Shadow X by Arnel Renegado (DRM Protected Video Download)
Price: $4.95
In stock: Download INSTANTLY.

Imagine a spectator selects a card and signs it, then the magician amazingly moves one of the pips and transfers it on to the spectator's hand and it turns into a real ink! Real ink! Immediately hand the card for examination, nothing to take away or ditch! Leave your spectator with a remembrance with the real ink printed into their palm.

I like this effect alot! BUT, without revealing to much, then my advise is to use "Pigment Ink" instead! It will last longer and look better! :D Other then that... ITS STRONG AND LOOKS REALLY GOOD! :D GET THIS!!!

Lots of prep isn't a problem if the trick is worth it but this requires the destruction of some cards to make the gimmick and of course some ink. Then, if you do it as the DVD shows you must be prepared to destroy another card as the souvenir. You need to purchase a whole deck of duplicates and a double backer for this so expect to spend more to make the gimmick.
Oh, talking of making the gimmick, the instruction is really bad. I hate to point out the obvious but if you are going to instruct in English you should be able to speak the language fluently so you can explain what to do. Perhaps I'm a bit thick but I struggled to understand the instructions. Hopefully, when my additional materials arrive I will feel differently when I have made the gimmick and performed the trick but I will have to wait until I have all the parts. I gave this two stars because, as an optimist, I'm hoping all the effort will pay off but I was really tempted to give this 1 star!!

Yes, the gimmick requires some construction, what a concept. If you are into card gimmicks, than the amount of cards this requires isn't any different from those in the past. Bicycle cards are what? $2-3 a pack, don't buy any gimmicked card tricks if you can't afford to buy a few decks because all of them are arts and crafts projects.

Second, Arnel is from the Philippines. There are 12 different languages spoken there but amongst them is English. I will say that he speaks soft and slow but other than that if you had trouble understanding him, you either have a low IQ or horrible audio on your computer. There was not a single word he spoke that I didn't understand. I'm not from the Philippines and neither can I speak any other language besides English.

Now down to the trick. I bought the original shadow from theory 11's "the wire", a few years back and it needed some work to go with my liking. His newly designed gimmick is great and I'm surprised that I didn't think of it. I wrote Arnel several times and told him that the trick was great [it is] and needed a more streamlined gimmick to avoid problems. He agreed and went to work on this version.

I mean seriously, what is more awesome than leaving ink on your spectator's palm for them to take away and even after they wash their hands, it will take a few days to fade? This is one of those tricks that leaves a great lasting impression with the spectator.

Arnel is just giving you a demo on what the basic handling is but don't be a clone and just use that presentation and handling, come up with your own. I'm going to use this in a mentalism approach using a psychological force with some readings. If you say, "that's it", it's because you are not creative enough to appreciate this and provide the adequate presentation that it deserves.

this is actually really practical.unlike other ink tricks like exile.I like how he gets right to the point and doesn't fool around.Even though his English isn't that good, I understood him very well.There are a few things to make the gimmick that you might need to get at homedepot or something.And he finds a way to apply the ink to the card and make it last long so it is still practical.We need more products like this on penguin.Underpriced,practical miracles!
