Coin magic and dry hands

Dec 12, 2018
Hello everyone!

I've slowly developed a problem over the years with very dry hands, this has effect card magic but I've work arounds and hand cream helps but with coin magic it seems impossible now.

Cream doesn't work as my hands become too slippery without hands are too dry.

I know David Roth spoke about this and about applying something to the coins to make them grippy.

Any help would be amazing.

Thanking you all!

I’ve used “Octopalm” with decent success, on my hands though not directly applied to coins. I’m sure you could apply it to coins though, it’s rosin. I’ve heard some folks recommend violin rosin as an alternative but I doubt it’s any cheaper than octopalm.
