This is an excellent wild card trick where a spectator is seen to randomly pick a playing card from the deck. The magician then holds the card out in front of the spectator and it is seen to bend and curl back and forward at will. This easy card trick is visually stunning and is a good ice breaker.
Effect: A playing card is randomly chosen from the pack. The card is then seen to bend back and forward wildly as if by magic
How To Do The Trick : A few simple items are all that is required to perform this easy magic trick. The magic instruction video shown here will show you the magic illusion being performed and then reveals the secret to this clever wild conjuring stunt.
Tips : This wild card bend trick works best when the spectator think that they have randomly chosen the card. Practice an easy force such as the riffle force so that you can achieve the most convincing effect out of this crazy card trick.
Practice your angles when performing so that the back of the card is not visible to the spectator when it is bending.
This is a cool example of using a gimmicked card to help you accomplish a great magician card trick with the minimum of practice. Gimmicked cards and coins are a useful way of expanding your range of illusions but should not be overused as there is no substitute for pure skill card magician tricks.
The advantage that the gimmicks have is that they usually make the sleights much easier to do and take a lot less practice and time to perform smoothly.
