Pyro Perception 2.0 - The FIRE Blister by Brent Walske You're spectators will FREAK when you stick your fingers into a flame and they come out with BLISTERS revealing their selected card! Penguin Award for the best new street magic effect of the year!
Price: $27.00
Out of stock.

You walk up to a group of people with a deck of cards.

You're about to perform an effect that they'll think about for days and remember forever.

You ask one of your spectators to remove a card from the deck and conceal it.

A lighter is ignited as you thrust your thumb and forefinger into the fire.

Your face twists and contorts as you wince in pain.

The tension is almost unbearable as you slowly withdraw your finger tips from the flame.

You turn your hand toward the onlookers. Your skin is reddish and blistered. You've got two distinct blisters.

But this isn't just a stunt... it's magic.

Your skin has blistered in the shape of your spectator's chosen card!

Manufacturer Says

Official B_Magic Review! Report this review

Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.

I used to perform Pyro Perception and actually liked it for the most part. Then several things happened that downgraded this effect to two stars:

1. The blisters created with this were hit and miss for me. It became frustrating at times to perform this only for audiences to have to really inspect my fingers like crazy to decipher what they showed. I think different skin types (elasticity of the hands) yield different results with this. Sometimes it worked well, other times not so well.

2. Tim Trono's "Branded" came out and was a much better and practical way of doing the effect. Unlike Pyro Perception, Branded worked for me everytime and was much easier and made more sense from a performance perspective. **You can buy BRANDED here at Penguin**

3. After performing Branded for a long time, the entire blister-illusion effect was revealed by the masked magician on television, and from my end, a lot of people saw it, so even Branded got retired.

Thats a triple-whammy of bad news for Pyro Perception for me. If you want this effect, I would highly recommend Branded over this method. It's easier, works better, and is much more practical.

Hot stuff! Report this review

A very unique and very cool way to reveal a card! The gimmick can be used in such a way as to reveal a thought of number too which is what I tend to use it more for.

The only downside is that is does take up valuable pocket space, and as a walkabout magician I don't like to clutter my pockets too much.

If you are known for carrying a lighter around all the time this is a great trick for you. Borrow a deck of cards, and borrow a lighter and you're ready to go. Have your spectator take a card and show it around. They can shuffle the deck, and they can hold the deck. You don't even need it back. Borrow a lighter and wave your finger over it and watch the faces of your spectator change. From my experience, this is one of those effects that gets big reactions. I use it in my routine and it's never failed. Add to Cart now.

Easy, powerful, packs small Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is an extremly powerful gimmick that packs small and WILL last a lifetime. Other than the force, the trick is basically self working and your audience will flip when you use the match to burn their card into your fingers. ideal for resteraunt and walk around..add to cart

A nice way to show more than just another card trick Report this review

While the "make a blister on your finger" trick may be a little old, this effect puts a new twist in it. The spectator chooses a card, you bring out a lighter and proceed to light it up, "grab" the flame, and then show your fingertips to show them their chosen card.

The nice thing about this trick is that you can repeat it four times with different results. In truth, if the setup is right you can actually switch around the pips to get more combinations, but that will require a little more wiggle room when the spectator isn't watching you closely.

The gimmick is very well made and fits reasonably well in your pocket. You're better off putting this in your jacket pocket as it gives you more room to "do the magic", but if you wear loose pants you can make it work in your pants pocket as well. There is something special about the gimmick that allows you to pick the right card to blister simply by touch.

You need to be able to force a card, and above everything else you need to be able to sell what you're doing. Performance is key here. You're trying to push some supernatural event, so this needs to be a bit mysterious.

For the price, this is a nice effect that offers something different than the usual card trick.

support original ideas like this. Do not support some of the rip offs. There has been a recent rip off of this effect. Make sure to get pyro perception which is an original idea.

Awesome Trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 9th, 2006
As soon as I opened the package, I knew what I was supposed to do with it. You do not even need the instructions (although they are short and good, you do not need them) This is an awesome effect. I am going to use this in most of my acts. Please, I know it is out of stock right now, but wait for a liitle bit and you will be SUPER HAPPY that you got it. The gimmick will last you forever, it takes very little memorization, You can have them pick only 4 cards, but it is not a big deal. Please buy this, i can not recommend this enough.
