Deck Colour Change
(West Bengal, India)
The magician takes a blue deck of cards and after giving them a good shuffle they change into a red deck!THE SECRET:
For this trick you only need one blue card, place this on top of a red deck. Place the red deck (with blue card on top) into a blue card case then you are set.
Begin the trick by removing the blue card case from your pocket. Remove the cards from the case keeping them perfectly square so you do not flash the red cards. Without saying anything your spectators will naturally assume all the cards are blue.
Give the cards an overhand shuffle making sure the front of the cards are facing the audience. Always finish the overhand shuffle by placing the blue card back on top of the deck.
Now here is the move that will convince your audience that all the cards are blue without you having to say so. Turn the deck face up perfectly square. Grip the deck from above at the sides and begin to strip cards off the top into your other hand.
Every few cards or so turn the bottom of the deck over and show the top blue card to your audience. Keep doing this until you get through most of the deck. The audience will think they are seeing different cards each time but in fact they are seeing the top card.
When you get to a point where there are only a few cards on top of the blue card place the small packet on the rest of the deck. Give the whole deck a magical riffle then turn the deck over.
Begin fanning through the cards to show they are now all red! Make sure you do not fan too deep into the deck or the one blue card will be flashed. TIP:
At the beginning of the trick never say all the cards are blue because that will arouse suspicion. Just let your audience see for themselves.TIP:
The blue card case is a great convincer because the audience will psychologically assume all the cards are blue!
