Easy Oil And Water Card Trick
An easy version of this visually amazing card trick
The oil and water card trick is an amazing routine and is great to watch. However, to perfect the classic version of the trick, takes a lot of practice. This version shows an easier way to show a similar effect although some sleight of hand is still required.
Effect : Three red cards and three black cards are shown to your audience. The cards are then placed red, black, red, black, on top of each other.
The magician then squares the cards up.
On turning the cards face up, they have amazingly separated back into two piles of reds and blacks !!!
The amazing effect can be repeated two more times to leave your audience even more baffled ??
This looks stunning and beyond explanation as the cards were right in front of them all the time. This stunt goes to prove that an easy trick, performed well can be very effective at impressing your audience.
Watch the very talented Youtube magician Mismag822 perform this clever routine in the video below. Then watch the tutorial video further down the page to explain how this fascinating routine was made possible.
The next video explains how this seemingly impossible magic trick was performed.
This great sleight requires only a deck of cards and a small amount of double sided sticky tape. A little sleight of hand is required but the time invested should be worth it to accomplish such a dazzling effect
The sleight can also be incorporated into many other illusions.
