Nothing is guaranteed to strike fear into the trainee magician’s heart more than the words ‘and then complete a perfect faro shuffle’.
The Faro Shuffle is an elegant technique that mixes two packets, with cards alternating from each hand. A perfect faro means a precise rearrangement of a deck into two equal piles of 26 cards, which are then interwoven perfectly. For many apprentice card manipulators it is a sleight too far. A move too onerous to master, but too desirable to forget.
Well, James Went (star of the bafta award winning BBC magic show ‘Help, My Supply Teacher Is Magic’) is here to put this incredible move into your arsenal. IT. IS. NOT. AS. HARD. AS. YOU. THINK!
Using a simple, step-by-step guide James will show you his bulletproof technique and get you up and running in a flash.
The thorough one hour video download will walk you through every element that you need to master this powerful sleight. It breaks down the hand positions, subtle movements and the necessary choreography into simple steps, that – if you follow – will ensure your practice time is actually improving your skills!
And James even includes THREE killer routines that will take your newly mastered skill and blast spectator’s minds. Stacked Aces requires only a partial faro, so is perfect for performances when you are just starting to make headway with this essential sleight. Then Ace Goes To The Place (by Harry Riser) will show you just how incredible a routine you can unleash just by using a single faro shuffle. And finally, Mental Topper (by Ed Marlo) is a truly crushing routine that will fry absolutely ANYONE who sees it. James uses this to destroy magicians! Once you see it, you’ll see why!!!
