This is a must have to keep in your wallet for an impromptu effect. I came up with a totally killer idea. It works to well with the methodology of this effect, I had to share. If you purchase Torn 2 Pieces you will understand the method. He teaches you how to create your own needed prop, so try this: Create a prop using his methods and your business card. Now, you can give away your business card in a torn and restored way that will blow people away!6 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
A must have!
So much fun to perform Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 18th, 2011
I can't believe there haven't been any other reviews on this effect. I bought this from Penguin a couple of months ago, and have performed it for many people. Almost all of them have been totally baffled as to how I have restored the photo. A really nice trick, and Shawn Farquhar teaches every subtlety and technique perfectly! As soon as I saw him perform it on the "Ellen DeGeneres" show, I just had to find out how it was done. It is now my favourite trick to do, when someone asks to "see a trick". Buy it, you won't be disappointed!6 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
The Real Deal Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 27th, 2015
I have looked at this for a couple of years contemplating if I should get it or not. The idea of having to have a program to make the gimmicks wasn't my idea of something I would like. I was wrong. This is an absolute killer effect! There are ways around having to purchase a costly Adobe program, and even a free version that Shawn explains in the video. Even still, Shawn provides a selection of a couple ladies and a couple of men, that is suitable for either a male or female magician to get the effect going right away. They are ready to be copied. Just run down to your nearest Fed Ex with the photos loaded on a flash drive, take your own 8 x 10 photo paper, and have two prints of what Shawn provides put on each paper, and it will only cost you about 60 cents per copy. That is enough to do the effect 4 times each sheet. Probably less expensive than what you can do it for on your own printer because of the price of ink. I had a couple of questions and I wrote to Shawn and he responded with some great advice and was very helpful. Lets face it...a lot of us base a very high percentage of our magic on card tricks or card manipulation. This is a very refreshing addition to spice up any routine. Use it as a closer and your name will be mentioned for a long time. This effect is The Real Deal. I missed out not putting it into my repertoire a couple of years ago, but I will do it forever now. If you only buy one piece of magic to add to your act this year, this should be it. Thanks for sharing it Shawn!3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.

Great Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 10th, 2012
This trick is fabulous because it's so easy to both carry around with you and do not to mention that it gets terrific reactions and last but not least ...you can customize it. Shawn shows you how to create your own T2P photos step by step, it's as if he's hanging out with you right at your house and he's helping you learn the effect in the most personal manner explaining every little detail and nuance. This trick gets the reactions it does because once you customize it for your intended spectator, it becomes something very personal.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.

Completely Ingenious Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 12th, 2016
This trick is absolutely incredible. You tear a photograph up and restore it- but wrong! It's such a surreal image at the end that they get to keep.
My favorite part is the extremely thorough and well paced teaching from Shawn Farquhar. He goes over every little detail in making this effect work.
I also love that you can do this trick with literally any photograph! The fact that the photograph is signed and examinable at the end makes this an absolutely fooling giveaway.
It's so surreal, and it gives them a handout that will keep them scratching theirs heads for years to come.
Wonderful, impactful and easy-to-perfrom. Report this review
