Magic Tricks Revealed - The Stunning Magic Eraser

Here's a great trick that if done correctly, will quickly dazzle your audience. It requires a deck of cards, some at home practice, and a good dose of patter. When you combine all these ingredients, you are sure to have a trick that your audience will never forget. This trick is best done in a string of other similar card tricks or other illusions.

This is how the trick will seem to your audience. You pull out a pencil that doesn't have an eraser. You can use a pencil that really doesn't have a built in eraser, like a golf pencil, or you can get a regular pencil and remove the metal part at the end that holds the eraser, or you can simple break the eraser off. This tends to have a more comical effect, and increases the effectiveness of this trick.

You explain that this pencil has a magic eraser. And this magic eraser can erase anything. You may tell a story how you accidentally erased the numbers on your wife's credit cards or something. Then you pull out a normal deck of cards, and explain that you are going to erase all the faces from the cards. Nobody, of course, will believe you, so you must show them that the deck is a normal deck of cards, and fan them out to show them.

Then you wave your magic eraser over the deck a few times. Then when you fan the cards out, they will see that all the faces on the cards are indeed pure white, and nothing else can be seen. Then you close the cards back up, stick them in the box, and explain you don't know why you do this trick, as every time you do so it ruins a perfectly good deck of cards. Then you grab a new deck, or the props for your next trick and continue.

This illusion is really fairly basic. When you open up the cards, you have to be sure so that they only see the white edges. With all fifty two cards like this, the deck will appear to be fanned out quite a lot, and will give the impression that all the cards are indeed white. Of course, you can't linger too long with the deck fanned out, and shouldn't hold your hand very still. Simply wave the cards around for a second or two at most, and then continue as described above.

This is a trick where technique and patter must work well together. You'll need to practice enough times on your own so that you can easily do it without looking, so they really appear to have been erased. You'll need to do this without looking at them when you the trick, and don't pause in the middle of your story while you're doing so. That will give the audience a lot to concentrate on, and they won't have time to wonder how you did the trick. It's good to have a trick lined up to follow this one with right away. Have fun.
