I got this excellent and VERY well made gimmick the other day, did try it out several times - The
plot is super clean and easy, as well as it is perfected, but... as my skin often tends to get very,
very dry (due to the Scandinavian cold and rough climate over here) it kind of bothers me that it's
very hard to get the revelation onto a spectator's hand properly. The gimmicked *** wears off
quickly here in Sweden. This effect may work way better in a more humid and moist environment, but
if you do have dry skin, it is not at all as effective as it would be in a warmer and naturally
humid environment. So unfortunately, this trick will get only 3 out of 5 stars. For me. Sorry...

I have tried this a half dozen times, but it does not work for me. Apparently it works for many
other people, but I cannot get the stuff to transfer from my hand to someone else even if I do it
immediately after marking my own hand. After writing on my own skin or a card I can get salt, pepper
or ash to stick to it, but no transfer has worked yet.

Epic Fail! Dries out very quickly in the SC coastal heat and humidity. After 5 minutes, it did not
even show up on my hands. Cool idea, poor product.

I love the idea of this, though I am having the same problem as another reviewer- I cannot seem to
make the ink transfer from my hand to the spectator- I’ve tried different positions on my palm and
finger, and I’ve tried pressing very hard.
Would someone having success *please* give me
some pointers? The DVD only suggests playing around with it...

I have only experimented with this gimmick for a short while but the results have been very good.
Finally a convenient way to do ANY type of reveal on another persons skin. The method of marking
people works extremely well. One of the best attributes is the ability to mark yourself and then
sometime later do the transfer. The card routine taught with the gimmick is a good one but barely
scratches the surface of what a creative mind can do with this tool. You will need to experiment
with various products that can cause the reveal e.g. salt, sugar, pepper, ashes etc. to see the
different effects each one make but it is worth the kitchen experiment. Sugar is my current
Caution: Some people react strongly to symbols appearing on their body. Think about
that before you inadvertently tag someone with an upside down cross and use ashes for the
reveal....but, a right side up cross revealed with white sugar imparts a completely different
feeling. See what I mean. I look forward to reading the discussion board for creative uses of this
Great job Bro's.

Now i know 'Bare'. its freaking people out and it gets great reactions. A must have. It's better
than double cross because you can revael anything with it. Great trick!

Absolutely love it! Will definitely be using this multiple times a day! If you don't have your
hands on one of these, you have to get one! I will never, ever be without one! You will not be

Great fun and loads of scope for interesting reveals. My only issue is that whilst laymen love the
effect, I'm still troubled to really justify using pepper to reveal the card even if in a
restaurant. It's just a bit random to start pouring pepper on people.
That said I've been
living by the beach for a few months and sand works perfectly. Throw in a bit of patter and get them
to dip their hand in the beach.
