Magic Nook Magic
by Jim Gerrish
This effect combines Art
and Magic; painting on glass and a card trick. You begin
with the Magic a spectator shuffles a deck of
red-back cards, cuts the cards, and deals the cards,
finally choosing one of the cards freely and setting it
aside face-down and unseen by anyone. While this is going
on you are quickly making a painting on a glass window;
the one shown above is just an example.
A snowman is easily
painted on glass and you cant make a mistake
a snowman is a snowman
whether in a drawing or out
on your lawn in the wintertime. The Magic in your Art
comes when a blue-back card appears on your glass window
painting... face down. Is it possible? Could it be the
same card freely chosen moments ago from a red-backed
deck by the spectator? Of course it is, because that's
the Art of Magic!
Also includes a version
for those who aren't ready to paint in public - both
picture and the card appears just like magic.
