Cards From Thin Air!

by John

THE EFFECT: You get amazing audience reactions because even though it's clear your hand is empty, you appear to grab card after card from behind their ears, under tables, even from thin air!

THE SECRET: You will need a pack of cards and plenty of practice, practice, practice! A small stack of cards should be held in the palm of your hand in "palm position".

Choose an amount of cards that you feel comfortable holding. It is not necessary to hold a lot of cards (work out how many you plan to produce and count them out before the trick).

With the back of your hand facing the audience grip the edge of the pack with your fingers and use your thumb to peel of the top card. Continue using your thumb to move the card up to the audiences view, held beween the thumb and fore finger.

At the same time as you are pivoting the card up, the hand should be lunged forward slightly as if the card has been grabbed from thin air. Continue to produce cards from the air in this manner, throwing down each card to the audience before producing the next card as if by magic.

Practice this trick in front of a mirror to see it from an audience view point and get to know the best angle for the trick to be performed.
