As you see in the demo, this is a cute, commercial effect. What you don't see in the demo, but might
be important for experienced napkin rose makers, is that the rose needs to be set-up before you
present it to your spectator(s). Since one of the charms of the napkin rose is making it in front of
your audience, potential buyers should realize that the routine does not accommodate this aspect.
Personally, I will want to come up with a way of ringing in the gimmick after the rose has been made
in full view, and I was a bit disappointed to find that this was not discussed.

Although the basis of this effect is largely a classic (and virtually every magician and
non-magician knows how to do it), Chris Randall updates the effect by adding some truly magical
elements. Some of the tweeks on the making of the rose were needed and helpful. The "magical
moments" added make this more than simply a bar stunt.
If you like the paper rose, you will
get use out of this. I will be adding it to my repertoire.

ok once i saw the trailer for this effect i was sold. i've done floating rose by kevin james so i
knew this effect was very similar. i saw him do the effect to some girl. wow i dont think i could
have done the floating rose by kevin james to a girl on the street. it would take some preparation.
this takes barely any preparation other than making the napkin rose.
very easy and simple
trick. it looks beautiful. i haven't done floating rose by kevin james since a few years now so i
really need to practice this trick but i should be able to present it out to girls this weekend. :)
this is an awesome trick. ADD TO CART.

For close-up, strolling magicians, Desert Rose is a really great effect that's easy to do. The
effect looks just like on the demo video when using flash paper.
I actually bought this
video for the bonus effect 7 Digits and was disappointed by that effect because at the conclusion of
the effect you do not know or reveal the spectator's phone number. Once the effect is over, the
spectator can give you her number if she wants, but the effect ends without you having it, knowing
it or revealing it.

first of all dont get this trick because of the bonus effect 7 digits.all you do is get your phone
number to appear on a piece of napkin using a move that im pretty sure were all familiar with.but
you dont end up knowing the spectators phone number or anything a mazing for that manner.Second i
was expecting something more creative for the method,you could probably do this trick just by
watching the trailer and your first guess will probably be the method.Im only 12 and i only have a
small amount of money to spend,its not like if theres a bad trick i get i can just throw it out and
get a new one,its very rare for me to get something like this.So now i have to wait another whole
month or so to actually get something good.
This trick is good for like ULTIMATE
beginners.i would recommend vanishing a coin besides this useless stuff.

I purchased the download for the rose effect and was not disappointed. This can be used on many
occasions and with a minimal of preparation. Excellent explanation for making the rose; what to
use, how to use it, and handling tips to enhance the finished product. Chris gives several options
for doing the effect, that are all practical and effective, including using flash paper. Of course
flash paper is the most dramatic; I have never used flash paper and appreciated his advice on the
safety issues of using fire and the bits to make it most effective and safe at the same time.

This download comes with the Desert Rose trick and a bonus trick called 7 Digits. The Desert Rose
trick is great, it's easy to do, the spectator gets a great takeaway gift, and it's super easy to
setup and do. The instructions are clear and thorough too, which is always good.
bonus trick, 7 Digits, is decent at best. It's a pretty cool little trick that you can do if you're
looking to get a number, but fair warning, it's pretty cheesy near the end. It's a bonus trick
though, and as such came with it, so i'm not complaining too much, but I don't know if I can bring
myself to do that particular one personally.
Other than that, if you want a good bar
hopping set of tricks, cheesy or otherwise, get this and you won't regret it!
I knew what I was getting. The phone number effect alone is worth getting, it's not anything
revolutionary but if you want a shameless way to get a woman's number or man, this will help.
