A blue backed deck is removed from its case. The deck is spread and your spectators are asked to call out the names of some cards that they see. You then take the named cards and, one by one, begin to magically change their back colour from blue to red! Offering a better look at the technique you announce that you will change the back of another card...
...IN SLOW MOTION!
With a gentle wave of your hand, the card begins to visibly change. The card actually appears to change as you move your hand back and forth over it! You pause halfway - the card under your hand is half blue and half red! Slowly, you complete the colour change, visually changing the remaininder of the blue card to red. The card is now fairly shown on both sides - it has completely changed to red!. But, you're not done...
With a snap of your fingers the entire deck instantly changes to red before their already disbelieving eyes. They pick their jaws up - you move onto your next miracle!
There is a small "oddness" that occurs when you go to pay for this, where it appears cheaper, then you have to pay for postage. This is because you have to pay postage for some reason, so Full52 have discounted it, and added postage- Hope that makes sense.)
(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)
I'd say 3. THere's a couple of slieghts but nothing too troublesome. Probably closer to a 2.5
I downloaded this and was very happy.
Technically, the download was easy with straight forward instructions.
The customer service was great aswell.
As with all Dave's releases it's entertaining and fun, but also clear and concise. After 10 mins prep you've got everything you need, and stood infront of a mirror saying "Wow, I really am wiping colour on and off"
There are 2 routines, and although Colour Burn is the main effect, even Dave admits that you'll find it easier to slot the bonus into the middle of a routine as an extra effect - Colour Burn is more of an opener. Both routines have clean ups, and allow you to carry on into your other card effects.
Yes there is a gimmick to carry round, but nothing you would worry about carrying round, and among magicians, you could get away with doing it with a borrowed deck.
It's hard to think of anything else to say, what they say is what you see, the demo on the site is very honest, that's real life that is. http://www.full52.com/
