MELT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 5th, 2013
This trick if followed and practiced several times can be totally mind blowing.
Sadly in my case and being a senior citizen aged 77 and with some athritic problems in my hands; this will take me a little longer to perfect.
But I will persevere; my best magic days are behind me, but for you youngsters, this is a Go get piece of magic I would reccommend MELT to anyone who loves the magic of Card manipulation.

Easy and cheap, but awesome effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2013
Well first of all, this works with pretty much any type of bill, doesn't have to be US. The secret is very simple, and you will be able to perform it in a couple of minutes.

Only things you need are items commonly found in your house (probably can't name them or else it would get edited, but you either have them or you can quickly get them). The gimmick takes about 30 seconds to make, and there is nothing that can really go wrong. What might be a problem for you, though, is that you need 3 exactly same cards, but that shouldn't be a big problem either.

Great Walk-Around Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2013
I'm always looking for visual magic that is angle-safe, resets, has audience participation ... and that doesn't load down my pockets.
"Melt" is perfect for walk-around.
You can do it for kids (most card tricks are too abstract).
You can do it at a noisy party.
You don't need a table.
It's different.
It's easy.
Plus bill effects increase tips.

Blow their minds with almost no effort Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2013
I love effects like this where you can concentrate completely on presentation and not worry about some knuckle-busting move. The handling here is so natural throughout the effect that you'll never even have to think about it after you've practiced a few minutes. The construction of the gimmick takes almost no time, is fairly sturdy, and is pretty much undetectable. The fact that you hand out both the card and dollar afterward for inspection only sells the effect that much more. Top it all off with the fact that the effect practically resets itself naturally, and you've got a winner.

AWESOME Trick and Great Teacher Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 29th, 2013
Hey Matthew... I just purchased MELT thru Penguin magic as a download and I just wanted to thank you for sharing such an awesome trick. AND... I also wanted to thank you for being such a great presenter and for crediting those that derserved crediting. I have been doing magic professionally for 20 years and have seen so many changes in our world of magic, most good but some horrible. I have gotten more involved in performing hypnosis shows in the past ten years and have stepped slightly away from close up magic to concentrate on comedy and stage magic , as well as hypnosis. I have recently been getting back into close up and I just wanted to say that you (and MELT) has reignited the flame that I have alsways had for magic. Thank You (And feel free to cut and paste this and use it for whatever promotional spin you can). Seriously, after 20 years, it can sometimes take a lot to inspire a magician, but you did!!!

Magically,

"MELT" A Winner Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 5th, 2013
I wouldn't expect anything less from talented and creative working magician Matthew Johnson!
Not only is this a practical, real-world effect, but there's much more: when you purchase this effect, you also get an effective, and easy-to-execute card-force which you WILL use! So you're getting not only a dynamite close-up illusion with simple props, but a BONUS and priceless utility move, worth far more than the overall price of the effect as well.
Matthew has obviously worked out all of the kinks in the numerous times he's performed this in his close-up/surrounded-work-venues: even the force is angle-proof, deceptive, and easy-to-learn!
In this audience-participation gem, a borrowed bill, and randomly-selected card are used to create an eye-popping illusion that will be the talk of the evening/event. Likewise, the gaff (which is simple to make) is subtly, cleverly, and innocently worked in and then out of the presentation.
The overall quality of the video is good, and Matthew is a great teacher, explaining step-by-step how to make the gaff, how to execute his force, and breaks down the routine in an easy-to-follow manner, including some tips and psychological subtleties. Of course, the effect is shown several times in real-life conditions, as Matthew performs it in the video with patrons at a restaurant/bar.
As a working pro with more than 30 years experience, I highly recommend Matthew Johnson's "Melt" for hobbyists and pros alike. A BARGAIN at half the price.

Great close up visual effect and easy to do. Matthew's
instruction is clear and thorough - even for a beginner like me! The gimmick was simple to make and I was performing Melt successfully within a few minutes of watching the explanation. Many thanks.

As a long time fan of Matthew Johnson, I'm pleased to say the he's got another winner in Melt. He's taken an old principal and created a perfect handling for it. This effect seems impromptu and he's developed the perfect clean up using another old, but reliable technique.

Well with the range of a beginner, but perfect for the working pro. Get this effect, you'll be glad you did.
