I also discovered that the method of teaching is so clear that my presence wasnt necessary. In other words I could teach the method long distance. In 2001 I released my first CD-ROM Michael Close on the Faro Shuffle which detailed this method. Feedback from purchasers was excellent. The Faro CD-ROM has been revised so it more closely resembles my other ebooks Closely Guarded Secrets and The Complete Workers Series.

Really Warped by Michael Maxwell The Ultimate Card Warp Easy To Do Special Cards Included Card Warp is one of the all-time classics of card magic. In essence a card turns inside-out – half face half back. Normally the card is torn in half and left for the spectators to examine and possibly reconstruct how its done. Michael Maxwells Really Warped takes the effect into another dimension Heres what happens A card is selected and signed by both you and a spectator one signature on the face and one on the back. A borrowed dollar bill is then folded in half and the signed card is slid inside. Now with no funny moves at all you push the card through the bill and it turns inside-out – the face visibly changes into the back – and the signatures are in view the entire time The change is repeated as many times as you wish you can even push the card only half-way through showing a face and a back at the same time Its a stunning effect and best of all its easy to do. Now for the coup de grace the card is given out as a souvenir – still half face and half back and still with both signatures. Its the ultimate give-a-way Included are handlings by Michael Maxwell and Darwin Ortiz as well as 10 warped cards to give away. You can also perform it with no signatures and use the same gaff over and over. Dont you think its time to get…REALLY WARPED ..

(Intercessor – someone who acts as an intermediate agent in a transaction or helps resolve differences) For more years than magicians can remember one of the most powerful principles used in card magic has been the torn corner principle. A card is selected one corner is torn off and kept by the spectator then the rest of the card is destroyed. The card is later found in any type of impossible location inside a cigarette or lemon for example. (Robert-Houdin used to have the card appear locked inside of a small safe buried under a tree.) Of course not only is the card found restored but the torn off corner matches exactly proving it was the selected card. All of these mind boggling miracles work on the same principle that of the corner switch. The torn corner of the forced selected card being switched for a corner of the duplicate card already set-up in the final location. From now on thanks the Gaetans incredible Intercessor gimmick you will be able to achieve all of these effects without switching the corner at any time More than that once the card has been selected the spectator may sign a corner of the card which is then ripped off and handed to the spectator. The spectator may immediately verify that his torn corner matches the card which only then will be destroyed and found restored in an impossible location. Gaetons gimmick eliminates the need for any false moves and allows you to immediately repeat the effect if desired Includes the Intercessor gimmick and 24-page fully illustrated booklet with routines and ideas from Gaetan Juan Tamariz and Michael Weber….
