"John's Slow Motion Oil and Water is a beautiful magic. It's well constructed from beginning to end with each phase building and becoming stronger until the inevitable happens. All I know for sure is that this piece is going right into my working set. It's that good." - Mike Kaminskas

"John has put together a real nice and tight sequence here that allows for all the magic to happen slowly while the cards are face up. Also keeping the spectators focused on each sequence makes this a excellent version!" -Doc Docherty

"What a unique and practical approach to Oil and Water from one of my favorite card magicians!" - Jason Dean

"Typical John Carey -- he uses standard moves in a non-standard way to produce an offbeat Oil and Water that fools and entertains real, live lay lay audiences. Love it!" -J. K Hartman

"I love this routine! John has made it so simple, it's almost fair...." - Andrew Gerard

"John is the undisputed master at streamlining classics and Slow Motion Oil and Water is testament to this. A great version of the plot perfect for the worker. It’s super clean, very visual and surprisingly easy to perform. Don’t even think about it, JUST BUY IT!" - Peter Nardi


"A boat load of magic for such a small packet of cards! Fantastic construction!" - Cameron Francis

"Slow Motion Oil and Water is simple and effective - typically John Carey!" - Paul Cummins

"John Carey has definitely found the 'sweet spot' in this rendition of Oil and Water. As the cards magically separate, mix, and separate again in a progressive manner, so does the level of suspense and surprise progress with the addition of each card. This construction inherently infuses more drama than usually encountered with the Oil and Water plot." - Jack Carpenter

Slow AND easy.



John Carey has knack for making a simple card trick into a miracle. Slow Motion Oil and Water is a very simple effect turned into a miracle. Four red cards and four black cards are placed on the table and then magically transposed. Then, you take another one of each color and mix the colors. Impossibly, the cards un-mix themselves. Finally, with no seeming sleight of hand from the magician, you end with the ultimate color separation.



Slow Motion Oil and Water is so visual. And it happens with a very simple method making it really seem impossible. The cards are normal and you can even do this with a borrowed deck. It really looks like you are mixing cards in the fairest way possible. And then, by magic, they un-mix or mix at your command.

A worker Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 31st, 2017
Lately my main complaint about most of the tricks put out in the magic market is that they aren't workers. You won't actually do them more than a handful of times in real life. Either they're not that strong, they have terrible angles, the set-up is impractical, or the like. This is the first trick I've bought in the last few months that is an actual worker that you will do all the time.

One thing I do want to point out off the bat is that the first phase is really weak. First of all, he has the worst version of the monte move I've seen in a long time. Secondly, even if he was doing a better version of it it's not meant to be done so overtly. It's meant to be much more casual. That being said, in this particular trick it's not as bad. There something to be said for starting off this trick with a not so convincing transpo and then building up from there, but I would still jump straight to phase two. From there on it's really strong and people understand there's no such thing as a mixture unless you have two of each color.

The moves are very well taught with great close ups on the more complicated moves.To be honest a beginner is probably going to find this trick too difficult and the more advanced magician probably already can do most of the moves in his sleep since these are common moves for the most part (though I should point out his version of the c*** looked fishy to me. You'd be better off with the standard version of it).

One thing I always ask myself when someone puts out their version of a standard trick is "Is there a reason this trick was published? Is it significantly different from previous versions of this trick in a good way? Will people who already do a version of this trick gain anything by learning this version" The answer to these questions are yes less than 20% of the time but I'm proud to say that this is within the 20% that do deserve to be published.

This trick is highly recommended for the intermediate or advanced magician. It's impromptu, has very good angles, and for the most part uses moves you already know so it shouldn't take you too long to learn.
A beginner should expect to spend a lot of time learning this, but consider it time well spent because these are very useful moves and this is a trick that you will be doing for the rest of my life.

Great Routine for a Classic Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2017
This is really just Carey teaching his version of a routine that creates the classic oil and water effect, but his routine is a real stunner, particularly the final phase, which I will absolutely be using to close my own oil and water routine. The instruction itself is less than ten minutes - this is not a negative or a positive, but a statement of fact so that you know what you're getting. Carey gives very little instructions on the moves and techniques used, instead focusing on the routine itself. This has upsides and downsides - the downside is that beginners might feel a bit lost because there is insufficient information in the video to learn the techniques Carey uses. The upside is that more experienced magicians don't have to be subjected to explanations of moves that they've seen and done thousands of times before. It's a tradeoff. Also: The moves Carey uses in the routine are not particularly difficult, but require some comfort with basic sleight of hand techniques. Ultimately, I very much enjoyed this video and absolutely will be including his "slow motion" final phase in my own presentations.

Borrowed deck- no gimmicks -pure sleights Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2017
I've seen other oil and water routines that sort of left me underwhelmed. But John Carey's Slow Motion Oil and Water is the best version I've ever seen! John does a great job of teaching the sleights, but I'll have to watch it a few times and practice a bit to get it all down. I think it looks like this is worth the work. Great job John!

Fabulous oil and water routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2017
This is a great version of the oil and water routine you can learn to differentiate yourself from the rest. I like the gradual separation process this routine features at the end. There are some moves I wasn't familiar with that he teaches that I can utilize for other presentations. Oil and water is a classic card trick, and this is a great addition to the other methods out there.

Love it !! Truly slow motion !! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2017
I have never found an oil and water that is clean enough or doesn’t require a ton of finger flicking. This is a brilliant variation that happens slow and clean. It will fool the toughest skeptic but it will also entertain the most comical. Everything you’re looking for in an oil an water

Well choreographed routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2017
Oil and water is a classic trick that can be confusing or require a lot of finger flicking or both. This is version is clean, straightforward and builds from a single transposition to the climax where all the cards separate. There is some finger flicking required, if you're an experienced card guy you'll be doing this right away, if not you will learn some moves that will come in handy as you progress so learn them and practice.

This is a packet trick that can be done from a borrowed deck, there is nothing that can't be done in the open and once learned you will be ready to perform at a moments notice.

Also, as taught you can use any phase stand-alone or to supplement your current oil and water routine. You can also stop at any phase if you are table hopping and the food arrives.

I was provided a free copy of this download in return for an honest and unbiased review.

John does an excellent job teaching you how to perform his version of a classic trick. He clearly explains the simple sleights required to make the magic happen. This is a good lesson for beginners. If you like the demo video, you'll like this trick. It's easy & fun to perform.

Simply Amazing! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 31st, 2017
I was never a huge fan of the Oil and Water effect...until now! This is a beautiful routine that has several moments of magic building upon the other. John Carey does a fantastic job of teaching all of the special moves that make this affect simply amazing! Some of the "moves" are quite simple and can be picked up immediately while other moves will take some practice to master. However, it is worth taking the time to practice and get the moves down smoothly. While this trick is called "Slow Motion" for good reason, it also packs a lot of fast-paced magic in a professional routine. I love that there are no gimmicks and everything can be examined. This is a real-world worker that will definitely become a part of my walk-around performances!
