Magic Tricks Revealed: The Mind Boggling Magic Eraser
by George Hutton
This is a great card trick that is good for a quick stunning effect. It requires some practice and home, and some decent patter, but when done correctly it will generate the desired response. This trick works well with done as one trick of many that you are performing. It can work pretty well by itself, but after you do it once, it's pretty much spent.
This is how the trick will seem to your audience. You produce a pencil, with no 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. After you produce a regular set of cards, you calmly tell the audience you are going to erase everything on them. 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 fan the cards out, you carefully make sure that only the white edges are exposed. 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. Naturally, you can't stand there for twenty minutes holding the cards out, nor should you hold your hand perfectly still for more than a second. 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 must practice this trick enough times at home so you can quickly and effectively fan the cards out, without looking, so that they really do only show white. 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.
