"How much audiences love this trick will SHOCK YOU."

I'm going to say something that will surprise you: When you make a rose out of a napkin, you don't even NEED to do magic. It's THAT much of a crowd pleaser. And before I actually did it, I didn't believe it. I COULDN'T believe it.

So when you DO A TRICK with that rose, it's like pouring FUEL ON A FIRE.

Chris Randall is world-famous for his napkin magic, and he's finally teaching his reputation making routines. You'll never look at a napkin the same way again.

"Magic is about connecting with people. And Chris Randall does it with nothing but NAPKINS." -Maxwell Murphy

As a single magician working in Vegas, Chris spent years developing a bullet-proof set of tricks to have fun, amaze.. and even get a date!

IN DESERT ROSE, CHRIS TEACHES YOU

1. How he rips and VISUALLY RESTORES a napkin-rose.

2. How he makes the perfect napkin rose (worth the price alone)

3. Special bonus for the single crowd: Chris teaches his now-famous "7 Digits" finale. A super visual trick that ends with a funny and clever phone-number swap.

PLUS: If you have flash-paper, you'll be able to do Chris's hyper-visual fire-ball restoration.

PROFESSIONALS: Using nothing but napkins, Chris has a blast everywhere he goes. Refined over thousands of performances, what you're getting here is a rock-solid stunner.

Rose is Twisted Beforehand Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 29th, 2014
As you see in the demo, this is a cute, commercial effect. What you don't see in the demo, but might be important for experienced napkin rose makers, is that the rose needs to be set-up before you present it to your spectator(s). Since one of the charms of the napkin rose is making it in front of your audience, potential buyers should realize that the routine does not accommodate this aspect. Personally, I will want to come up with a way of ringing in the gimmick after the rose has been made in full view, and I was a bit disappointed to find that this was not discussed.

Decent update to the classic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2014
Although the basis of this effect is largely a classic (and virtually every magician and non-magician knows how to do it), Chris Randall updates the effect by adding some truly magical elements. Some of the tweeks on the making of the rose were needed and helpful. The "magical moments" added make this more than simply a bar stunt.

If you like the paper rose, you will get use out of this. I will be adding it to my repertoire.

Desert Rose Plus 7 Digits Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 13th, 2014
For close-up, strolling magicians, Desert Rose is a really great effect that's easy to do. The effect looks just like on the demo video when using flash paper.

I actually bought this video for the bonus effect 7 Digits and was disappointed by that effect because at the conclusion of the effect you do not know or reveal the spectator's phone number. Once the effect is over, the spectator can give you her number if she wants, but the effect ends without you having it, knowing it or revealing it.

awesome alternative to floating rose Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 11th, 2014
ok once i saw the trailer for this effect i was sold. i've done floating rose by kevin james so i knew this effect was very similar. i saw him do the effect to some girl. wow i dont think i could have done the floating rose by kevin james to a girl on the street. it would take some preparation. this takes barely any preparation other than making the napkin rose.

very easy and simple trick. it looks beautiful. i haven't done floating rose by kevin james since a few years now so i really need to practice this trick but i should be able to present it out to girls this weekend. :)

this is an awesome trick. ADD TO CART.

waste of money Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2014
first of all dont get this trick because of the bonus effect 7 digits.all you do is get your phone number to appear on a piece of napkin using a move that im pretty sure were all familiar with.but you dont end up knowing the spectators phone number or anything a mazing for that manner.Second i was expecting something more creative for the method,you could probably do this trick just by watching the trailer and your first guess will probably be the method.Im only 12 and i only have a small amount of money to spend,its not like if theres a bad trick i get i can just throw it out and get a new one,its very rare for me to get something like this.So now i have to wait another whole month or so to actually get something good.

This trick is good for like ULTIMATE beginners.i would recommend vanishing a coin besides this useless stuff.

Great quick effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 25th, 2014
This is a nifty little piece of magic.

Desert Rose:
The setup is quick, however it can't be performed impromptu. As a restaurant worker, I am having trouble seeing how this will be practical as the roses can get crushed in your jacket (to avoid giving away the secret, it's risky to make the roses in front of the spectators). However maybe with a bit of help from the restaurant, you can store them somewhere and perform it when there is a special occasion? Just an idea.

7 Digits:
This is a cool and bold way to give your number out, not guaranteeing a number in return (so make sure you brushed your hair that day). Being married or in a relationship might render this trick irrelevant, however, instead of the line: "If you need a tour guide whilst you're here in ______ you know where to find one (ie: you)" you could say something like "If you need an entertainer for your next event, you know where to find one", so it's a neat way to hand out your non-business card, you would only forfeit getting their number in return... unless you said something a little later, like "wouldn't it be great if this napkin had your contact details on?" instead of asking them for THEIR business card for you to make contact with (as all business magicians should).

Overall, Chris taught the material well, a bit fast to be honest. I fear newbies to magic might have trouble with the sleight he taught in 7 Digits, however it's not a tough one.

Good job all involved!

Beautiful Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 17th, 2014
I purchased the download for the rose effect and was not disappointed. This can be used on many occasions and with a minimal of preparation. Excellent explanation for making the rose; what to use, how to use it, and handling tips to enhance the finished product. Chris gives several options for doing the effect, that are all practical and effective, including using flash paper. Of course flash paper is the most dramatic; I have never used flash paper and appreciated his advice on the safety issues of using fire and the bits to make it most effective and safe at the same time.
