1 Dollar Card Through Window by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

A playing card missing a corner melts through a window glass pane.

Once the card has melted through the glass the spectator can touch the glass. This method is very quick and cheap to make, about $1, and thus the name of the trick. Works with any glass pane that is not too thick.

[Note: The $1 cost statement assumes you have common supplies available when it comes to gaffing cards, such as double sided tape, invisible thread, etc. If you do not have these available then it will cost you more, because you will likely have to purchase more than you actually need for this one gimmick. Also keep in mind that most will incur shipping costs to stock up on these supplies.]

Bionic Coin by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

This is an exceedingly clever and versatile way to gimmick a coin to create a stunning and visual effect. It works with many coins including US quarters, half dollars and dollars, some Euro coins, as well as many other coins from various countries.

Effect: You ask a spectator for a coin. The spectator or performer marks or draws something on the coin. You show your hands empty and you show the coin clearly from both sides. At this point there is no secret second coin involved. You simply move your finger across the face of the coin and the drawing instantly changes, either vanishes or transforms...

Card Corner in Phone by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Effect: The performer shows a video that displays various card values. A spectator mentally selects one, then mentally tears off a corner of the selected card, and that card corner appears in the phone.

To perform this effect all you need is a phone that can play back an MP4 video. This is not an app and can therefore be performed on pretty much any modern smart phone. Please note that in most cases the card corner will appear in the video that is played back. In some cases the card corner will materialize as actual card corner.

Card on Cap by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Ralf explains how you have to gimmick the cap, and he will demonstrate several ideas and handlings of how you can perform this routine.

Here is a straight forward effect which is enabled by a clever gimmick. You ask somebody to think of any one of the five ESP symbols.

You will be able to show that you wrote down the same symbol.

  • No force. Any one of the five ESP symbols can be selected.
  • You are not limited to the ESP symbols. Any other small number of symbols, numbers, etc. can be used.

Floating Match by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Ralf Rudolph takes on the challenge to let a lighted match float. He explains in detail how to make the gimmick, and how to perform the effect. You need to perform this under somewhat dimmed lighting conditions with some distance to your audience. It is best performed off-beat when nobody expects you to perform a magic trick. For example, it has become dark and you want to light a candle. Take a box of matches, light a match, and suddenly the match floats for 2-3 seconds. Then you light the candle with it.

One of these rectangular tear-outs has its center removed to create a little frame, which is freely shown. Magician folds this little frame over the center beam of the larger card frame and suddenly the little frame clearly hangs from the center beam of the larger frame. How did it get on there?

Ghost Corner by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

A corner of a playing card is torn off. The magician pretends to grab the card at the missing corner. Despite the fact that he is not touching the card he can still lift and turn the card while holding on to this missing corner.

The effect goes back to Lubor Fiedler. However, Lubor's method is completely different and had the disadvantage that you couldn't show the back of the card. With Ralf's solution you can show both front and back while you are holding the card at the missing corner.

You give the dollar bill as souvenir to the spectator who can keep this impossible bill for the rest of his life in his wallet.
