Like the larger Card silk sets that we sell (see related items!), this is a set of two silks, one picturing a blank faced card, and one picturing a normal card -- in this case, the KING OF CLUBS. The silks are about 8 inches square, and so they will easily fit in a thumbtip or small die tube (like you get with Tenyo's Chameleon silks, for example).
The effect is that you show a blank card silk, and poke it into your hand where it magically prints a face on the card, to match a selected card. (If it doesn't match the selected card, it is still magical, but nowhere near as impressive!) Because audiences may not really know what a blank card is, I find it good to add one to the routine. With a an extra card sleight or two, you can put the selected card on the table, then show the blank card silk, explaining that it is a picture of a selected card...BEFORE IT WAS PRINTED! To stop the bottle throwing and boo-ing, stuff the silk in your hand, show the printed silk, and (due to your simple switch of the card earlier), now show the card on the table is blank!
Showing a real blank card at the end gives the routine much more meaning for laymen, for some reason.
Does not come with the thumbtip or dye tube -- but you probably have one or both of these already. It does come with complete instructions. Brand new.
