"Not only do I love this effect but I was pleasantly surprised that the method was so much easier than I thought it would be. I WILL be using this." -Cameron Francis

"I have played with this plot many times and gone nowhere. Turns out David Regal nailed it almost thirty years ago! Streamlined and capturing the ending that had eluded me, this is a terrific version of Oil and Water." -John Bannon

Imagine doing an oil and water routine where the red cards are genuinely interlaced between the black cards before they separate. Now imagine that the black cards and the red cards have different colored backs. Now imagine it uses no gaffs and very simple sleight of hand. Now stop imagining because this is Perfectly Oiled.

Here’s what happens. The magician introduces the concept of oil and water and how they separate. Eight cards are introduced. 4 blue-backed black cards and 4 red-backed red cards. The cards are interlaced and separate when they are face up. The cards are interlaced again and sort while face down. The final kicker is that with a shake the colors re-mix right in front of the spectator’s eyes.

Not only is this routine easy to do, but David teaches how to sell the Oil and Water plot. As with all of David Regal’s routine this powerful effect comes with a fantastic routine. Perfectly Oiled is the perfect packet trick to add to your repertoire.

Pure Simplicity, Maximum Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2019
First, I admit I'm not a fan of the Oil and Water premise. There was always too much counting and not enough motivation for the effect, for me.

David Regal's version WHOA! Get ready! The backs are involved, too!

Four BLUE backed BLACK cards cleanly interlace with four RED backed RED cards and SEPARATE. Twice.

Squeaky clean. It'll make you and your spectators feel good all over!

The kicker ending has the separated backs instantly REMIX their colors in the spectator's hands.

Highly recommended! Simple clean, beautiful!

David you Devil … you did it again! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2019
You may have already learned one of many Oil & Water routines or are already performing one but this one is killer - ‘Daddy' of the all. This is a two phased routine like something you have never seen before. No gimmicks, no extra cards to fumble with, relatively little sleight of hand, utilizes a very powerful routine involving not just the fronts of the cards but the backs too. Want to use a borrowed cards … no problem, go ahead. This is really huge with a killer ending for your spectators.

David is really brilliant and a great teacher too. The premise he uses in his routine and patter is layered to really sell and amaze your spectators. The small sleight that he employs is probably something you ready know if you have worked with cards but for anyone relatively new to cards, not only will this be easy for you to learn, but it will be an invaluable tool for you to incorporate into other cards effects in the future. I really like the fact that the spectator gets involved and gets to touch the cards in the process of this effect.

This is really a sweet trick to own, learn and perform. Spend a little time learning this one and you will want to add it to your performing repertoire as soon as you can. You can’t go wrong with a David Regal creation, you won’t be sorry.

Standing in the shoulders of giants Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2019
There may be nothing new in magic but there are definitely improvements. David spends time giving the history of oil and water effects in general and the two tricks leading up to this.

We have a multi phase oil and water effect where not only are the faces shown to separate but also the backs. You use only 8 cards, if you can borrow 2 different colored decks you can openly choose 4 from each and go into the effect. No gimmicks needed.

Sleight-wise it’s almost all done with the obvious sleight that you should know, but it is briefly taught. A few minor “moves,” really more like adjustments, are needed but are done as part of other open moves so nothing is out of wack. If you didn’t see it in the trailer your spectators won’t either.

If you do Oil and Water you need this. If you do anything with cards and don’t do O&W you need this even more.

You will have fun with this and leave your spectators both clueless and entertained. Of course you can never go wrong with David Regal.

3 phases - now with more oil AND water! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 17th, 2019
David Regal - in the 17 minute how-to video - spends a fair amount of time going over the history of Oil & Water, the variations, etc. It's nice touch, and works well as a connect-the-dots on how this one came to be eventually.

What Regal delivers is a routine that can be done with any two decks (of different colors/backs, naturally) with really no prep involved. The three phases of this effect build off one another, with the final change seemingly occurring in the spectator's hand.

This is something that just about anyone familiar with basic card handling should be able to manage with some practice, and none of the moves are particularly difficult (and should already be known to most of you).

Oil & Water is a classic for a reason, but David Regal tweaks this staple into something larger and ultimately much more engaging.

A winner....

A great oil and water routune Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 17th, 2019
Oil and water is one of those card tricks that I never cared for. I don't know why, but for some reason, most of the performances I see fall flat. Perfectly Oiled is not like the others. I love the fact that the black cards and red cards have different colored backs, making it seem fairer and easier to follow. The moves are quite simple and David does an excellent job teaching this effect.

A GREAT Oli and water effect with no gimmicks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2019
David Regal’s “Perfectly Oiled” is a great effect that accomplishes some eye watering transformations and uses no gimmicks. Also he’s added a premise to the effect that give the audience a reason to want to see more.
His methods do involve some sleight of hand, but it’s all really basic moves. What really nice is the way he performs the moves and the timing he uses makes it so there appear to be no moves used. N9 fancy counts or mixing.

If you like what you see in the video, you’ll love Perfectly Oiled.
Highly Recommneded!

Fantastic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 19th, 2019
I am not much of a fan of Oil and Water. This version is just really, really good. The idea of using both the faces and the backs of the cards is inspired. The crediting is beyond great and the effect will leave spectators stunned. It will take some practice (but most good tricks do) and it is worth it. Regal has a mind for coming up with great tricks and this is one of them. Well worth the money to a worker,

Absolute Perfection! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2019
David Regal is one of my favorite creators. He manages to come up with some really incredible effects that have been refined to perfection. This is another of his winners!

He starts with a common plot in magic, then boils it down to the simplest and most deceptive version of oil & water I have ever seen. While he's at it he manages to make this one of the easiest versions as well. Thanks to his clear & concise teaching you will learn this quickly.

This is a masterpiece! I think you will love it.

Logical Oil & Water Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 25th, 2019
Nicely thought out routine. Oil & Water has always been a favorite. Now it has even more impact on laymen due to both fronts and backs being involved. It also tickled me that it gets progressively simpler in handling as the routine progresses.
