Perform a visual transformation of a card that leaves your audience with an impossible object. With just a touch of the finger, the index of a card transforms from the wrong card to the selected card and gets a crazy reaction. From the mind of one of the youngest people to ever fool Penn & Teller, this is Diamond Cutter by Amanda Nepo.
Here’s what happens:
The magician has a card selected and then lost in the deck. The magician snaps her fingers and then triumphantly reveals… the wrong card. It’s the five of diamonds, though the audience card chosen was actually the three of diamonds–so close! In an effort to fix the situation, the magician tears off the bottom two diamonds leaving three diamonds on the torn card, but the index, of course, remains a five. Then, in an impossible moment, the magician rubs the index of the card, and the five transforms into a three, leaving the torn card with the correct index and number of pips even though the complete face was shown as the five just a moment ago. Everything is examinable.
Diamond Cutter comes with 27 gimmicks that you can start using to perform right away. This effect is fantastic as a stand-alone piece or as a kicker to your favorite card routine. The method is super easy to do, and the strange configuration of the pips on the card at the end of the routine gives your audience not just a great souvenir but a wonderful conversation piece. You will love the creativity that goes into the pip change, and you’ll learn a new concept that you will want to add to your other card effects. Get killer reactions when you snatch an incredible transformation from the jaws of defeat with Diamond Cutter by Amanda Nepo.
