I'm having trouble cleanly separating the two packs. Any tips?

I'm working on that one right now and here are a few things that have helped me. I'm assuming you are separating using a Charlier style split.

1. Let gravity help you. Be sure the deck is completely vertical before separating packets.
2. Secure the edge of each packet in the crotch of the first joint in the finger. This helps me control each packet separatly. So the top card of the top packet is resting in the crotch of the first joint of the index finger. The top card of the second packet is resting in the crotch of the first joint of the middle finger.
3. To get these two tips to work together do a sort of get ready first. Ie. Get you deck virtical and get each packet set where it needs to be. Then in one quick motion separate the two packets.

If you do this thing relatively quickly you should be able to break the top packet free without accidentally dragging cards from the bottom packet.
Hope that helped.
