3 by Eric Ross (DVD + Gimmick) Three powerful tricks from a best-selling creator. Chapstick gimmick included!
Price: $25.00
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

... And then there were "3".

3 tricks, designed to astonish and stun even the most skeptic of spectators.

EACH one of the effects packs enough punch to make your reputation as an entertainer, even stronger.

Eric has fooled the most knowledgeable entertainers in the magic field with these effects, and now, he shares them with you.

Chapped - A ChapStick is presented. The spectator is asked to think of a card. The spectator reads the text aloud, "ChapStick". Then, with just a rub, the text rearranges itself into the spectators thought of card. The ChapStick is then handed out for Full examination.

Shades - A spectator selects a court-card from the deck. The spectator SIGNS their name across the face. You then take the card and, in plain sight, draw sunglasses on one of the faces. Then you VISUALLY move the sunglasses, across the court card, to the other side. You hand out the card for immediate examination. Your spectator gets to keep the card as a reminder of you.

Watermark - Previously released in Eric's Lecture notes, "Watermark" is one of the most talked about effects that involves a BORROWED dollar bill. A card is thought of. A bill is borrowed. As the Magician pointsto the face of the bill, he asks the spectator what card they were thinking of. At that moment, INSIDE the bill, appears a WATERMARK of the thought of card. Hand right out!

*ChapStick gimmick included

Nice effects Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2012
Three cool effects where he teaches how to make three different gimmicks. What I really like is that all three gimmicks are super easy to have with you. What I don't like is it is painful to watch each explanation. he explains them well, but it's like you are watching the DVD in painful slow motion. I guess it's good to learn (and it is), but I had to fast forward as he showed me again and again how to cut each entire one out with scissors (I went to Kindergarten, I know how to use scissors). There is a really cool bonus way of doing watermark that occurs to me that he didn't talk about: Have half a dozen gimmicks in your wallet as he shows how to keep them, and have the participant mentally select a card from the deck with a combination of magician force and free selection. Force a suit, odd numbers, and eliminate the court cards. Let them freely select 1,3,5,7,or 9 (only five cards). They just felt like they had a free choice amongst many more. Allow them to change their mind at the end. "You have 7 of hearts. Do you want to change your mind? 5 of heart? 9 of hearts?" I like to have them imagine a deck in new deck order as if it is on several "the price is right" wheels. This way, toward the end, they have just the wheel with the various force cards and they can spin the wheel back a few numbers or forward. Once you have the card, as you do the move he teaches, pick the gimmick that matches their selection. I love the idea of having some easy gimmicks to carry with me, I don't love the idea of always having to carry a deck of cards.
All in all, Highly recommended.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2012
This DVD has 3 effects on it that in my opinion are bad! The first effect Chapped is not very well thought out for one main reason, you could never carry the chapstick in jean pockets, it has to be carried in a lose pair of sweats or a lose coat pocket, can't tell you why, but trust me. Also, it doesn't end very clean. Shades blew me away when I watched the promo because let's face it, ink moving tricks are great. My biggest complaint about this trick is the set up. Without giving away the method, it is noticable to the human eye and executing the final phase is not real smooth. When explained on the DVD it is noticable how awkward it can be to complete, and then it doesn't end clean, so you are left with the gimmick. The third effect watermark is probably the best effect on the DVD. Although it doesn't end clean and the initial set up is kind of a pain the effect is decent. The one major problem is the ending. The watermark is there when you have the bill, but when you hand it back it is gone and in my mind the spectator will say where did it go. Everything happens in your hands leaving the feel of real magic out.

3 Amazing effects! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 17th, 2012
Im not sure what DVD the other reviewer received but it surely couldnt have been this one. Thus far, I've only been performing Watermark and SHADES and they just kill .. I mean KILL! SHADES is pure eye candy. Chesk out my performance of it here--->
Watermark is another fantastic trick! I have spectators take out their camera and get a photo of the final product which works as nice misdirection as well. Just about to prepare/perform Chapped but if its anyhting like the other 2 trick (which Im sure it is) then I cant wait!

Icould care less about the lighting in the DVD (you see everything fine) and Eric covers every inch of each effect! To tell you the truth I wasnt expecting a whole lot and now I have 3 amazing workers that take up no space!

BUY it and you'll see what I mean! 1 effects is worth the price of the whole DVD. Trust me, if this were bad Id call it out .. but it's amazing! Ivealready been performing Election and Eric has allowed 3 more effects to go straight into my working routine.
Do yourself a favor and get this .. you wont be disappointed at all! This is eye candy and it's easy to do!!!

Not end clean in any of effects Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 11th, 2013
The promo video looks great. It is very misleading. Watch it and notice the camera cuts and attention away from the hand after each effect.
Chapstick effect you are left holding gimmick. No advice on video how to ditch it. The bill effect looks incredible, it is similar idea to Paul Harris nightshade. Again left very dirty. The last effect you cannot let spectator examine bill or else it is very obvious. To me, eveyone will want to look at the bill so you better come up with creative excuse. Enjoyed watching the video, can't say that I will or have performed any of the effect. I suppose if you put a lot of thought how to structure the routines to end up clean, it is worth it

I watched the dvd when i received it and i gotta admit, i thought the effects where awesome and they are cool, but the handlings are crappy, the effects you dont really end clean, the video production was horrible, Eric, i appreciate your brains , but cmon man, please give sone better methods here! Luckily i bought it in the cool box for 4.95 so it wasnt that much of a loss, my recommendation buy something else dont waste your time or money on this dvd,

3 cool tricks all of them are easy to do once you have made them up. The the chap stick is ok, but finding one in the UK just like the one used in the dvd is a problem, having said that one close to it is avalable and so far the difference was not noticed, so works fine?, but it would be much better if the correct chap stick was included in the box.
