I've got this problem with my dry skin making it difficult to do sleights. My hands are too slippery on the cards. If I get them a little wet it helps, but water or regular moisturizing cream doesn't last through a routine. Are there any products out there that will help?

When I perform, I'm naturally a little nervous for the first few minutes, so the perspiration on my hands makes the handling perfect ^_^

Near the end of my show, I'm so into the swing of things, the sleights just happen naturally.

Check any office supply store for a product called SortKwik. I use this stuff all the time.

Also at office supply stores is a gel that bank tellers use to help count money called 'Paper Creme' made by the 3M company.

Or if you're looking for home made remedies, you can try equal portions of 'Glycerin and Rose Water' and 'Rubbing Alcohol' (get this at you're local drug store). Apply at least ten minutes before you're performance.

Hope this helps...

:lol: Yeah dry handz can be a problem and dude I have the solution to your problem. Twin Labs makes a spray called "Na PCA". This spray is the same chemical compound that your skin produces to moisturize itself. Its greaseless and contains aloe and I use it all the time. IT's cheaper than that stuff the "Ellusionist " sells and I'll bet that it's the same. You can find it at most health food or GNC stores. Just spray it on and rub the problem of dry handz away![/i]

Haha, I had this problem for a while when I first started performing. My nervousness acted as the perfect grip for cards and anything else. But as performances grew, the more relaxed and natural I felt; hence the nervousness left, leaving me with slippery cards and hands.

Here's what I did before a performance. It may sound very strange, but it worked for me. I would pull out the pockets of my pants and just spritz a little water onto them. Not so much they were soaked, but enough that the fabric would be damp for a long while. When I ditched/loaded something from my pocket, all I had to do was give a little movement with my palm over the damp spot and boom; instant grip. :D

I know, I'm weird, but that's just the on the spot solution I came up with when I worked professionally.
