Ask a spectator to hold out their hand and make a closed fist. Pull out a marker and draw an 'X' on the center of your palm and close it into a fist. Now without any rubbing, erasing or funny business, you slowly open your hand and reveal your X is COMPLETELY GONE. Now ask the spectator to open their hand - THE X IS ON THEIR PALM!
Ask them to try to rub away the X - they can't! It's Sharpie ink! Tell them not to worry though - it's safe and nontoxic and can be washed away easily with soap and water.
The secret behind Double Cross is diabolically clever, and perhaps more importantly, practical. Its always inked and ready to go. There is nothing you need to make or prepare beforehand - just throw the pen in your pocket and you can perform it all night long.
Because there's no difficult sleights, you'll sail through the routine. You're so far ahead the spectators will never remember you coming near them or even touching them. The result is a unique magic effect that's self-contained, has NO reset, and can be performed surrounded. Its a table hopper's dream.
Double Cross includes the MagicSmith designed and fabricated Double Cross Sharpie pen, accessories and complete instructions.
Double cross is the best I feel or at least for me personally in my gig situations. It's been serving me well as my go to climax in my close up work. I'm a big fan of it especially as it's been so practical for me. It gets me remembered with limited effort. I'd say that the hard parts with double cross aren't the techniques per say but having the confidence levels to pull them off which can come with enough performance attempts. It's worth every penny for me and more and has come to feel as the best one off magic investment that's ever been made by me for any of my close up work.
Double cross is really easy to do, but you do need to be a bit careful of any flashing that could happen. With enough practice you can totally hide what needs to be hidden. I’ve had loads of fun with this and always get great reactions. Video instructions are second to none. Brilliant. I highly recommend this.
Great service as always, ordered after Christmas and received in time for a New Year's Eve gig, using it straight out of the box and generated fantastic reactions, used the effect as closing peice after a card transposition effect, very cool !
