    How to use sleight of hand in cards, for practical use.

    I feel like as magicians (specifically those like myself who specialize in card tricks) it becomes rather tiresome at one point and its easy to burn out. I want to see if you guys have any idea on how we can apply our sleight of hand/cardistry in a practical way. What I mean by this, is that...

    My cards are too cold!

    I live in Winnipeg, and the weather regularly gets down to -40°(the same in farenheit or Celsius). I've noticed that whenever I take them outside they develop a click. Even if they're just outside for a few minutes and in my jacket pocket. Is there anything I can do to avoid this?

    New Color Change?

    Hi everyone, I came to the Theory11 forums to find out if the color change I independently came up with has been created before. I want to make sure I actually created it before taking credit for the sleight. I have an entire process of getting the card to the point that you see in the video...

    Slippery Cards

    So I'm a beginner to Cardistry, and I've been using two types of cards, the Tally-ho Circle back and the Standard Bikes. I've used the Tally's for about 2-3 weeks now, and the Bikes for only a day. I find that the Bikes slide a lot more that the Tallys, and its easier to do cuts like the...

    Most reliable way of doubling cards and to keep cards doubled without holding opposite sides

    So, I have dry hands and I live in a dry environment. As such, my cards slide very well against each other. However, this makes it difficult to keep doubled as well. I've tried the following: I've seen magicians simply pinch one side hard enough for the friction to keep it together, but it...

    What deck do you primarily use?

    For me, over the past few years I've just used standard Bikes since I bought a brick of them at Costco and am just now running low. I know most gaffs and gimmicks are made using Bikes but I don't use gimmicks (other than the Invisible deck and an occasional double backer/facer) often enough for...
