Oil Over Troubled Water (DVD + Gimmick) (Christian Engblom)
"This trick is as close to perfection as you can get and it will fool literally everybody." -Roberto Giobbi
"I keep watching it over and over and have absolutely no idea how Christian does it. Brilliant." -Bill Kalush
This is a show-stopping performance piece suitable for both extreme close-up and TV appearances. The visual quality of this trick and the dramatic build make it ideal for "special" performances or as a set close-up piece.
You show an intriguing deck of cards: some have red backs and some have blue backs. You clearly show the whole deck missed in this fashion. This you remove three red backed cards and three blue backed cards and proceed to preform a two phase oil and water routine with an additional climax. These phases look amazing and culminate by separating the colors in the spectator's hands! You then reveal that you have separated the entire deck by color.
THIS JUST MIGHT BE THE MOST BIBLICAL OIL AND WATER EVER CONCEIVED.
Why? Here are three reasons!
1. It's a full routine with inherent resetting properties, making it practical for street magic, or as a theater piece. It not only gives you great phases with a small packet, but also a full-deck ending.
2. You are supplied with everything you need; the special deck and instructional DVD.
3. It's within the range of every per-former and easy to learn!
