Torn and Restored Cigarette Paper

Michael Skinner

Torn and Restored Cigarette Paper by Michael SkinnerThe Torn and Restored Cigarette Paper is a classic sleight-of-hand close-up effect. Skinner's main contribution here is the performance which is humorous and fits his personality. The technique is Nate Leipzig's technique which can also be found in Stars of Magic or Dai Vernon's Tribute to Nate Leipzig.

Cut & Restored Rope

Ten Peeks

Michael Skinner

Ten Peeks by Michael SkinnerThe ace through 10 of Diamonds are inserted into the pack, each card at a different location. The deck is shuffled and then Michael produces each card one by one in different ways using pop out moves, cuts, and other flourishes.

This is an improvement of an effect popularized by Eddie Fechter. However Eddie produced each card the same way using the gymnastic ace production from the Paul LePaul book.
